New Master Point Rule

From 1st August 2015, Master Points will only be awarded for pairs events in which all the competitors are scheduled to play at least 75% of the boards used in the movement.  Thus, when the intention is to play 24 boards in a session, for example, no more than 32 boards should be in play.  For a session where we play only 21 boards, no more than 27 boards should be in play.  It is acceptable for those 24 boards to include some scheduled to be sat out by a number of pairs.  The reason for this new rule is to try to maximise the number of boards in common to all contestants.
