Special Games With Additional Master Points
Every year the ACBL encourages clubs to play special games which award extra master points. Some of these games also award red, gold and silver master points in place of the black points awarded for a regular club game. Most of these games also carry an additional fee on top of the regular ACBL game fee.
After reviewing the games available we have come up with the following special games for the first six months of 2017:-
Feb 14 Sectional Tournament at Clubs (STaC) – Silver points
Feb 17 STaC – Silver Points
March 7 Club Championship – Double Black points
March 10 Club Championship – Double Black Points
April 11 Charity Club Championship followed by Wine & Cheese – Double Black Points
May 9 STaC – Silver Points
May 12 STaC – Silver Points
June 13 North American Pairs Champ (NAP) – 50/50 red/black Triple Points
June 16 NAP – 50/50 red/black Triple Points
June 27 Club Championship – Double Black Points
June 30 Club Championship – Double Black Points
These games will be available to our members at no extra charge.
The STaC games are played simultaneously across many clubs in District 2 using the same hands. In addition to the points awarded locally, the percentages achieved by pairs for a particular session in all participating clubs are compared then further awards are made for the overall placings in each strata based on the total number of pairs playing. This can amount to a lot of Silver points.
