EBU Tournaments

What is an EBU Master Points tournament?

This is an official tournament run in partnership with the English Bridge Union.
EBU tournaments allow participants to increase their federation rank thanks to the official points (Master Points) awarded at the end of each tournament (provided that the participant is a member of the federation).

Can I take part in EBU Master Points tournaments if I am not an EBU member?

Yes, these tournaments are open to everyone.

What are the "Funbridge Points" awarded at the end of each tournament for?

What is the entry fee?

Each federation tournament costs a certain amount of Diamonds ♦️ (Funbridge virtual currency). Packs of Diamonds are available in our online shop and from the federation tournaments homescreen.

Why aren't other players' results displayed?

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.

How are the deals of a tournament dealt?

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.

Are non-played deals included in the score displayed?

The average displayed takes into account 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%.

How are Master Points awarded?

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.
