Re: organising a two table home tournament ( 23:11:52 SunJun 16 2002 ) |
Good answers - but there is one point. If you are not careful, in either the individual or the pair game, you will finish up with people scoring the reverse of each other at the other table. For example, if at table one A beats B by 13 imps then at table one D beats C by 13 imps!
The way to avoid this is at one table only [the one with the stationary pair or player] to "arrow-switch" half the boards. This means that the stationary pair/player plays half the boards as North-South, half as East-West. You will find this a big improvement.
While VPs are acceptable in such a match [win-loss is not much fun at home] I would not bother: play straight imps.
