Our second "8 Is Enough" game drew a good-sized crowd to the Bridge Center on Saturday Nov. 18.  The appeal of playing with different partners than usual is taking hold and we had 15 teams competing. Because our Holiday Party will be held on the third Saturday in December (12/16) we will not have an 8 is Enough game until January 20, 2018.  See you then.

The concept is straightforward. Every team consists of four players of varying skill and experience levels.  That is accomplished by assigning a player a value determined by the player’s master point total.  Each player categorized as an “A” player carries a value of 3 points.  Each “B” player counts as 2 points, and each “C” player counts as 1 point.  A team may not have any combination of players whose total value exceeds 8 points. (Hence the name “Eight is Enough”).  For example, a team that has two “A” players must also have two “C” players (3+3+1+1=8).  A team must have a combination of players whose value totals 8 or less.   Each team will then compete in a traditional Swiss team game.

Each player with over 1000 master points is an “A” player.  Each player whose master point total falls between 200 and 1000 is a “B” player.  Each player whose master point total is less than 200 points is a “C” player.  If a player has a question about his/her master point total, the Club Manager or any game director can look it up.

Start putting your team together and enjoy this great new approach to team bridge! For assistance in finding our completing a team contact Tom Roush, our Club manager. t.roush697734@att.net
