Week 0170 : 25th September 2023



A simple pairs movement in which the N/S pairs remain stationary, the E/W pairs move to the next higher table and the boards to the next lower table after each round. If there is an even number of tables, the middle round is a ‘skip’ round, with boards moving as normal but E/W pairs moving up two tables.

Alternatively, a ‘relay’ movement uses the first and last tables sharing boards and a relay set of boards between the middle tables. If there is one pair short of having an even number of tables, it is usual to make the N/S pair at the last table the missing pair, thereby avoiding sharing.
