Visiting Lakeside and want a partner?
 
Welcome to Lake Chapala Duplicate Bridge Club
September Game Schedule

In addition to the usual $40 peso pair games, in September we will have the following special games:

 

 

Monday, September 25th – We will participate again in an Inter-Club Championship Game that will be administered at the ACBL level. From the acbl.org web site:

 

The strat limits used for the overall masterpoint awards will be as follows, but you may run your game with your normal strats if you prefer. All strats are re- computed before generating overall results. A=1500+, B=500-1500 and C=0- 500. (I think we'll use their strats to avoid confusion when comparing with other clubs.)

 

Score correction period for the games is 24 hours after conclusion of the event.

 

Fees for this event are your regular club fees plus $1 USD per player. (In our case, $60 pesos.)

 

 

Don't Forget to PLAY NICE!

Your Board has been focused on attracting novice and former members to play in our open games. We want to remind everyone that bridge is a game of respect for all, regardless of experience. Please remember the "play nice" guidelines as posted on our bulletin board. Many thanks.

What do Churchill, Sharif, Gates, Buffett have in common?
What do Churchill, Sharif, Gates, Buffett have in common?

 

They are well-known bridge devotees together with Dwight Eisenhower, Mahatma Ghandi, Deng Xiao Ping, Agatha Christie, Oprah Winfrey, Woody Allen, and Martina Navratilova.

The most challenging mental sport, bridge is a game of skill, concentration and infinite possibilities. It’s part science, part math, part logic, part reason and embodies cooperation, problem solving and has even been linked to higher test scores among children. It is an easy game to learn, a hard game to master and you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it.

Millions of people worldwide play at home, in clubs or on-line. Many advance to tournaments or “duplicate” bridge to enjoy its social competitive aspects.

The medical profession is only now coming to realise that, as people are tending to live longer. Remain mentally fit may be as important as maintaining their levels of physical fitness. More and more often chess, bridge, backgammon and crossword puzzles are being cited as excellent activities for keeping the brain exercised and stalling the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Bridge provides an excellent mechanism to improve a player’s:

  • Logical thinking skills
  • Mathematical ability
  • Memory
  • Teamwork
  • Social skills
  • Concentration
  • Critical thinking ability
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving ability, and
  • Inferential reasoning

Bridge is one of the few games played today by people of all ages and nationalities.
