As fairly old club members happy to play E/W we have soldiered on taking our occasional master points among other E/Ws. Of late, a move (we think at the instigation of the EBU) has been to amalgamate the N/S and E/W scores by ‘arrow switching’. The effect, decried by fellow E/Ws, seems to ensure that N/S pairs now cream off all master points leaving all E/W pairs to fill in the tail end positions. Added to this, also we think as a result of on EBU edict, clubs are insisting on switching polarities at random to the irritation of those who like to like to play E/W. As a result, pleasant evening duplicate sessions have become less so.
Are we in a minority who feel this?
