Revised CBAI Grading System

The CBAI have revised the Grading system boundaries upwards

Grade

Old limit

New Limit

Novice

0 - 1,000 local points

0 - 2,000 local points

After 5 years, all Novice are graded up to B2

Intermediate B2

0 - 2,500 local points

0 - 5,000 local points

Intermediate B1

2,500 – 4,999 local points

5,000 – 9,999 local points

Intermediate A2

5,000 – 19,999 local points

(1 – 4 National Points/NP)

10,000 – 24,999 local points

(2 – 5 National Points/NP)

Intermediate A1

4 – 10 NP

5 – 10 NP

Area Master

10 – 30 NP

10 – 40 NP

Regional Master

30 – 100 NP

40 – 100 MP

National Master

100 – 500 NP

100 – 500 NP

Life Master

500 – 1,000 NP

500 – 1,000 NP

Grand Master

 over 1,000 NP

 

Note: 1 National Point = 5,000 local points

The grades assigned on the new cards issued in September 2017 are based on the old system. So some Novice and Intermediate players may now be below the new limits and can ask to be regraded.

For example, a player with 6,000 local points will have been graded as an A2 (using the previous range of 5,000 - 19,999) and not as a B1 under the new limits.

Similarly, a player with 4,000 local points would be graded as a B1 and not a Novice.

 

This affects their eligibility to play in competitions and/or win prizes eg a competition limited to Intermediate Bs. At the recent Bray Congress, there was a prize for the Best A2 in a pairs competition open to all Intermediate A players.

Players can ask to be re-graded using the new system - so a player with 6,000 local points can ask to be re-graded as a B1 instead of an A2 or a player with 4,000 can ask to re-graded from a B2 to a Novice, as long as they have been playing for less than 5 years.

If you wish to be regraded, please ask the membership secretary who will pass the request on to Eastern Region for action. A new card will be issued with your revised grade.

 

New Laws of Bridge

The World Bridge Federation have revised the Laws of Duplicate Bridge (they usually revise the laws every 10 years, the last revision was 2007, so...)

The major changes in the laws are described in this document / click to view and or print (courtesy of Fearghal O'Boyle, National TD)
