NATURE OF CHAMPIONSHIPS Each series consists of a complete round robin with teams playing against all other teams in the same series.

The 20 board matches will be played straight through without a break, the 32 board matches will be played in two segments (see 6.1.5). The results of the matches are expressed in victory points and at the completion of the round robin the team in each series with the greatest number of victory points is the winner of that series (and so on for the other rankings).

RULES FOR RUNNING THE MATCHES 6.1 Composition and seating of teams Designation of teams The team mentioned first in the schedule of matches printed in the program is designated as the Home Team. Its opponent is the Away Team Line up procedure for 20 board matches: The line ups must be submitted electronically. Both captains submit their line up without knowing the line up of their opponents. Line ups for each match will be displayed on the display screens designated for this, after both teams have submitted their line ups. Line ups for a round have to be submitted within 15 minutes after the previous round has ended. For the first round the details will be announced at the captains meeting. Teams who infringe this regulation may be subject to VP penalties according to this scale: 1st occasion a written warning 2nd occasion 0.5 VP penalty. Subsequently 1 VP penalty for each occasion Line up procedure for 32 board matches: The line ups must be submitted electronically, and will be displayed on the display screens designated for this. For the first match the captain of the Away team must submit the line up of the team for the first segment at least one hour before the starting time, and the captain of the home team is allowed an additional 10 minutes. For subsequent matches the Away team line up for the first segment must be submitted within 15 minutes after the previous round has ended. The captain of the home team is allowed an additional 5 minutes. For the second segment of each match the Home team line up must be submitted within 15 minutes after the end of the first segment round. The captain of the away team is allowed an additional 5 minutes. Teams who infringe this regulation will be subject to VP penalties according to this scale: 1st occasion a written warning 2nd occasion 1 VP penalty; subsequently 1 VP penalty for each occasion.
7 6.1.4 Seating of Teams 20 boards The teams meet according to the schedule printed in the program. The Home Team sits throughout in the N/S position in the Open Room and in the E/W position in the Closed Room Seating of Teams 32 boards a. The teams meet according to the schedule printed in the program. The Home Team sits throughout in the N/S position in the Open Room and in the E/W position in the Closed Room The Home Team has the right for the first segment of the match to nominate its players after the Away Team has nominated theirs. c. When the Home Team has nominated its players for the second segment, the Away Team will nominate its players. d. No change other than those referred to above may be made unless authorized by the Tournament Director in charge. Such permission will only be given in case of illness or in exceptional circumstances. 6.2 Time procedure and penalties for slow play Start of the round At the beginning of each round the Tournament Director on duty will announce the time by which the round must be completed. For a twenty board match this will be 2 hours and 50 minutes, and for a 16 board match or segment this will be 2 hours 20 minutes. The period allowed is calculated from the commencement of the period of play and includes the time for system explanation and scoring procedure. Play in the Open Room between two opposing teams may start only when the players of the same teams are seated in the Closed Room. Any team that is not seated and ready to play at the start of a period of play will be fined 1 VP and for each completed period of 5 minutes thereafter a further 1VP. Players are requested to be seated 5 minutes before the scheduled start of play. Any team not seated within half an hour after starting time by its own fault forfeits the match and receives zero Victory Points. For the score of the opposing team see Section If any team has been fined for being late at the commencement of a round the fines for slow play in the same round will be based on the time at which all players were seated at the table and ready to play End of the period of play. a) If at the end of the allocated time play has not been completed fines will be imposed as follows: from 0 to 5 minutes late: a fine of 1 VP will be imposed on the table and shared 0.5 VP to each team if they are considered to bear equal responsibility for overrunning. from 5 to 10 minutes late: 2 VPs imposed on the table, shared likewise equally 1 VP each from 10 to 15 minutes late: 4 VPs likewise from 15 to 20 minutes late: 6 VPs likewise from 20 to 25 minutes late: 10 VPs likewise. for delays of more than 25 minutes the Appeals Committee may impose a more severe penalty.
8 b) If a pair should claim that the responsibility for the slow play is with their opponents, they will do so by calling the Tournament Director who will take any corrective measures that are necessary in his opinion, including, at his discretion, the designation of a monitor at the table for as long as he considers desirable. The Tournament Director will normally issue warnings when teams are in danger of penalties for slow play, but an absence of warning does not diminish the responsibility of the players or their liability to be fined. If the two sides at the table are not considered to bear equal responsibility for the late finish the prescribed penalty in (a) will be divided between the two teams proportionately to the extent to which each side is deemed to have contributed to the overrun. c) It is a serious breach of propriety deliberately to break a Law or Rule even if one is willing to accept the prescribed penalty. Accordingly, over and above the prescribed penalties, the Tournament Director may impose an additional penalty in cases where he is of the opinion that players are indulging deliberately in unnecessarily slow play. The following regulations will be observed in putting this rule into effect: i) No such penalty will be awarded unless the Tournament Director has given previous verbal warning to the players concerned of his intention to invoke this rule. ii) Such a penalty may be imposed only in respect of continued delay in the same session of play as that in which a verbal warning has been given. iii) The penalty may, in the discretion of the Tournament Director, be imposed on one only or on both of the teams involved in the match in which such a delay occurs, or, at his discretion, a larger penalty may be imposed on one team than upon the other to reflect the measure of each team s responsibility for the occurrence Penalty warning Except for a penalty under c above all penalties for violations of time procedure and slow play are mandatory and require no previous warning to the players that penalties will be applied. 6.3 General rules during play Language All players are reminded that the official language of the Championships is English and during a match the players are expected to converse in this language only unless both teams agree to speak another language Non playing players Non playing players of a team are not allowed to watch their team mates playing (except in the Viewgraph theatre) Finish of play At each table when play has finished the players should agree the scores and then leave the Room (Open or Closed) as quickly as possible. They may not watch play at other tables.
