Cambs & Hunts County Knockout 2013-14

This is a Level 4 convention event.

This year we have the draw online in diagram form. Thanks to Peter Jackson for this suggestion. The higher of each pair of teams is the home team.

Please send results by email to, or by post using the results form to Chris Jagger, 14 St Barnabas Court, Cambridge, CB1 2BZ.  Either way, please let me know the names of those who actually played the match, and the margin in IMPs. Please also notify your potential opponents for the next round.

Teams eliminated in their first match are automatically entered for the Plate at no additional charge, unless they specify otherwise when the team entry is made or on their first result sheet.

All green points will be submitted online to the EBU after the final has been played. The awards are:

  • ROUND 0: 0.5 green
  • ROUND 1: 0.75 green
  • QUARTER-FINALS: 1.25 green
  • SEMI-FINALS: 1.75 green
  • FINAL 2.5 green

    In each match, the first named team is at home. An undergraduate team drawn away who would have difficulty in reaching the away venue has the option of requesting that the match be played in Cambridge (and to provide a venue if necessary).

    The home team is responsible for organising a suitable venue (and bearing any costs), preferably consisting of two separate playing rooms, and for providing equipment (tables, boards, bidding boxes and score cards) and refreshments (tea/coffee and biscuits would suffice).

    Team captains should contact each other as soon as possible after the draw has been made. If a match has not been fixed up within 10 days of the draw being made the organiser should be notified. If team captains are unable to agree on a date, the Tournament Organiser should be informed. He may permit a later date agreeable to both captains. Failing that, matches must be played at Cambridge Bridge Club in the week following the latest specified date for the round. NOTE that this may prove difficult if the date coincides with a special Cambridge Club event. Please check with the Cambridge Club Secretary before arranging matches there. A team failing to attend will be eliminated by default.

    Rounds up to and including the semi-final will be 24 boards, or 32 if both captains agree. The final will be of 32 boards, or 48 if both captains agree. If the scores are level at the end of a match, 4 extra boards must be played playing straight through against one opposing pair. If the scores are still level, change opponents and play further boards, repeating this process until the tie is broken.

    Predealt boards may be used if both teams agree beforehand.

    Teams may contain up to 6 players, only 4 of whom may play in any one match. Additional players, up to the maximum, may be added at any time but must be registered with the Tournament Organiser before playing in a match.
