Butler Pairs Scoring

Butler scoring is a method of scoring a pairs events that is nearer to teams scoring. For each board, a "par" is calculated from ALL results in your direction;  your score is the International Match Point (IMP) score for your result compared with "par". There are various methods used to calculate par, one of the more common methods is to take the average of the results after removing the top and bottom scores.  

In IMP scoring for each board the total point difference between the two scores compared is converted into IMPs according to the scale shown here.