9 6.3.4 Leaving the table and playing rooms No player may leave the table during a match unless authorized by the Tournament Director. If any player leaves the table during a match without permission of the Tournament Director, that player s team will be fined 2 VPs Scoring at the table Scoring at the table is done by the use of Bridgemates Use of the systems (convention) card Players may only look at their own system as Law 40B2(b) allows. (The Laws allow the declaring side, only, to look at its own system card during the Correction/ Clarification Period see Law 22B1. This assists the correction of any misexplanation during the auction.) Players may look at the system of their opponents at any time during the bidding but during the play only when it is their turn to play. In accordance with the EBL Systems Policy players may consult their written defences to the Multi End of rounds, results IMP scale The difference in the total point scores on each board is to be converted to International Match Points ( IMPs ), and the results of each match shall be converted into Victory Points in accordance with the new WBF IMP/VP scales Scoring of results: Match results will be available from the organization at the end of the round. No action is required by the teams Control of results: If a team does not agree with the posted result of their match, they should inform the Tournament Director on duty Effect of penalty points In no case will a VP penalty imposed under these Rules benefit the score of the nonoffending side Protest time In respect of scores the protest time of all matches played in a day ends at the starting time of the first match on the day following, and in respect of the final day s play two hours after the official finishing time of the final match. The protest time concerning rulings by the TD ends 30 minutes after the round.
10 6.4.6 Official results If at the end of protest time no protest has been lodged, the posted result shall become the official result of the match with the exception of: a) any adjustment arising from the hearing of an appeal; b) adjustment in respect of any fines to which either team is liable; c) completion of scores following the replay of one or more boards where such a replay has been ordered. An official result may be altered only by written notice from the Head Tournament Director, from the Tournament Committee, or from the Tournament Appeals Committee Publication of decisions All decisions involving play, penalties, deals, infringement of the Rules, etc., will be posted in in a designated location or electronically through the Championship Website. However, the fact that a penalty has not yet been posted and that the attention of the players or captains has not yet been drawn to it does not nullify the penalty. 6.5 Byes, Ranking and Ties Byes In the event of a team having a bye in any session it will receive 13 VPs. A team must play against each other team against which it is drawn. A team will score zero if, by its own fault, it is not able to play against another team. Its opponents will receive the best score between: a) 13 VPs b) That team s average c) The average score obtained by all the other opponents against the team at fault Ranking The teams will be ranked according to the total number of VPs each gains in the Championship Ties A tie between two teams will be broken in accordance with the result of the match between those two teams. Where that match has resulted in a tie in VPs, any difference in IMPs will decide. If there should still be a tie, then the IMP quotient of all matches will be taken into consideration to break the tie. Where more than two teams have the same number of VPs the tie will be decided by the result of the matches between those teams. If one of the teams has defeated all the other teams involved, it will be ranked ahead of the others regardless of the number of VPs obtained. The other tied teams will be ranked according to the VPs obtained in the matches between them. If a further tie should still exist then the IMP quotient of all matches will be taken into consideration to break the tie.
11 7. REGULATIONS SUPPLEMENTING THE LAWS The use of bidding boxes, screens and bridgemates is mandatory throughout. The EBL Bidding Boxes, Bridgemates and Screen Regulations apply. See 8. NON PLAYING CAPTAINS In the Closed Room, when and if allowed, a non playing captain has no rights and must not communicate with anyone at the table nor draw attention to any irregularity. A matter that may require the Director s attention may be raised with the players when meeting them after the session and, if desired, protested to the Director within 30 minutes of conclusion of the match. 9. APPEALS In reference to sections of EBL:s General Conditions of Contest, and pursuant to Laws 81B2(k) and 93C3(b), the appeals procedure at these Championships will be different. Instead of a classic Appeals Committee hearing, appeals will be heard by a Reviewer appointed by the EBL Appeals Committee. The Reviewer will not engage in a re evaluation of facts already known to the Tournament Directors at the time of their ruling. The review will be limited to (1) verifying that correct procedures and laws were followed, and/or (2) judging whether new facts presented may reasonably have affected the original ruling. An appeal lodged without new facts, or with no reasonable claim of a flaw in procedures or application of the Laws, will be considered without merit. The detailed procedure for lodging appeals will be published at the latest in the first Daily Bulletin. 10. TOURNAMENT DIRECTORS General duties of Tournament Directors The Tournament Directors responsibilities are in the main covered by Law 81. All Tournament Directors will follow the WBF Code of Practice wherever its recommendations are relevant. A Co Chief Tournament Director may act with the powers of and in place of the Chief Tournament Director in any matter.

Tournament Directors are required to complete a form for each round when there are late starts, slow play or any other incidents.
