Maths olympiad, minimum possible number of points

Six players compete in a tournament. Each player plays exactly two games against every other player. In each game, the winning player earns 2 points and the losing player earns 0 points. If the game results a draw (tie), each player earns 1 point. What is the minimum possible number of points that a player needs ti earn in order to guarantee that he/she will be champion (i.e he/she has more points than every other player)?
