Inaugural Swiss Teams Event - Sunday, January 17

Wednesday, 13 January 2021 by Sandy Graham

A new Swiss Team format is being introduced on BBO. We are hoping to use this new feature to offer a full Swiss Teams Tournament on Valentines Day. Prior to that we are going to run a trial Swiss Teams game to check that everything works smoothly. This is new software, so something might go wrong (that’s where the adventure comes in). In Covid lockdown our standards for adventure are very low. :-)

The trial game will be on Sunday January 17th at 2PM. It will be 24 boards with 3 or 4 rounds. The game will be open to all levels and we expect the results to be stratified similarly to our current pairs games 

This Virtual club game will award standard master points (1.5x). Since there may be some bumps in the road with this first game, we are offering a reduced game fee of 3 BBO$.

If you wish to play in this game I am asking you to preregister by sending an email to clubmanager@grandriverbridgeclub by Thursday January 14th. You need to register as a pair or a four person team. Please include the name and BBO username for each player.
