Knarly Knights Tournament Rules

Entry Format Playing your Match Points Conditions of Contest
Each pair must be registered by a captain and have a name. We suggest teams create a fictitious name unless they expect the team roster to remain stable across all time.

No player may play for more than one team in any given tournament.
The event is a single-elimination tournament. A 16-player bracket will begin when it has been filled. A new bracket is then opened for new players and players eliminated from previous brackets. Pairings and byes will be random. Pairs entered in the Automatic Signups list will be automatically entered for the next event when they are eliminated in the current event.
Playing your match
If you are setting up the table for the match:

1. Under 'Play or Watch Bridge' when you log into BBO, click on 'Casual'.
2. Under 'Find Your Own Game' click on 'Main Bridge Club' and 'Start Table'.
3. The Description should be the Match ID number in the Pending Matches table, however this isn't essential.
4. Scoring is IMPS.
Under 'Privacy options:
5. Uncheck 'Allow kibitzers' and 'Allow kibitzers to chat with players'
6. Check 'Permission required to play'
7. Check 'Exclude new members'
8. Set 'Minimum completion rate' to 24
9. Under 'Reserve seats' set up the player names.
10. Click on 'Start Table'. This will issue invitations to all players.
11. Under Table Options you can select 'Use Random Deals' (default) or 'Randomly selected Vugraph deals'

Please note: Players must be located in the Casual area to receive the invitation.
The captain of the winning pair should report the match has been played. Any margin of IMPs, even one that rounds to 0, is decisive, but as the scores may vary slightly after the match has terminated, please wait at least one hour after the match ends to report.
The IMP result should be truncated to the nearest whole number, so 10.01 and 10.99 IMPs would both convert to 10s.
PLEASE NOTE: There have been several reports of boards that are missing from BBO Hands. These are hands that have not had been played 16 times and have been discarded. As a precaution take a couple of screen shots of the history panel before leaving the match. This may help to resolve any problems later with the score. BBO seems indifferent to the problem in spite of contacting them several times.

BridgeZone points will be awarded for each match won. In the main draw, awards will be 10 points in round 1, 15 points in round 2, 22 points in round 3, and 25% increments thereafter.
