is there a term for "largest possible minority?"

A hand of bridge has 13 tricks, and one can win between 0 and 13 tricks in a hand.

Between 0 and 6 tricks would constitute a minority of tricks, with 6 being the largest possible (discrete) minority. Seven tricks would be a majority.

So bidding systems are built on a base of six tricks. That is a bid of "one heart" really means "seven tricks, with hearts as trumps."

Is there a term, such as "superminority," that would refer to this base of six tricks as the "largest possible minority."

• @ermanen:"Anything." I almost cited the example of 49 out of 100 Senators, or 217 out of 435 Congress people. Commented Mar 24, 2014 at 17:04

• The plurality answer below popped into my head at first, but on further reading of your question, you're basically asking for a noun describing `((n/2)-1)` where n is the number of things, right?

• In these circumstances, wouldn't the word for the largest possible minority be 'six'? Commented Mar 24, 2014 at 18:09
