A reminder...
A reminder...

If you register for a session, and do not get included when the session starts (ie you are booted), please always chat DarrenE and LizGahan (the TDs), because if there is a half table we can add you back in. 

We cannot, however, add you back in if there is no half table.  Sorry!


If you are affected by a connection issue, then you are expected to return.

If your partner is affected, you are expected to remain at the table until the TD confirms you may withdraw.  Thank you.  

Can you help...

as a substitute in our events? 
If so, please chat DarrenE & LizGahan when logged in. Thank you!

Sunday afternoons @ 2pm ~ Swiss Pairs
Sunday afternoons @ 2pm ~ Swiss Pairs

Why not join in?

Swiss Pairs (with a Danish twist) is normal matchpointed pairs (just like any other Circle session) with the only difference being that instead of playing a pre-defined movement, from round 2, pairs are assigned against a pair similarly placed on the current ranking eg 1st v 2nd, 3rd v 4th, etc. 

In Swiss Pairs you will only every play a pair once, with assignments being adjusted accordingly (eg if 1st has already played 2nd, they play 3rd, etc), to ensure no one plays the same pair twice. 

The Danish twist, however, ignores the Swiss requirement of never playing the same pair more than once, and simply assigns 1st v 2nd, 3rd v 4th, etc.

So no matter how well, or badly, you are doing, there will always be something to play for - whether the top spot, or avoiding the bottom spot - alongside those doing as well, or badly, as you!
