Handicapped Swiss Teams
Thursdays, September 5, 12, 19, & 26, at 6:30pm

Get the edge you need to compete with the experts and level the playing field! It doesn't matter whether you're an expert or a beginner - the handicap ensures that everyone has a chance to win. A masterpoint based handicap is added to your score for each match. 

How It Works 
  • Recruit a team of four of any level of players, or let us get you one.
  • First round match assignments are made randomly.
  • During the first round, your score is adjusted by an IMP handicap based upon your masterpoint holding.
  • The match winner is determined by the score after the handicap has been added in.
  • Each successive round is matched by ACBL score and the handicap is again calculated and added to determine the winner.
  • Handicapping "levels the playing field" of the 2 teams.
