Metropolitan Cup, 7th September

Scoring queries have been raised. These will be investigated.

Provisional ranking tables for each of the flights are now available:

A Flight B Flight C Flight

Teams of 12 Scorecards showing the IMP conversions:

A Flight B Flight C Flight

Player Rankings (X-IMPs) are here:

A Flight B Flight C Flight

Underlying travellers for each flight are here:

A Flight B Flight C Flight

IMP and VP Scales

The scoring methodology used is a recommended EBU approach of summing scores across all 6 pairs, and converting to IMPs using a modified IMP table (basic table x √3), before converting to VPs using the regular Teams of 4 scale for the number of boards involved. See the L&E Committee Minutes of September 2012 for more details.

If you have already entered (or been entered by your club) and DO NOT NOW INTEND TO PLAY, then please contact Jill Cook to remove your entry from the list so others can enter.
