HIWCBA will be running four Sims Pairs events again this year:
Simple Systems Simultaneous Pairs, October 30 – November 3 - Successfully complete and enjoyed by all.
Chidwick Cup Simultaneous Pairs (Charity Event), December 4 - 8
IBM Cup Simultaneous Pairs (Charity Event), February 12 – 16 (2018)
Bayer No-Fear Simultaneous Pairs, April 23 - 27
This year we are again supporting the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, and the first of our Charity Events, the Chidwick Cup, will be held in the first full week in December. HIWCBA will make a charge of £2/player (in addition to any club table money), with all profits going to the Air Ambulance.
The hands have been randomly dealt, and a full commentary has been prepared by Julian Pottage. This will be available to participants at the end of the event.
The same hands will be played in all the heats. Various clubs will hold heats throughout the week, including:
Newport (IoW) Monday 4th Petersfield Tuesday 5th
Hayling Island Thursday 7th Basingstoke Friday 8th
Obviously players may only play in one heat. Maybe you would like to find out if and when your local club is running a heat.
To run a heat all you need to do is be able to get together three full tables and play 21 boards in one session sometime during the week of December 4 – 8. Access to dealing machine and computer scoring would be useful, but we may be able to help.
If you are interested in running a heat or would just like to know more please e-mail Mike Kinsey at firstname.lastname@example.org
