The Common Game
The Common Game

Mr. Jay Whipple, III and his team at run a series of contests where performance and attendance are rewarded. Clubs play the same set of hands from a common library.  All of the pairs games at the Vanderbilt Bridge club now participate in the Common Game.  These results may be viewed here.

The benefits to you are:

  • Your own personal page that keeps track of your partners, games, and results
  • Post mortem analysis on some of the hands you played
  • Overall comparison/ranking with other players throughout the country who play the same hands

What you need to do:

  • Nothing! You get the same Masterpoints as normal.
  • You see your results online the same way (from the Vanderbilt calendar).
  • To view your personal page, go to and login with your ACBL number.
  • To be notified when your results are posted to the common game, provide your email under the Modify Profile button and request Email notifications
  • To view nationwide results for a day game, go here.
  • To view nationwide results for a nite game, go here.

What you need to know 

  • There are some great Common Game video tutorials here.
  • If the game is a Howell, and your are stationary, your scores will be under N/S or E/W not "Howellers."
  • If the game has fewer than four players over 500 masterpoints, it is considered a 299er game.
  • If you have fewer than 300 masterpoints you will show up in the 299er results.
  • If you have fewer than 300 masterpoints and play in an open game, you may show up both places (open and 299er).

The Vanderbilt Bridge Club utilizes a Duplimate Mark 4.4 automatic dealer for generating the pre-dealt boards.  We utilize Dealmaster Pro software which generates random hands and it allows us to provide hand records which include makeable contracts.
