Special Snowflakes - How Many? Posted on December 22, 2020 at 03:05:33 PM by Craig G
Let's say you pick a game group or game classification, such as Dania Singles Championship, or Miami early or late singles games.
Then you simplify things by assuming there are exactly 8 players in each group.
With random post assignments, that works out to 40,320 different possible lineups for each group. So if a season has only hundreds of games of that type, chances are that each game is going to be different.
And of course, since there are usually more than 8 participants within a group, the actual number of probable combos is much higher.
That puts a clearer light on the uniqueness of Dania's replay games of yesteryear. We see that today, unless the fronton deliberately schedules it, each game will be slightly different.
As opposed to the handicapped post assignments era, which probably had some duplicates.
