The One-Eyed Jacks Cup

Your County Needs.....    YOU!

Merseyside & Cheshire County Bridge Association is for ALL bridge players in our area and we are working really hard to run a range of competitions to suit everyone. Our latest offering is specifically aimed at people who haven’t played in county competitions before.

The One-Eyed-Jacks Cup

  • Entry limited to those with NGS grade up to and including Jack (J High)
  • Swiss Pairs – so you get to play against those who have similar results to yours
  • Five rounds of five boards each with a break for refreshments
  • County level master point awards (double the MPs that you would get for a club event)

The One-Eyed Jacks Cup will be played on Sunday 11th April starting at 2 pm. Entry is 5BB$ per person payable through BBO but please pre-register on the M&CBA website:

Competitions galore!
Competitions galore!

Competitions galore coming up, starting with an EBU Sim Pairs event on Monday 12th April and followed on Tuesday 13th by Deva's annual Ladies and Mens Pairs competitions. The week after sees the finals of the Fearn Cup (18th April) and Championship Pairs (21st April) and the last round of Championship Teams takes place on 14th April.

  • The entry fee for sim pairs is 7$ to cover the additional charge from EBU - see if you can beat Simon and Alan's achievement in the Winter Sim Pairs (they were 12th nationally) - you won't though be able to better Liz and David's result in the Autumn Sim Pairs (but can equal it!)
  • Register on BBO in the normal way for the Ladies and Mens Pairs on Tuesday 13th - the two events will be separate competitions - make sure you enter for the right one (please no mixed pairs on this day)
