Bridge & other card games/final scoring in a Howell movement

Question
In a 3 table 6 pair Howell movement game, we have everything down pat Except the total scoring.
Some say 4-2-0 and
some say 2-1-0
What do you recommend and can you sent me a sample of what a score sheet should look like.
Thanks

Answer
Hi,

Using 4-2-0 or 2-1-0 will result in exactly the same final rankings. Either one is fine but some people prefer 4-2-0 because that eliminates the use of fractions. It is now 1 matchpoint for a tie instead of one half.

The following link contains score sheet examples.

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
