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.
