Traditionally the tournaments of the festival have been the Open Pairs, the Swiss Teams and the Mixed Pairs. This year is no exception and the week starts 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 Saturday 20 to Monday 22 August 2016, with one session every day.
The second event is the Mixed Pairs which is also a match points event, this one takes place over two sessions from Tuesday 23 to Wednesday 24 August 2016.
The schedule of the festival is rounded up with the Teams event. This is played in a Swiss format (and appropriately selected Danish rounds) in 2 sessions, Thursday 25 & Friday 26 August 2016 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 teams event will be broadcasted on the Internet.
Moreover, for the Open Pairs & Mixed Pairs tournament barometer scoring will be available.

|Open Pairs||100 € per person|
