We’ve been working very hard on expanding possibilities for play at all levels at the Essex Bridge Center Online site (through BBO). We have some exciting news and changes happening this week. We’re not...
Tired of Small Games?
Looking to play evening bridge?
Not on BBO yet but want to be?
Essex Bridge Center is partnering with a select few Clubs around the country to bring you bigger and better games with more masterpoints.
This alliance will create games that are large enough for maximum point awards but small enough to have a reasonable chance of winning or cracking the overalls.
Who Are Our Partners?
Ultimately, there will be 5 or 6 Clubs in this partnership once all the pieces fall into place.
However, as of today, we are partnered with Sagamore Bridge Club of NY and Jourdans of FL.
If you have partners that play at our allied Clubs, you will be able to play together!
What Are The Advantages?
In addition to the larger and better games, the ACBL will starting applying a 50% bonus to masterpoints won in Virtual Club Games soon. This bonus will NOT be applied in the Save Your Club games – only in Virtual Clubs and Virtual Club alliances like ours. Clubs with larger games will earn more points than Clubs with smaller games.
This bonus is not being applied just yet. The ACBL will announce the exact date of this upgrade in a couple of days.
