The Bridge Club of Houston has joined the SE Carolina Club Consortium for on-line games!

WE WILL CONTINUE ALL OF OUR OWN CURRENT CHOOSE HOUSTON GAMES:

  • THURSDAY AT 7PM Central time
  • MENTOR/MENTEE GAMES ON THE 1ST AND 3RD MONDAYS AT 7PM Central time.

Why did we join?

If you play in SE Carolina Club virtual games, BCoH will receive $1 for each time you play.

What is the SE Carolina Consortium?

  • In August, ACBL relaxed restrictions so that virtual clubs may allow any player entry into their virtual games so SE Carolina Club built a consortium of clubs
  • BCOH will benefit from revenue sharing provisions from our players as they increase the number of their games and their table counts
  • They are competing effectively with the BAND, Southeast Knoxville/Big Orange and other large virtual clubs on pricing and game sizes · Their website is https://sites.google.com/view/se-club-of-clubs/home

CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT ABOUT OUR NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH SE CAROLINA CLUB CONSORTIUM!

Everyone is Welcome at BCoH!

Reminder

Bridge is as friendly as the players, and it’s important to be a good partner and opponent. Introduce your partner and yourself to the opponents at the start of each round. Thank your partner when she puts down the dummy. Wish the opponents good luck before you start the game. Don’t get upset about a bad result — you get to start fresh with the next 13 cards. Successful partnerships will discuss difficult hands and situations where something went wrong after the session in private.
