HANDICAP INDIVIDUAL

This competition should interest all those improving players. A bit like a golf handicap, your combined bridge handicaps (with that of your partner) should level the playing field. So if you have a good evening, after applying your combined handicap you should finish high in the field. Obviously, if you play with a pro you may get a better score, but your handicap will be less helpful.So you may choose someone of your own level, to benefit from their lower handicap.

To be in contention to win you need to play with at least 6 different partners and your best 6 scores (all with different partners), will count towards your final score. So, why not organise your diary to play with a few different people and compete in 2017?
