Upgraded Games

January is Junior Fund month, so almost all games will be upgraded as Junior Fund games, which pay black points at 63.6% of what a sectional tournament would pay! For high numbers of tables, this is about double what an un-upgraded club masterpoint game would pay. For fewer tables the benefit is greater. For 3 tables, a Junior Fund game pays about 6 times as much as a club masterpoint game.

Thre will be three games that are not Junior Fund:

Day Date Time Game Type
Sunday 9 6:00 Grand National Teams
Tuesday 9 10:30 Inter-Club Championship
Sunday 28 6:00 Grand National Teams

Inter-club championships pay the same as Junior Fund; and GNT games pay half red and black at FULL sectional rating (instead of 2/3).
