Bob Simpson Memorial Charity Club Championships October 2022
Bob Simpson Memorial Charity Club Championships October 2022

Please join us Friday–Sunday, October 20–22, for our sixth annual weekend of charity club championships in memory of Bob Simpson. The schedule is:

Individuals* Friday, 10:30 one session
Pairs Saturday, 10:00 and 2:00 two-session event, single-session entries available, lunch between sessions
Teams Sunday, 10:00 two-session Swiss, lunch between sessions

This year’s Simpson Charity Club Championships will be Club-Appreciation-rated, awarding black points (5% gold on Sunday) at 82% sectional rating. Your contributions of $2 per player per session (or more, if you like) will benefit One Family, Inc. Winners in each stratum are commemorated on a perpetual plaque at the club.

All events are stratified by average. Entries limited to 24 tables. Reservations available at the club. Reservations will be held until ten minutes before game time.

The defending champions are:

Individuals* A: Sandra Nyman
B: William Shaffer
C: Livingston Carroll
Pairs A: Sheila Gabay and Pat McDevitt
B: Marshall Williams and Roger Zessis
C: Ellen Brown and Valerie Fleischer
Teams A: Sheila Gabay, Lewis Gamerman, Shome Mukherjee, and Mark Aquino
B: Saul Agranoff, Stuart Whittle, Carole Weinstein, and Ann Baum
C: Venky Venkataramani, Sam Shoushtarian, and David and Marguerite Levin

*Individual events are rare these days, but can be a lot of fun. Two tips:

  • As in cut-around rubber bridge, you’ll have some partners who are more skilled than you and some who are less. So will everybody else! Seek the best results possible with every partner and bring your sense of humor.
  • In an individual event, you are allowed to refer to your own convention card. If you take a few minutes before the game to fill out a relatively simple convention card (or two), then you can hand a card to each partner and greatly reduce bidding misunderstandings.

Jane Johnson Club Appreciation Month

October is the ACBL’s annual Jane Johnson Club Appreciation Month. Club Appreciation Pair Games are special games run during the month of October at clubs. They offer masterpoint awards calculated at 82% sectional-rated black (29% more than Club Championships and special fund games). Club Appreciation Team Games are special games run during the month of October at clubs and offer masterpoint awards calculated at 82% of sectional-rated black, but overall awards are 5% gold (not to exceed .25 gold points). The games run during this month recognize the contributions of Jane Johnson, longtime manager of ACBL’s Club Membership Department, to the ACBL.

We’ve scheduled ten Club Appreciation Pair Games and seven Club Appreciation Team Games. The ACBL does not charge clubs extra table fees for Club Appreciation games, so we don’t charge you extra (unlike some clubs). Entry fees are the same as regular games ($10 per player for Monday–Saturday daytime games; $9 per player for evening games and Sunday afternoon games).

Swiss team games are a fun break from matchpoint scoring. Many think team games are more like “real bridge.” Team games have the nice feature that almost everybody earns masterpoints (if you don’t place in your stratum, you get masterpoints for every match you win). For more about team games, see this page on the ACBL web site. We run Swiss team games with predealt hands and electronic scoring, so we’re able to play 24 boards in about 3¼ hours—about the same time as a pairs game—and you get hand records at the end, and you can view complete results on the web after the game.
