SBU Lockdown Swiss Pairs

Every Saturday Evening at 7 pm for 9 Weeks, starting 8th August on BBO

This event is a continuation of an initiative by Harry Smith

All SBU members are invited to enter. Registration for each event from 5 pm on the day, in the SBU Virtual Club on BBO.

Format for each event:
• 5 rounds of 5 boards scored in IMPs converted, post event, to VP
• Open to SBU members on any Saturday, stand-ins will be online to make up a half table
• There is no requirement to play in every tournament
• The sum of each pair’s six best scores will determine the final placings after week 9
• Black masterpoints will be awarded on the club scale for each separate tournament and for the final ranking after week 9
• Entry fee: 4BBO$ pp for each tournament payable online at registration
• Although unlikely, BBO Swiss software does not prevent pairs with similar scores playing each other more than once in the same tournament
• Initial seating in each tournament will be randomly assigned. Proceeds will be used to train online directors for SBU Affiliated Clubs wishing to run their own tournaments

Further details for those new to BBO are available on the SBU website. This is a ‘restricted entry’ event and all those interested MUST ensure that MEMPAD is updated with your BBO username. See SBU Homepage.
