William Tell Swiss Tournament Rules

Entry Format Unplayed Matches Points
Points Conditions of Contest
Each Team must have a registered name on the Bridge Zone website. One player should do this and act as the captain for the purposes of scheduling and reporting matches.

You cannot use a registered name that is being used in a pairs event. If you are already the captain of a team you can switch between the 2 logins on MyPage without the need to log out.

Entries are at the discretion of the tournament. Submitting an entry does not guarantee inclusion in the tournament. No reason will be given for denial of entry.

Entries will close approximately 12 hours before the start of the event. Late entries may be accepted if convenient for the movement.”
In this tournament, you will play a 7-board match each round against another team.

Teams are ranked randomly for the first round. At the end of each round the teams are ranked by the winning VP score to determine the pairing for the next round. There will typically be 7 or 8 rounds, depending on the number of entries.

The IMP difference will be converted to “Victory Points” according to the USBF Victory Point Table. A total of 20 VPs will be divided between the two teams, based on the score differential. For example, if Atlanta Bears beats Cosy Cougars by 11 IMPs, the winner will get 12.76 VP’s and the losers will get 7.24.

No two teams will play each other twice in the same event.

The projected time for each round is 75 minutes.
Unplayed matches
Matches not played by the end of the round will be given a provisional score of 12 VPs for the purpose of ranking the next round. When the match has been completed the actual score will replace the provisional score. Matches that remain uncompleted at the end of the following round will be forfeited. Forfeit score will be allocated based entirely on scheduling efforts with a maximum forfeit score of 12 VPs. It's imperative that you communicate through the scheduling form so that we have an email trail.
4 BridgeZone points will be awarded for each match won.
