EBU MASTERS PAIRS 2020

Oxford Bridge Club is holding a heat of the Masters Pairs 2020 competition on Sunday 1 March.  This is a national two-session one-day green-pointed event held simultaneously at several different centres. 

It is open to all players below the rank of Regional Master. This includes: Local Masters, Club Masters, Area Masters, District Masters, County Masters, Masters, Advanced Masters, Star Masters, Tournament Masters or Premier Masters.

This event gives players an unusual chance to earn green points in their local area, and in the absence of higher ranked players. Further details can be found on the EBU website

Play starts at 11am, and is expected to finish at about 6.00 to 6.30pm. Entry fee £12.00 per player (£7.00 for juniors aged under 26 years). 

Further details about the Oxford heat and online booking are available via this link

CROSS-IMP PAIRS ON FRIDAY EVENINGS

Following requests from some members, we’re starting a new regular cross-IMP pairs session on the fourth Friday of the month, starting on Friday 24th January at 7.15pm. 

Cross-IMPing is a bit like teams.  If you’re not familiar with teams play, see this document on teams tactics.  Your score is IMPed using the scores of opponents at all other tables, and this total is then averaged (i.e. divided by the number of results).  The result is your IMP score for the board.  So it’s really like playing teams, with all other pairs playing the other direction as your team-mates.  Or you can think of it as teams without team-mates.  Your successes are yours and your mistakes cannot be put down to team-mates!
