There is a correction to an earlier post regarding Combo. There is NOT a rule that there is to be a one-point spread between partners. The new rule institutes a cap on the rating for each level as follows:
NTRP cap for Combined Levels:
Level Max Rating
5.5 3.0
6.5 3.5
7.5 4.0
8.5 5.0 
9.5 5.5
10.5 6.0

So, as you get into the higher levels, there can be a 1 1/2 - 2 point spread between partners. The new rule more affects the lower levels where you can no longer register a 4.0 on a 6.5 team to play with a 2.5.
