Bray Summer League Rules. 

A masters degree in hard sums is needed to  work out the scoring and how the prizes will be awarded but here goes:

Along with the normal weekly prizes the €500 in League Prizes will be awarded at the end of the competition.

  • The top 9 scores from 12 evenings count towards overall prizes
  • Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd places
  • Prizes include the best visitor, subject to numbers and playing a min of 6 times. 
  • There will be a prize for the top player each month who does not feature in the overall prizes.

Players are eligible for one prize only.

And now the easy bit - the awarding of points. 

There will be Attendance Points and Placing Points

This year the league has been changed to favour less experienced players by awarding attendance points, which will be higher for the lower-graded players.

  • 10 points for  an A player,
  • 8 AM,
  • 6 RM,
  • 4 NM +

For any pair playing the attendance points of the lower-graded player will be awarded to both players. So if Alan and BJ play together they will get 4pts but if they play with Jason they will get 8pts.

As with previous leagues placing points will be awarded on a sliding scale of 15 pts to the top pair down to 1pt to the pair in 15th place.

Luckily we don't have to pass a test on this year's rules before taking part in the competition and the more nights that you play the clearer they will become!

Alan found the winning strategy again.

Updated Result

After several reviews of the scores, we have a verified result. As the two top teams had the same score, the Tie-Break rule applies. This means that the winner of the direct match between Team 5 and Team 8 takes the trophy. 

Well done Alan O'Sullivan & John Noonan and Mairead Haugh & Roisin De Jong.

We would like to highlight to all members of the importance of verifying the correct score/orientation when accepting the score on all boards.   

Please note that the time limit for any changes in the score is 5 minutes after getting your score on the bridgemates at the end of the session. 

If any score entered incorrectly is not corrected by the TD by the end of play then the results uploaded on the website will stand as entered.
