Click here for 2018B Results.

The Saturday TEAMS League 2018B comprises 4+ Team Captains who will arrange to field a team every other Saturday starting 30th March 2018. Each match will comprise 3 x 8-board stanzas and the overall result of the 24-board match is converted to VPs on the approved scale. The aim of this League is to maximise fun but also to provide competitive teams play at BCL and therefore as many subs as needed to complete matches may be used. Freelancers names will be posted here and more occasional players are welcome to have their names added to the Freelancers list by sending a Sticky to SpecialComps.

This League will offer three Options that Captains may pursue by Sticky with their opposing Captain should they wish.

However
both Captains must agree to any change from the Default.

    1. Should a Team wish to play on a day other than the default Saturday then they may suggest that to their opps. If the match is late, it will be scored as 9-9 until it is played. Please inform SpecialComps if you agree this option.
    2.
Should a Team wish to start earlier or later than the Default time of 20.00 UK local time (20:00 GMT winter/19:00 GMT Summer)  they may suggest another start time                    
    3. Should a Team wish to limit the match to 16 boards they may offer this alternative to their opps.
                                       

THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PLAYING 

Captains should ensure that all their Team Members are aware of the simple Instructions below which must be followed to ensure the smooth running of the evenings.

There are only three instructions:

1. The Captain of the lowest number Team starts a Match Table for each Round;

2. The opposing Captain sits North at the 'B' Table corresponding to the 'A' Table started by their opps;

3. Team Members ALWAYS follow their Captain and ALWAYS start at their Captainís Table

      
Note: the Server moves players after 4 boards and members leave the Table ONLY after 8/16 boards have been played

SSD and SSDExtra

The use of SSDExtras in this competition is now obligatory and all pairs must make available a properly-completed SSDExtra for their opponents so that full system disclosure as required by the Laws of Bridge becomes the norm. Any pair failing to make available a sensibly-completed SSDExtra to their opponents could have 1 VP transferred from their score to their opponents score at the end of the match. In the event of a dispute the Tournament Director's decision will be final.

Pairs playing uncommon artificial methods are expected to inform their opponents in advance and offer to provide details, as some partnerships like to prepare defences.
