EBU Simultaneous Pairs 2014

Ahead of a new year of EBU-organised Simultaneous Pairs events we wanted to alert you to a number of aspects of the competitions.

New prize structure:

There is a new prize structure for 2014. Each club which hosts a heat will have the chance to win up to £1000. The winning pair of each heat will also have the chance to win up to £1000, and there are cash prizes for the overall winners of each event too.

Promotional material:

To help you promote your event we can provide a personalised poster, including your club name and the date on which you will be holding an event, so that you can advertise it to your members.

The hands:

We have received feedback that some people are concerned that hands in a Sims event are manipulated so that they are ‘weird’. This is not true. The hands you receive are exactly as dealt.

The results:

The results service which is provided is excellent, with a breakdown of all the scores and percentages along with hand records and an expert commentary which is both interesting and educational. Here is an example
