Handicap method for a club teams competition
We don't have a history in IMPs to work from, and we gave up Scorebridge for EBUScore a few years ago. Don't know anything about Pianola. I think it's right to use the same handicap for a team regardless of whom they play against, as the opponents ...

David - I agree it would be good to control for education and socio-economic status, but it's a piece of research being done in the UK, where we all have access to the best health care through our National Health Service,
Post 10. Captain Ewart Kempson & the first British broadcast of a Bridge programme Friday 15th September 2017.
It's not exactly surprising that there was no mention in a book of 1932 of the 2 club ask over 1NT, as Jack Marx did not invent the convention known as Stayman until seven years later, in 1939. And surely transfers are an entirely post war development?
