Upcoming Barometer Pairs Game

The Barometer Pairs game is differentiated from other pair games by the method of distributing the boards and by the scoring.  In a Barometer game the boards don’t move from table to table after each round. All pairs play the same boards at the same time throughout the event. Quite often each table will have its own set of boards. Equally often, two or three tables may share one set of boards. Each set of boards goes out of play after one round.  As a result, all scores for a given set of boards are available as soon as the round is over. So each pair knows where it stands at all times. Any given pair’s fortunes will rise and fall as the game goes on—hence the name Barometer.

   
Upcoming Instant Matchpoint Game

The 2018 Instant Matchpoint Game is Wednesday October 31st.  Identical hands are played throughout the ACBL. A book is distributed to all players at the conclusion of the game in which each and every hand is thoroughly analyzed by an expert. 1.00 Gold to Section Tops.  Remainder 50/50 Red/Black.  Table fees $8.00.

Please inform the Director of any scoring errors ASAP!
