Each player plays each of the others exactly once.

No player plays two consecutive games at the same venue.

A, D, E and H play once at five venues, once on each side of one venue, and not at the remaining two venues. B, C, F and G play once at seven venues, and not at the remaining venue.

No venue is idle in two consecutive rounds.

No venue is used in two consecutive rounds.

It is seeded, so that important games come late in the tournament if player A is the best, B the second best, etc.

It has a permutation score of 1299.000114848, which is maximal.

It has a left-right asymmetry measure of 0.2820989229, which is minimal given the assignment of games to rounds and venues.
