RBC Handicap Competitions (Laycock & Bilbey Cups)

 

Some additional options have been added to the Bridgewebs Competitions methods which enable the Laycock and Bilbey Cups to be calculated automatically in a manner (almost) identically to that used by our own proprietary software. The difference is in the way that those without a relevant handicap are treated. In the Laycock Cup the RBC rules aver that those who have not played 10 times on Cup nights over the years are ineligible for the competition. In the Bilbey Cup the RBC rules state that anyone who did not play 6 times in the previous 6 monthly period will have a handicap of 0. The Bridgewebs system applies an arbitrary handicap of 5 in either case. The effect of these differences depends on individual circumstances but in general it will make it very difficult rather than impossible for a non-handicapped person to head up the Laycock Cup rankings and will make it much less likely that a non-handicapped player can lead the Bilbey Cup rankings. Note that in both cases we will still need to calculate the current handicaps for players in both competitions and will need to manually exclude any players who regularly play on Thursdays if their Laycock cup handicap is too good.
