A new press release and a booklet have been published by the European Bridge Legue (EBL) concerning the 6th European Open Championships in Ostend (Belgium) from the 15th to th 29th of June 2013. Note that some of the schedules have been changed. Compared to the preliminary communication there is a change concerning the WOMEN and SENIOR TEAMS schedule.
They both now start at the same time as the Open Teams (as has been the case in the past), that is Saturday June 22, ending Monday June 24. This earlier start and finish means that women and seniors from their own team event can also try qualifying in the OPEN PAIRS, while still retaining the option to enter the WOMEN/SENIOR PAIRS. Such an option has been requested by many women and senior players, and we are pleased to be able accommodate this.
Furthermore, the qualification stage lasts two days and the final stage one day, not the other way around as previously stated.
