http://www.bridgebase.pl/index2.php

We would like to invite You all to teams league.

COMPOSITIONS OF LEAGUE TEAMS.  The League shall be bracketed into divisions by a random draw of not less than 6 nor more than 10 teams per division. Altough teams with GOLD STAR members shall be seated teams and divided evenly among the top divisions. The number of brackets will depend on the number of teams who enroll. Each team in a division shall play each other team in that division once.  Teams may consist of 4 to 10. In future events old teams will be sorted into the brackets based on their past year performance.

LINEUP CHANGES. No player shall be a member of or play on more than one team without expressed consent of GAMING OFFICIAL DIRECTOR or GOD for short.

LENGTH OF EVENT:  Each team will be 9 weeks in which to play all of its matches. It is anticipated that the minimum speed of play will be at least one match per week, although you could play three matches in single day if that fiits your schedule. The League competition shall take place within the period of FILL IN DATES.

PLAYOFF. At the end of the SEASON, a knockout playoff will be held to determine the overall winner of each level. If there are only two divisions at the same level, then the top two teams from each division will advance. If there are three divisions, the two highest scoring teams get a first round bye and the other four teams participate in a knockout match. If four or more divisions exist, only the top teams advance to the knockouts.
In the event of a tie for a playoff or flight qualifying position, the tiebreakers (in order) are: A) wins/loses in head-to-head competition during the current season B) total IMPs in head-to-head competition during the current season. C) coin flip

LENGTH OF MATCHES:  Matches will be of 24 boards played in two halves or 12 board each with no undo's, scored separately, with compulsory change of opponents after 12 boards (same EW Pair can not play against same NS pair).  The two 12 board matches shall be scored in IMPs and converted to Victory Points, which will calculated from the IMP score by GOD using the table found at http://www.bridgebase.pl/article.php?art_id=24

CAPTAIN'S RESPONSIBILITIES:  These include (a) arranging as early as practical with the other Captains the date and starting time of all matches; (b) agreement prior to start of play upon the minutes of lateness, if any; (c) perform all official team communication with GOD, including reporting of scores (in VP and IMPs) providing movies of the match, appeals, claims of forfeit, requests for modification of team membership or captaincy, and proper advance notice of all matches-dates and official starting time.

LINEUP PROCEDURES:  The Captain of the seeded team (lower number on the list) will have the choice of opposing pairs for the first half.  The team which is behind at the end of the first half will have the choice of opposing pairs for the second match. Note a four man team must rotate pair as same pairs are not allowed to play against each other. Except for emergencies or impossible connection, no change of players will be permitted during the 12-board half. If a non-playing team member is kibitizing a 12 board session, he will not be allowed to substitute for any team member who becomes disconnect from BBO gaming site.

TARDINESS:  Arriving late to a match is a discourtesy to your teammates and opponents.  The section below describes the penalties for lateness. These penalties may be appealed to the coordinator but are not subject to discussion by the participants. Such discussion can only further delay the match and cause increased penalties.  The only appropriate discussion of tardiness is that the team captains should agree on the time that each team was prepared to begin play.

DEFINITION OF STARTING TIME:  The starting time of a match is defined as either the scheduled starting time or the time at which four members of one team are ready to begin play, whichever is later.

LATENESS PENALTIES:  A penalty of three IMPs per each five minutes or fraction thereof after the first ten minutes of lateness with a max of 18 IMPs will be assessed against the late-arriving team. A team may appeal to the coordinator that the penalty be reduced because of extenuating conditions.

FORFEITURE:  If a team is over 60 minutes late, the opposing Captain may request a win by forfeit. An attempt shall be made to reschedule the matches in which case the offending team will be assessed an 18 IMP late penalty for the match.

SLOW PLAY:  A match is expected to be played at the rate of 7 1/2 minutes per board or faster, or one hour and 30 minutes per 12 boards.  Complaints of slow play may be made to the director during the match or to GOD in writing when reporting the scores. No hand shall be started 4 hours after the official start time for the match without specific agreement by both captains (or acting captains should the captain not be available) that the match shall run long.

SUBSTITUTES:  Substitutes can be used to fill out a table to allow play. A substitute may not be a member of another team in the same league. If a substitute plays twice for one team, he becomes a member of that team and can no longer substitute on other teams.

FORFEITS:  The intent of GOD to hold matches, and every effort will be made to have a match played rather than declared a forfeit.  GOD expects full cooperation from all teams in accomplishment of this aim.
DISOLUTION OF A TEAM. On the event a team is scatched from a division during play, or withdraw during a match, the non-offending team shall be credited with a win and, at the end of the season, be credited with a VP score for the forfeiture being the highest of (a) the average VPs scored by the non-offending side (b) the average VPs conceded by the offending side and (c) 22 VPs. Generally, when a side requests a fixture to be postponed owing to very bad weather or for mutual convenience, a new fixture date shall be arranged. The fact that a side is unable to raise its strongest team for a fixture would not justify a postponement and if it is not possible to complete a match by the end of the season rule 8 shall apply.
Play and procedure shall be governed by the latest (1997) edition of the -Laws of Duplicate Bridge- and such penalties as are laid down in these Laws shall be exacted. The home club shall provide a Director for each fixture. The Director may be a team member. Any complaint as to the decisions or conduct of a Director shall be made to the Secretary.
GOD shall keep accurate records of the result and post them on WEBPAGE.

CONVENTIONS:  Best might be anything goes, so no arguments over what is being played). However, all conventions not on PREAPPROVED LIST must be pre-alerted and defenses provided in writing to GOD for posting on WEBPAGE.  Special carding agreements and treatments must be pre-alerted (UDCA. O/E. etc).

CONVENTION CARDS ARE OBLIGATORY, and are to be filled out completely. If you believe your opponents have not made a good faith effort to completely fill out their convention card, save it and forward it to GOD. If after GOD reviews the convention card, he may request the players involved to elaborate more fully. Failure to do results in expulsion of the offending pair.

DIVISION CHANGES: At the end of each season, the top two teams in each division (other than Division One) shall be promoted and the bottom two teams in each division (other than the lowest division) shall be demoted one division. Further teams may be promoted and/or demoted at the discretion of GOD to ensure that the divisions for the following season shall contain an equal number of teams. If at the end of the season two or more teams are tied (in terms of VPs) for top or bottom place in any division, the tie shall be split first by considering the aggregate VPs scored by each team in its matches against the other team(s) involved in the tie and, if that does not split the tie, then by considering the total IMPs scored by each team in all its matches in that season.

RULES OF CONDUCT: The normal Bridge Base Online rules of conduct applies through out the event.
