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 - Complete, enjoyed and well attended.
IBM Cup Simultaneous Pairs (Charity Event), February 12 – 16 (2018)
Bayer No-Fear Simultaneous Pairs, April 23 - 27
The IBM Cup, one of the HIWCBA Charity Events will be held in the week of February 12-16th in at least the following clubs:
Monday 12th Feb: Andover , Titchfield , Newport IOW
Tuesday 13th Feb: Petersfield, Winchester
Thursday 15th Feb: Hayling Island, Portchester
Friday 16th Feb: Basingstoke
Once again we are supporting the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. 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 Petersfield, Hayling Island, Winchester and Basingstoke.
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 February 12-16th. 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 email@example.com
