2018 competition can be seen here.

Note Well! Most competitors will play at least 4 matches (some may have a bye).  Rounds one and two allow 4 weeks to play the 2 matches, they can be played in any order.

Main competition overview Round 3 (and onwards) then proceeds as a straightforward knockout with the First and second from Rounds one and two.

Plate competition overview Round 3 (and onwards) then proceeds as a straightforward knockout with the knocked out pairs from rounds one and two plus further knocked out pairs.

All matches will comprise 20 boards and must be played in the Daily MPs Room (but NOT in Dido mode, obviously) in any deal on any day to be arranged between the two Captains.

  • As PPI-adjusted scores determine the Winner of each tie, it is VITAL that ONE member from each pair does NOT play any more boards during the course of that daily deal in the Daily MPs Room.
  • You may wish (by agreement) to swap from N/S to E/W part way through.
  • The winning captain is to sticky SpecialComps with their PPI% and date of match. The final PPI-adjusted score for the 20 boards played as notified to the members will, if necessary, be taken to 6 decimal places to determine the winning pair.
  • The ranking will be determined by number of wins and secondly (in the event of each pair winning exactly one match) by average % adjusted score achieved.
  • The random draw  is posted in full below.
  • The 1st and 2nd Round comprises two matches in groups of 3 pairs to be played by 2nd June on an all-play-all basis. The Winners and Runners-up progress to the Knockout stages.
  • The 3rd Pairs join a plate competition.
  • The Captains should contact each other ASAP to arrange a suitable time for their match to be played and as many alternative dates as possible should be given.
  • All pairs are expected to have a SSDExtra which gives full disclosure in a sensible way to their opps
  • Should any dispute occur the decision of the Tournament Manager in association with the CTD will be final.

 Malcolm - Tournament Manager
