TBIB Restricted Pairs Competition Returns for 2019/20
We are delighted to advise that TBIB will once again be sponsoring Victorian bridge. The highly successful TBIB Insurance Restricted Pairs Prize is back, bigger and even better, in association with eligible Swiss Pairs events at Congresses held under the auspices of the VBA. This year’s competition features a first and second prize at each Congress for restricted pairs who have entered the day’s competition (with a combined prize value of $200) and there will be two winning pairs drawn from all entries over the season at the end of the competition, winning free entry into the Restricted Pairs event of their choice at the Victor Champion Cup in June.
The competition runs from the Sunbury Congress on October 27 until the end of April 2020, the draw for the winners occurring in May. The official launch of the competition will be at Waverley Bridge Club on Saturday November 2nd.
As with last year, the competition will be exclusively for Restricted Pairs, i.e. pairs where neither player has more than 300 master points, as per the normal criteria of the ABF regarding eligibility for the Restricted category as at the date of the Congress.
Entry to the TBIB competition at each eligible Congress will be exclusively via a printed entry card, which shall be placed on all tables prior to round one where restricted pairs will be seated.
Pairs who wish to enter the competition shall complete the form before the conclusion of round one and the forms shall be collected. At the end of the event, the best two restricted pairs to have entered the competition shall receive the cash prizes. All entries from the season go into the final draw.
We look forward to another wonderful TBIB competition in 2019/20.
The VBA Council wishes to express its appreciation to TBIB for this wonderful support.
