This event is aimed at players in the county who have limited experience of competitive bridge. Entry is limited to non-EBU members and EBU members below the rank of * Master as detailed below.
Only systems and conventions defined as Level 2 in the EBU Blue Book are permitted. This covers popular systems that less experienced players will find familiar, such as: Acol and Precision, five-card majors with better minor or short club, Stayman and transfers over No Trumps, weak twos, Blackwood and Gerber. Multi style openings are not allowed.
The leading pairs will qualify to play in the Bedfordshire Champions Trophy as set out in the information about that event.
The Marsh Trophy was presented by Janet and Derek Marsh.
To be eligible, players must have fewer than 10,000 Master Points in total (* Master) or fewer than 5,000 Master Points including 10 or more Green Points (Premier Master). Anyone who needs to confirm eligibility may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
