Victory Points Conversion Scale

The conversion of IMPs to Victory Points varies according to the tournament, and can vary according to the country in which the tournament takes place. There are several conversion schedules used for different types of tournaments. There is no standard Conversion Table for the governing body of ACBL. Following are a few of these types of conversion tables.

The Conversion Scale generally employed for ACBL can be viewed by clicking on the following .pdf file. This file is only archived and preserved here on this site for future reference, and the visitor is encouraged to view the original at the following URL maintained by ACBL: Victory Points
