  Abstract:   The score set of a tournament is de fined as the set of its diff erent outdegrees. In 1978 Reid [20] published the conjecture that for any set of non negative integers D there exists a tournament T whose degreeset is D. Reid proved the conjecture for tournaments containing n =1; 2 and 3 vertices. In 1986 Hager [7] published a constructive proof of the conjecture for n = 4 and 5 vertices. Yao [27] in 1989 presented an arithmetical proof of the conjecture, but general polynomial construction algorithm is not known. In [11] we described polynomial time algorithms which reconstruct the score sets containing only elements less than 7. In this paper we present and analyze earlier proposed algorithms Balancing and Shortening, further new algorithms Shifting and Hole which together reconstruct the score sets containing elements less than 9 and so give a constructive partial proof of the Reid conjecture.
