The EBU has started running its own pairs tournaments on Bridge Base Online - Wednesdays and Sundays at 4pm and midnight UK time. Information can be found on its website.
Fellow blogger, Robin Barker, is one of the EBU Tournament Directors involved and hopefully will be reporting interesting incidents, notwithstanding his recent election to the EBU Laws and Ethics Committee.
A quick glance at the tournament results suggest only four and five tables for the first two tournaments. Of course it is very early days and they are competing with the multitude of long-established ACBL tournaments, but perhaps not the start that they would have been looking for.
What is interesting to me is that both the ACBL and EBU are awarding masterpoints for these online tournaments. This suggests that they are very happy that cheating will not be rife or, if it is, then they will be able to catch the cheats. The EBU describes its position on the information page and includes a link to an article written by BBO's Fred Gitelman for the ACBL magazine on the topic.
I'm sure that the SBU will be watching with interest. My understanding is that any EBU masterpoints earned will not be transferable to Scotland, as most others are, as the tournaments are too short (16 boards). I expect that this will be re-examined if there are significant complaints.
