Green Points

Although there is plenty of information in the EBUScore manual about setting up events etc, I can't see much about masterpoints.

I have run two sessions of a county GP event final (code 60) which, I think should have 3.5 GP as the top prize and 14 awards (TOE = 27, current event = 15 pairs). Whilst I can combine them into a single event afterwards, when creating the file to send up to the EBU I get a subscript out of range message (and a single pair gets some local points).

How should I set the Masterpoints up to avoid this error? Or whatever...


  • Have you used the special scales tab in EBU Score?

  • Not much literature on them! I tried using the EBU Scale GP rank award filling in just Strat A

    Top: 3.5 (I think that is right for TOE of 27)
    Lowest: 0.25
    Percent of field - 93.33% (to get 14 pairs awarded GP)

    Which generates awards from 1 to 14 (14 being half of TOE rounded up)

    If this is correct do I fill in the two sessions or just the combined session?

    And if I set this, do I ignore the default - or set it to

    County 1 day GP Final
    D Regional
    flags unchecked
    Total original tables 14 (we had 27 entries for the semi finals)
    Total boards played - left as Unused as everyone played the same number as scheduled (45)

    (Type of event set to 60)

    Enter that in the combined session. Set the scale as EBU GP Scale, or perhaps Special Scale. That should be all you need to do. Generate a ranking list with master points to check that it seems correct.

  • Ok that worked - two sessions now appear - one is the green point allocation the other is the result - but it says "boards unknown"

    Do I upload the individual sessions as well?

  • Two sessions appear where?

  • On MyEBU for NOE - one seems to be the allocation of green points, the other shows the percentages.

  • It may be clear to the scorer and the players to upload the two sessions separately (created from the combined event) and create a 'Pianola results only' upload, this will show the overall results and master points (with code 02)
