On Sunday 17th June the NEBA Pairs competition will be played at Wearside Bridge Club and instead of Matchpointed Pairs scoring, we will use Butler scoring. As this will be new to many players, Norman Gray has offered this description for your perusal.
Butler is a form of scoring for pairs events, where each result is imped against the average result for all the tables, sometimes with one or more extreme results removed. The EBU recommended procedure is to remove the top & bottom score for up to 10 results on the traveller, remove the top & bottom 2 scores for 11-25 results and the top & bottom 3 when over 25 results.
SNOW - February 28 - March 3rd.
For the record, many clubs meeting on Wednesdays & Thursdays have been forced to cancel their club nights this week because of snow and high winds.
