Pairs section, final properties

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

When the [Next] button is selected on the movement properties screen one of a number of screens will be shown, depending on the movement chosen.


Some of the movements such as "User" and "Howell" require that you select the movement from a list of available options. All the Mitchell type movements will skip this step.

Then the final properties screened for the section will be shown.



The advanced options are:


Pair & table numbers

When you select this option the list of tables and their default pair numbers are shown on the pair and table number assignment screen.


Low bye-stand table

Where you have chosen a Relay Mitchell, the ASE Scorer presents you with the option to enter the position of the bye-stand table (also known as the relay table).


You enter the table number of the lower numbered table of the two between which the bye-stand boards are placed.


For example, with an 8 table relay Mitchell the bye-stand boards would normally be placed between tables 4 and 5. Enter 4 indicating the lower of the two.


Note: When the bye-stand is between the end tables the lower is considered to be the last table in the movement. In the 8 table example, if the bye-stand boards are placed between tables 1 and 8, the lower numbered table is 8.


Skip round

Where you have chosen the Skip Mitchell movement, the ASE Scorer presents you with the option to enter the round number after which the skip occurs.


The ASE Scorer will validate this number to be within the allowable range for this number of tables and proceed.


If the number is invalid, error message 20 is presented "Skip Round Not Valid". For example, with an 8 table Skip Mitchell the latest round after which the skip may occur is 4.


Rover pair start table

Where you have selected a North-South Rover Mitchell movement the ASE Scorer presents you with the option to enter the table number at which the N-S pair is replaced by the Rover pair on the second round.


It is normal procedure for the North-South Rover pair to enter the movement at table 2.


North-South pair replaced after skip

Where you have selected a North-South Rover Mitchell movement and the number of tables and board sets is even, a Skip Mitchell is used.


In this case the North-South Rover pair has the option of replacing the next higher pair or the next lower pair (from the original start table) after the Skip round. You have the option of selecting either of these.



This field only appears on the screen when the movement type is in the Mitchell category. If you are using a switch Mitchell, tick this item.


Switched rounds

This is available when you choose to use a Switch Mitchell. Any Mitchell movement may have switching where the number of winners in the movement is one.


Having chosen a Switch Mitchell this panel is available so that you may enter the rounds where the switching is to occur. You enter the rounds one at a time separated by commas. For example, if you have a Switch Mitchell where you are wanting the switching to occur on rounds 2, 5 and 7 simply enter "2,5,7".
