WCBA Championship Pairs

One the consequences of Covid-19 Lockdown is that WCBA  have had to think creatively about how to hold their GREEN POINTED Championship Pairs.

It has therefore been decided to use three sessions of the County Pairs (1st Tuesdays in March / April / May) for the Championship Pairs Competition.

The same pair must play in all three sessions to qualify. The overall ranking over the three sessions will determine the GREEN POINT awards.

The top four pairs will be invited to represent the county in the EBU Corwen Trophy on 5th & 6th June which is expected to be held online.

Spring Online Virtual Club Competitions

F2F bridge being a long way off the Committee have decided to run Spring online competitions NashO3, ClarkO3 and JoHO3 in Jan-Mar 2021.

The SwissO2 competition has been abandoned as there was a significant BBO glitch in the November session meaning that only a standard duplicate pairs session could be played.

This competition is to be replaced by the SwissO3 competition which will run from Dec 2020 to Mar 2021 with the best 3 out of 4 session results counting, with NGS ranking for prizes based on November 30th 2020 grades.

Full conditions of contest for all the Spring competitions can be found via the right hand menu.

Revised Prize Format! - Prize Money for winning in each SC Level has been increased to 9 BBO$, a prize of 6 BBO$ for second place in each SC Level has been introduced.

Online Prize Money

From 1st January 2021 the Committee have decided to cease paying single online session Prize Money but instead increase the winning prizes in the Sutton Coldfield Online Virtual Bridge Club Ongoing Competitions to 9 BBO$ and to also award a 6 BBO$ prize to second place in each of the three SC Levels.
