SWISS TEAM GAMES - SUNDAY MARCH 7 and 21
In partnership with BBO, the ACBL has launched online Swiss Team games. The LBC will hold its first online Swiss Team game on Sunday, March 7 at 1:00 p.m.
As the number of teams must be known, registration is required for Swiss Team before the game can begin. Teams Captains must register their 4 team members no later than midnight Saturday March 6, when registrations will be closed. Team Captains are urged to register early, as only an even number of teams can play. If odd number of teams register, the last team registered will be dropped. Team Captains may register here.
Joining a Swiss Team game is quite similar to a Pairs game.
At this point, you will either invite or be invited by your partner to join the Swiss Team game. Please follow these instructions on how to join a Swiss Team game.
As this is the club's first Swiss Team game, there will only be one section. But please be reminded that while the first round is paired with players of similar match points, all subsequent winners will play winners and losers will play losers.
More Swiss Team games are planned and it is hoped that either a weekly or bi-weekly game will be added to our regular schedule.
