2. 2014 剑桥80分大赛赛制及规则详情
时间: 2014/3/2 周日 1:00pm-7:00pm(可以提前离开)

地点: Newnham College

赛制: 采取两人一组的参赛模式. 视参赛总组数进行x轮”瑞士制”赛制的比赛(不懂的请自行问度娘)

规则: 在标准80的规则基础上稍作修改

A. 需要着重提出的:

① 不可以自己反自己要的主牌

② 在别人反了自己要的主以后不得再亮一张之前自己要的主进行自保

③ 若抓牌结束后仍无人亮主,则庄家翻开底牌,如翻到级牌,此级牌花色为主花色;如未翻到级牌,以其中牌面最大的牌的花色为主花色;如翻到大(小)王,则打无主牌.

④ 逢分必打(5.10.K.A的局不可以由于升多级以及作为闲家得够120分以上的情况跳过)

⑤ 抠底时,底牌分数x2^抠底牌张数,甩牌的情况下只看其中最大牌型的张数!

B.本次比赛独有的特殊规则:

① 甩牌如失败,留下导致失败的所有牌型里分值(没有分则为点数)最大的牌型,并罚10  (e.g. 甩JQ, 发现外面有K,算甩牌失败,留下Q并罚10分. 甩5588KK,发现外面有对9,算甩牌失败,留下对5,并罚10分)

总结一句千万不要乱甩牌!

② 此为重要信息,也是本次比赛的主要规则改动:为更有效迅速的使比赛进行下去, 我将以单局胜负数.i.e.三局两胜来进行每轮成绩的评判!

详解:

单局胜负:

① 庄家成功守住分数没让闲家拿到80分以上,并保底成功! 庄家胜并升相应的级数, 但是闲家可以选择下局做庄家或者继续做闲家

② 闲家成功取得80分以上. 闲家胜并升相应的级数, 但是庄家可以选择下局继续做庄家或者做闲家

③ 闲家没有取得80分以上但是抠了庄家底. 判平局. 庄家不能升级但是可以选择下局做庄还是做闲.

PS: 如果三局两胜的第三局为平局且导致最终平手(即双方1胜1负1平或3平),则判该局的庄家胜利

每轮初始庄家判定:

①  第一轮由各选手进行传统的抢庄(A②有效)

②  从第二轮起,每轮一开始由之前做庄总数少的队伍选出一名选手作为该轮的起始庄家.

③  若两队做庄总数相同,则采取①

局所打的数字:

由该局的庄家的等级决定该局打的数字

注意:  该等级作为队伍等级贯穿整个比赛. 如果期间有队伍先打通了Ace, 则直接获得决赛资格并持有巨大优势

决赛:

瑞士轮比赛结束后, 我们将选取获胜轮数最高的两组队伍进行决赛,规则回归到传统规则(A与B①仍有效). 等级仍然继承队伍在瑞士轮积攒的等级. 首轮庄家由瑞士轮排名靠前的队伍决定.  若进入决赛的队伍在瑞士轮就已经打通,则算作仍在打Ace处理.

规章这里要说明一些在游戏时候需要注意的操作问题

A.每局操作时间 每局每组将会有10分钟(到比赛时,可视情况延伸)的总操作时间. 将会有专业计时器计时. 拿起底牌那时开始为庄家计时. 每个人出完牌后, 按下自己组那边的计时器按钮, 停止本方计时, 并开始对方的计时. 当有一方用光10分钟后, 丧失出牌权利, 自动展示两个人所有手牌, 以后由对方决定他们的出牌. 当双方时间都用完以后, 当局结束, 按当时的分数计算输赢. 后用完时间的人可以抠底/保底.

