RESULTS    1   2   3   4   5   6   7a  7b

15th June 2020

The league season will officially end at midnight Saturday 11th July

Captains are encouraged to play any remaining matches online before that date,
but any matches not reported by then will be determined by the Mould formula, used in previous
years to determine scores for matches were one team defaulted. In this case each team will get:

15 +/- (difference in averages between the two teams) subject to a maximum of 30 and a minimum of 0


Examples

Team A has average 22 and team B has average 17. 22-17 is 5,
so Team A gets 20 VPs (15+5) and team B gets 10 VPs (15-5)

C has average 11 and Team D has average 14. 14-11 is 3,
so Team C gets 12 VPs (15-3) and Team D gets 18 VPs (15+3)

Team E has average 23 and Team F has average 6. 23-6 is 17 which is
beyond the maximum, so Team E gets 30 VPs and Team F gets 0 VPs

Once all remaining matches have been decided by this formula, then
the winners of each league and promotions and relegations will be known

When we are able to run the next MCBA League face to face
the divisions will be determined using these final results

Obviously at this time it is impossible to tell when face to face
bridge will restart and the next league will be able to run.

In the meantime we will be running a new Online Bridge League from 16th July
