T4 +4             1 1
T5   -17           4  
T6     -2         =5 1/2

Note: ½ win denotes a draw (margin of less than 14x0.2=2.8 IMP).

3. Awards (green points):

Session (see clause 4.2.3) - Round robin and play-offs for 3rd & 5th places: 0.012x14=0.17 per win. "Final" (play-off for the 1st place): 0.018x14=0.25 per win (50% finals premium applied). Outright (see clause 3.1.2, Table 3B): 0.71 (winner), 0.50 (2nd).

4. Masterpoint calculations (Teams listed in finishing order):

Team Session Awards Outright MP
T4 3 x 0.17 +0.25 = 0.76 0.71 1.47
T1 3.5 x 0.17 = 0.60 0.50 1.10
T2 (2+1) x 0.17 = 0.51   0.51
T5 1.5 x 0.17 = 0.26   0.26
T3 2.5 x 0.17 = 0.43   0.43
T6 3.5 x 0.17 = 0.60   0.60

Total green masterpoints allocated: 4.37 x 4 = 17.48

The masterpoints are awarded to each team member provided the team has only four members (each having played at least 40% of the boards). If a team has 5 members then each of them would receive 4/5 of the award; if a team has 6 members then each of them would receive 2/3 of the award (see clause 4.1.2).

Awards for substitutes, if any, are calculated using the team results for the session(s) in which the substitute played, deducting the points awarded from the absent player (see clause 4.4.5). Substitutes are not entitled to any portion of the final placing awards.

B.1.2 Single Session Teams Event - Grade E

1. Format: T=8 S=1

Swiss Teams event of four 8 board matches, held in a single session.

SWISS TEAMS (4 by 8 board)

Team T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 T7 T8 Total Posín Wins
T1   +7     +3 0   -7 +3   2 ½
T2 -7 -8 +9   -6     -12   1
T3   +8   +1 -11   +4   +2   2 ½
T4   -9 -1       +5 -9 -14   1 ½
T5 -3   +11     +12   -5 +15 2 2
T6 0 +6     -12   +17   +11 3 2 ½
T7     -4 -5   -17   +4 -22   1
T8 +7     +9 +5   -4   +17 1 3

For the above Swiss Teams event the Grade E award for each match is 0.008x8, i.e. 0.06 MP per match. The members of each team are entitled to the following credits (there are no final placing points for single session events).

Team Session Awards
T1 2.5 x 0.06= 0.15
T2 1 x 0.06 = 0.06
T3 2.5 x 0.06= 0.15
T4 1.5 x 0.06= 0.09
T5 2 x 0.06 = 0.12
T6 2.5 x 0.06= 0.15
T7 1 x 0.06 = 0.06
T8 3 x 0.06 = 0.18

If the competition had been a single session Grade E event with matches of less than 5 boards duration then awards would be given to the top three teams using Table 2A, i.e. the first team would receive 0.32 MP per player, whilst the second team would receive 0.22 per player, and the third team would receive 0.16 per player.

 

B.2 CLUB PAIRS TOURNAMENT - GRADE E

For this example, 14 pairs have played in a two session event, playing a Mitchell movement in the first session, and a Howell movement in the second. Masterpoints have been awarded at the Grade E (Club green point session) rate of 0.03 times the number of tables for the Mitchell, and 0.06 times the number of tables for the Howell. The Mitchell session awards are shown in Table 1B, using T=7.

Pair 7 57.14 0.21 1st Pair 14 51.19 0.05 =3rd

Masterpoints have been given to the top three pairs in each direction, being half the number of competing pairs, rounded down. The winners in each direction have received 0.03T, the runners-up 0.7 x 0.03T, and the third place-getters 0.5 x 0.03T. All of these awards have been rounded. The tie for second place in the North-South scores has resulted in the two pairs sharing the second and third place awards. The tie for third has resulted in the two pairs sharing the third place points.
