Swedish Championship Robot Individual at Funbridge
The Swedish Bridge Federation has started up play at Funbridge 2020-03-01, Hopefully they will arrange the Championship in 2020 or 21 then a private arrangement will not be necessary.
Inspired by the NABC Robot Individual a Swedish Championship (MP) in Robot Individual was arranged on Funbridge by the webbmaster on this site. It was a private arrangement with no involvement of the Swedish Bridge Federation. As the Swedish Bridge Federation is not present on FunBridge the only way was to arrange the tournament was to do it privately. But It also limits the rewards, no master points and no price money.
The first championship (MP) was held in June 2019. It consisted of a 40 board qualifying session and a 40 board final. 50 procent went to the final. The tournament was free of charge and the player on the first to the third place received a diploma and digital flowers! It was the first national championship arranged on Funbridge.
In October a second Championship (IMP) was the arranged that was a bit different. A Class-B Championship was added. It was only for players on level 6-11 and new on Funbridge. The idea was to give also less experienced player a chance to win a Championship. It was a direct final with 40 boards. To give players, that not advanced to final, a chance to play there was also a B-Final.
As In june the competitions was without masterpoints and price money, but still free of charge. The players on the first to the third place received a diploma in all three competitions. In addition they now also received a plaque in the Class A-Final and Class-B Final
Winner in the Class A-Final was Jonathan Johansson from Luleå.
Winner in the Class B-Final was Anders Carlsson from Lessebo.
In 2020, two competitions were organized, MP and IMP, but with a different structure. A direct final with 3 x 24 boards. The competition was stratified at three levels A-C, with prizes for players in position 1-3.