B. 比赛过程中, 严禁和队友以及队友交流. 也不可以闲聊. 如果被举报或者被裁判发现, 会视情况决定惩罚.(警告,当局负,当轮负或者开除比赛).

C. 只要已经亮出要出的牌(被人看到), 就必须出. 要反悔, 10.

D. 凡是出现牌数不对错跟错弊以及错垫. 犯错一方直接算当局负. 两方同时犯以上错误, 则算平局. 若此平局导致本轮平局, 则判双方双负.

E. 比赛时, 一律将所有人已出的牌放在一起. 任何人, 任何时候都不得查看其中的牌. 违规将视情况被惩罚.

F. 任何觉得对对手做法不妥的时候, 都可以叫裁判. 裁判会视情况给予惩罚.

G. 警告每轮累计两次则判当局负.

奖品待定!!!!!!(总价值会达到100镑哦~~~~)

4. Invitation by CUHKCAS: In Dialogue with Martin Jacques – “How Change Will Change Everything”
On behalf of the Cambridge University Hong Kong and China Affairs Society (CUHKCAS), I wish to invite members of Cambridge University Chinese Cultural Society (CCS) to our upcoming talk on 6th March (Thursday) by Mr. Martin Jacques.

Mr. Jacques is the author of “When China Rules the World” and a Senior Fellow at the Department of Politics and International Studies at Cambridge University and he will be speaking on China’s growing economic and political power and its implications in the global context. I believe this talk will be of great interest to members of CCS and will prove to be a valuable learning experience. It will be highly appreciated if you can promote the event among members of CCS.

The details of the talk are as follows:

Date: 6th March, 2014 (Thursday)
Time: 17:00-19:00
Venue: Sidgwick Hall, Newnham College
Admission is free and all are welcome.

****TOPIC: HOW CHANGE WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING****

CUHKCAS is honoured to invite Martin Jacques, the author of the global best-seller “When China Rules the World”, to share with us his thoughts on China’s growing economic and political power and its implications in the global context.

–Biography–

Martin Jacques is the author of the global best-seller “When China Rules the World: the End of the Western World and the Birth of a New Global Order”, which was first published in 2009. It has since sold over a quarter of a million copies and been translated into fourteen languages. The second edition of the book – greatly expanded, revised and updated – was published in 2012.

He is a Senior Fellow at the Department of Politics and International Studies, Cambridge University, and a Visiting Professor at Tsinghua University, Beijing. He is also a fellow of the Transatlantic Academy, Washington DC.

His interest in East Asia began in 1993 with a holiday in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia and his research on the book in 1998 when he went to live in Hong Kong. During the following year he travelled extensively in China, Japan and Taiwan but his work on the book was interrupted by the tragic death of his wife in 2000, a consequence of negligence caused at least in part by racism. He stayed on living in Hong Kong with his son until March 2001, fighting for an inquest into his wife’s death and then helping to initiate a campaign for the introduction of anti-racist legislation which was finally successful in 2008. In 2010, after a legal struggle with the Hospital Authority in Hong Kong concerning the hospital’s clinical negligence that lasted almost a decade, the Hospital Authority was finally forced to settle days before the matter was due to go to the High Court. He eventually resumed work on the book in 2005 and completed the final manuscript for the book in December 2008.

Born in Coventry in 1945, he took a first class honours degree at Manchester University followed by a masters degree. He then went to Cambridge University, where he was a member of King’s College, and gained a PhD. He subsequently held a lectureship in the Department of Economic and Social History at Bristol University.

An award-winning journalist, in 1988 he became a columnist and essayist for the Sunday Times, a relationship which continued until 1994. In 1991-2, he was also a columnist for The Times and in 1996 – 8 for the Observer and from 2002 for the Guardian and more recently the New Statesman. In addition he has written extensively for many newspapers and magazines in the UK and elsewhere, including Financial Times, The Economist, Daily Telegraph, The Independent, Daily Mail and South China Morning Post.

Thank you very much. I hope to see you there!

Kind regards,
Belle Lam
External Secretary
Cambridge University Hong Kong and China Affairs Society
