Traditionally, the tournaments of the festival include the Open Pairs, Swiss Teams and Mixed Pairs. This year we follow that tradition by beginning with the Open Pairs; the event that attracts the highest participation. It is a 3-session pairs’ event with match-point scoring across the field and it will be played from Friday 16 September through to Sunday 18 September 2022, with one session daily.
The second event is the Mixed Pairs, also a match points event. It takes place over two sessions from Monday 19 to Tuesday 20 September 2022.
The schedule of the festival is rounded up with the Teams event. This is played in a Swiss format (and appropriately selected Danish rounds) over 2 sessions, Wednesday 21 & Thursday 22 September 2022 and its completion marks the end of the festival.
Random generated computer hands will be used throughout the festival and top pairs will be seeded. Hand records will be provided at the completion of each session and top tables’ play in the team's event will be broadcasted on the Internet.
Moreover, for the Open Pairs & Mixed Pairs tournament barometer scoring will be available.
Entry fees are as follows:
|Open Pairs||100 € per person|
|Mixed Pairs||60 € per person|
|Swiss Teams||75 € per person|
Special discounts on the prices above are provided for juniors and for active members of Hellenic Bridge Federation.
