NewLaws:

The changes have been serialized in the Ruling the Game section of the Bridge Bulletin from July through November. Two of the ones that are easy to explain are:

  1. As of Jan 1, 2018 the stop card will no longer be in the bidding box at tournaments. ACBL has suggested we eliminate them at the club level as well. The opponent to the left of the bidder who makes a skip bid is still required to wait before he makes his bid.
  2. If no dealing machine is used, in dealing the cards manually, no two consecutive cards from the deck can be placed in the same hand. So deal them out one at a time in four consecutive piles as though you were dealing at the party bridge table. Since dealing five piles and combining the first and last piles puts the 5th card in the same hand as the 6th card, this also cannot be done.

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.
