Welcome to Burnham Bridge Club
Cross-Imp'd Pairs Monday 17th April 2017

 

Not only is the Club open for business on the Easter Monday Bank Holiday, but your committee has decided to play a Cross-Imp'd pairs competition next week, so that teams tactics will still apply but we will be playing as pairs, not teams of 4.  Normally we would play teams of 4 on the 3rd Monday in the month, but on bank holidays we often have visiting pairs from clubs that don't meet on bank holidays.

NB: The scores given for the Cross-IMP Pairs on Monday 17th April were much larger than normally shown for Cross-IMP pairs.  This is because the scoring method used shows the total of each pairs comparison with the other scores on every board, rather than the average of this total as is more usually done.  So the scores would be much smaller but the ranking would not change if the scoring method was changed.

 

Bluebell Walk

This year's bluebell walk will be on Saturday, April 22nd. It will be based a the Rising Sun at Witheridge Hill, with a morning walk, lunch and a (different) afternoon walk. You can sign up for either one of the walks and / or lunch.  There will be a sign up sheet on the table by the door on Monday April 17th.

League of Eight
Our "A" team have played seven of their nine matches in Division 1 of the B&B CBA League of 8, winning 5 and losing 2 and are currently lying 3rd in the table. Burnham "B" have played six matches, winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 4 and hence are in the relegation zone of Division 1 - however with three matches yet to be played in  April 2017 there is still an opportunity  to survive!
Our "C" team are in Division 2 and have played 8 of their 9 matches, winning 3 and losing 5, and are currently lying seventh in the table -  a win in the final match should see them finish mid-table.
 
Results for Teams-of-4 Events

As many of you will be aware, results of Club teams events are uploaded to the EBU for input into the National Grading System. However, the NGS is based on pairs' performances, and what happens with teams events is that pairs' cross-imp results are extracted for NGS purposes.

Your cross-imp  results are obtained by comparing your result on a board with every other pair playing in the same orientation as you. The difference between your score on the board and that of each other pair is converted into imps, and the average of these is your cross-imp result on the board. Your cross-imp total for the event as a whole is the sum of these board averages.

So your performance as a pair is not directly related to your team's performance.

That being the case, we're in discussion with Bridgewebs to use a modified layout of results page on our website for teams events: the main difference is that there's an extra tab labelled X-imps. The October teams result has been modified to use this proposed revised format. The dialogue with Bridgewebs is on-going, and one [temporary] consequence is that the Teams Trophy column for October shows peculiar figures. We'll put a further note on the home page once this issue has been resolved.

About Burnham Bridge Club
About Burnham Bridge Club

We have twice weekly sessions of good standard Duplicate Bridge at the very attractive South Bucks Bridge Centre - a purpose-converted 16th Century barn in its own grounds, between Beaconsfield, Maidenhead and Slough 

Our main session is at 7.30 every Monday evening, when we play Pairs, except Teams of Four on the third Monday each month except when this is a bank holiday.  A host is available to play with anyone without a partner on Pairs evenings.

We use Bridgemates, for instant scoring, with current scores displayed on a large screen.  Hand records and results print-outs are available within a few minutes of the end of every session. 

Several teams from the Club compete in the Berks and Bucks League of 8, with the A team in the first division.  We also encourage less experienced players and hold monthly free seminars before the start of an evening session.

Monday Night Host

A host is available for all Monday evening Duplicate Pairs sessions,
so anyone coming along without a partner is guaranteed a game.  This service may be used by any player not more than 6 times in a calendar year.

This does not apply for teams evenings or special events- check the calendar
