Paul Bowyer Seminar - Making the most of your trumps.
Paul Bowyer Seminar - Making the most of your trumps.

After a gap of a couple of years Paul Bowyer will be visiting us again on Sunday February 18th. The theme of his seminar will be 'Making the most of your trumps' with the emphasis on the card play rather than the bidding. The event will be at the Victoria Club, Street from 10am until 3pm. and is free and open to all but please register your intention to attend with Jean Howard so that sufficient boards can be prepared. Basic refreshments will be available and the club bar will be open but please make your own arrangements for lunch if required.

STRATIFICATION

In order to produce more winners and thereby encourage more players the committee has decided that from now on all Pairs events will be stratified using Master Point rankings.
A - open. B < Regional Master  C< Advanced Master

N.B. A pair of mixed rank must be assigned the category of the higher-ranked player. 

Stratified Events run like any other SCBA event – all participants are part of the same field, and may play against each other. A single result list is produced, but players who have a lower Master Point ranking, so meet certain stratification criteria, are highlighted on the result list so that they can be identified. Lower ranked pairs can therefore compare their scores with both the overall results, and also with the results of those with a comparable ranking. Those who do best amongst those in the lower stratifications are awarded additional Master Points.

NEW LAWS 2017

 

You can read all about the new laws here but as far as players are concerned the main changes concern comparable calls and claims.
