Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are \(17\) teams. It requires \(2\) teams for game, so there will be \(\binom{17}{2} = 136\) games in total.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so draw an edge between team \(\color{blue}{1}\) and each of the other 16 teams : dw:1438552375693:dw
