The Australian Interstate Teams is to be held online on the RealBridge
platform. The dates are unchanged from the originally rescheduled days.
- Qualifying: Monday to Thursday, November 8-11
- Final: Thursday to Friday, November 11-12.
The format will be unchanged except that matches in the Qualifying will
be over 12 boards instead of 16. The reason for this is that time
differences across the country mean that there is a shorter period
available each day when it would be reasonable to expect competitors to
be able to play.
The event will be played on the RealBridge online platform using Screens
Mode. Every player must use a device with audio-visual capabilities, and
may only disconnect the camera during a match after obtaining permission
from the Director. Further information on RealBridge and Screens Mode
will be provided in due course. RealBridge practice sessions will be
made available to players in the weeks leading up to the event.
There is no requirement for States to organise centralised supervision
PQPs will be allocated in applicable events at a rate of one half of the original awards.
