This is an official tournament organised with a **national bridge federation**.

A federation tournament allows participants to increase their federation rank thanks to the**official points** awarded at the end of the tournament (provided that the participant is a member of the partner federation).

A federation tournament allows participants to increase their federation rank thanks to the

Yes, these tournaments are open to everyone.

For each federation tournament played, you earn Funbridge Points on top of those awarded by the federation.

They allow you to join the**Funbridge Points rankings**. It is perfect to see how you compare to the whole community of Funbridge players.

This is a tournament allowing you to earn **Funbridge Points only**.

To take part in these tournaments, you must have **enough credits for the given federation**. To buy credits, go to the home screen of a federation tournament and click the button "**Purchase tournaments**" or go to our online shop.

At the end of the deal, players have only access to their own result on the deal, i.e. contract played, result, score and rank.

Other players' results are displayed only when the tournament is over.

Other players' results are displayed only when the tournament is over.

The number of deals generated for a tournament is higher than the number of deals played, so that all players won't play the same deals and not in the same order.

The average displayed takes into account the results on deals played. Only played deals are taken into account. Any non-played deal at the end of the tournament will get a score of 0%.

##### Funbridge Points

##### Expert Points (FFB)

- T = number of Expert Points to award
- BV = variable coefficient detailed below
- N = number of players
- K is a multiplier set so that the sum of the points awarded is equal to the overall number of points.
- a=3/2, which allows to award Expert Points to two thirds of the participants.
- r is the rank reached by the player.
- Up to 50 players: the m exponent is equal to 1/2.
- Beyond 50 players: m=1/2 - L/60 with L=Napierian logarithm (N/4).
##### Green Points (FSB)

- K is a multiplier set so that the sum of the points awarded is equal to the overall number of points.
- a=2, which allows to award Green Points to half of the participants.
- r is the rank reached by the player.
- Up to 50 players: the m exponent is equal to 1/1.9.
- Beyond 50 players: m=1/1.9 - L/60 with L=Napierian logarithm (N/4).
##### Master Points (EBU)

##### Masterpoints (NBF)

- The winner wins a number of points equal to 1.5 times the number of participants.
- The next players win the number of points earned by the player preceding them multiplied by: The minimum between (player's rank / (player's rank + 1)) and (maximum between 2/3 and exp( (log (4/preceding player's points)) / ((number of players / 3) - player's rank + 1)).
- At the end of the tournament, all points are divided by two and rounded up.
##### Masterpoints (TBF)

##### Robots Bridge Points (WBF)

They are calculated as follows:

Points earned = 2 x (Number of participants + 1 - Rank) / log10(Rank +2)

Points earned = 2 x (Number of participants + 1 - Rank) / log10(Rank +2)

The awarding of Expert Points for a tournament is calculated based on the following formula:

T = BV x N x 5/18

Where:

With X=100 (coefficient for afternoon tournaments sanctioned by the FFB).

The number of points awarded to each player is calculated based on the following formula:

A(r)=K x ((N + a) / r - a)^m (Please note that "m" is an exponent and means "to the power m") where:

T = BV x N x 5/18

Where:

If N<=25 | BV=X |

If 25>N<=50 | BV=8N/5 + X - 40 |

If 50>N<100 | BV=2 N/5 + X + 20 |

If N>=100 | BV=X + 60 |

With X=100 (coefficient for afternoon tournaments sanctioned by the FFB).

The number of points awarded to each player is calculated based on the following formula:

A(r)=K x ((N + a) / r - a)^m (Please note that "m" is an exponent and means "to the power m") where:

The number of Green Points awarded at the end of a tournament is equal to twice the number of players in the tournament.

The number of points awarded to each player is calculated based on the following formula:

A(r)=K x ((N + a) / r - a)^m (Please note that "m" is an exponent and means "to the power m") where:

The number of points awarded to each player is calculated based on the following formula:

A(r)=K x ((N + a) / r - a)^m (Please note that "m" is an exponent and means "to the power m") where:

Master points are awarded to the top 1/3 of players, rounded up.

Each player is awarded 3*(n-p+1) points, where:

n=number of awards

p=place of player

Exception: the lowest possible award is 6, so the lowest place receiving an award will usually get 6 (rather than 3).

When places are tied, Master Points are shared but rounded up to the nearest 3.

Example for 34 players: 12 players receive Master Points.

Each player is awarded 3*(n-p+1) points, where:

n=number of awards

p=place of player

Place | Award | |

1 | 36 | |

2 | 33 | |

3= | 30 | Two shared awards rounded up |

3= | 30 | |

5 | 24 | |

6= | 18 | |

6= | 18 | Three shared awards: each get the average of their awards |

6= | 18 | |

9 | 12 | |

10 | 9 | |

11 | 6 | |

12 | 6 | Last position gets 6 rather than 3 |

Masterpoints are awarded based on the following principle agreed by the NBF:

Masterpoints are awarded by the TBF directly. Please get in touch with the federation to find out more about the calculation method used.

1^{st} place: 1,500 WRBP (maximum)

2^{nd} place: 80% of maximum

3^{rd} place: 70% of maximum

4^{th} place: 60% of maximum

5^{th} – 19^{th} place: 55% of maximum

20^{th} – 39^{th} place: 50% of maximum

40^{th} – 59^{th} place: 45% of maximum

60^{th} – 79^{th} place: 40% of maximum

80^{th} – 99^{th} place: 35% of maximum

100^{th} – 119^{th} place: 30% of maximum

120^{th} – 139^{th} place: 25% of maximum

140^{th} – 159^{th} place: 20% of maximum

160^{th} – 179^{th} place: 15% of maximum

180^{th} – 200^{th} place: 10% of maximum

Please note that only 50% of participants will earn points. For instance, if there are 60 participants, only the top 30 players will earn WRBP according to the point scale above.
