As these Robot tournaments gather momentum, with more and more players participating, not only is it possible to display new ranking lists – month by month, year by year, even all time, but we are also able to announce some really exciting prizes !
At the end of 2019 the leading three players in the 2019 overall ranking, determined on their best results achieved over a minimum of 100 tournaments will be invited to participate in the 2020 World Championships with a partner of their choice
These three players will receive free entry to whichever of the four National Pairs Championships** they wish to participate in – the National Open, Women’s, Seniors or Mixed Pairs plus bed and breakfast accommodation in a twin/double room for themselves and their partner for the duration of the Pairs Championship.
And as if that isn’t enough, there will be competitions with prizes for the best play, bidding and defence presented to the player concerned and also to the Journalist reporting the hand and publishing it in the IPBA Bulletin or other publication – the player should send the details about the bidding, play and defence to the journalist of his choice, noting the hand number, the day of the tournament and whether it was MPs or IMPs. Look on the FunBridge pages where there will be more information published shortly to explain how best to report a hand to a journalist.
