Programming Arbitrary Scores
I am writing a Bridge Scoring program for small clubs.
I have reached the stage where I am programming corrections to scores.
Having read the EBU’s White Book on this topic I am aware that for Match Point Scoring, the Arbitrary score 'Ave+' translates to 60%, 'Ave' to 50% and 'Ave'- to 40%.
My question is 60% of what? Is it:-
a) 60% of the Average Score on the Board
b) 60% of Average MPs awarded to the Board
c) 60% of the Pair’s Average Session MPs
I could find just one reference in the White Book in paragraph 8.12.13 which indicated that option (c) is the correct definition. Is this a correct interpretation?
Also am I correct in assuming that a Neuberg Correction will need to be applied to the other Results on the Board, since the Board will have been 'played' one less time than other the other Boards?
Many thanks for your help in advance.
