The Common Game

 

 

Jefferson Bridge  Association, Charlottesville, VA,  Club Manager-Nan Massie

 

Welcome to the Jefferson Bridge Association, Charlottesville, Virginia

Enjoy real southern hospitality at Jefferson Bridge Association's (JBA) games where you'll find challenging bridge, gracious players and delicious refreshments.

JBA was organized in 2006 to add to the enjoyment of duplicate bridge in Charlottesville and the surrounding areas of Virginia. The member-owned, non profit club is sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. JBA runs five games each week and sponsors an annual tournament. The club offers many special events to award additional masterpoints to the winners and benefit local charities. 

On the first Friday of each month, club masters offer a forum to discuss and teach bidding systems and playing techniques.

ACBL certified instructors offer private or group bridge classes beginning, intermediate and advanced players.

JBA was the first bridge club♠ in the US to use the highly successful Bridgemate Wireless Scoring System for instantaneous feedback and scoring.  All games feature pre-dealt hands and hand records.  Results of each game are posted on this website.

Acbl-wide Instant Matchpoint Game #2

INSTANT MATCHPOINT PAIRS:

A very special method of scoring is used for the Instant Matchpoint Pairs, a rare event—it is run only three times annually by the ACBL.

Identical hands are played throughout the ACBL (throughout the world in the Worldwide Pairs). As soon as the hand is played, the players can learn their Instant Matchpoint result by looking at the traveling score. All hands are scored in advance. A good-looking program book is distributed to all players at the conclusion of the game in which each and every hand is thoroughly analyzed by an expert.

STaC Games:

Sectional Tournaments at Clubs (STaC) are ACBL tournaments with sectional rating staged at many clubs in a geographical area over a period of up to seven days. Events are played at several clubs, and results are transmitted to a central office manned by the director in charge. The director combines the results to determine the winners and overall places for participants. Masterpoints awarded are silver.

 

 

yesNew Seating Procedure for JBA Gamessmiley

In an effort to make player distribution across sections and tables more equitable, and to use the same arrangement as most other ACBL-sanctioned clubs, JBA will adopt the following policy as of Wednesday, September 12, for a trial period.

Seating

When you arrive you will pay at the door for yourself and your partner and will be assigned seats. (If you don’t want to do this don’t register until both you and your partner are present.) No seating assignments will be made before entries are sold.

Stationary Seating

If you need a stationary seat please contact Elliot Mininberg by 5 pm the previous day. Phone calls are fine (cell: 434-825-8523; home: 434-296-2209, but please do not call him after 8 pm any evening); however, Elliot would prefer texts (434-825-8523) or emails (hfedu033@gmail.com). If you have not let him know by the time indicated you may not receive a stationary seat. Regulars who have a standing arrangement for an assigned seat should remember to let Elliot know by 5 pm the previous day if they are NOT playing. Elliot would also appreciate it if you would let him know who your partner is.

Late Arrival

All players should arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of game time. In case of an unavoidable delay please call Nan (434-531-4457) or the hotel (434-971-9900) and ask for a message to be given to Nan or the director immediately. If you arrive less than five minutes before game time, as indicated in a previous announcement, it’s unlikely that you will be able to play.
