The 299er turnout at 7:05 is improving significantly and this Jackpot game is our incentive to build attendance of 299ers at 7:00.  

  •  You must play with another "human" to win. 
  • To WIN, you must have at least a percentage that matches the target percentage (starts at 75%) or higher (if two pairs - then the highest percentage wins)  Only one pair can win in a given night. 
  • The JACKPOT starts at 50 BB$ (for a pair) and increases by 1 BB$ for each night unclaimed. 
  • The TARGET percentage starts at 75%.  Each week, on Sunday, the Target % goes down by 1% (the 2nd week, if unclaimed will have a 74% Target). 
  • Once someone wins the Jackpot, the prize and target reset the very next night (50 BB$ and 75%).  

We have a goal of at least 10 tables per section at night - benefiting both the 299ers and the Open section.


The 299er Jackpot has been won three times as of now:

  • February 28th 79 BB$ Won by Ann-Marie McBride - Dave Lehrer with a 73.96% game
  • January 22nd 58 BB$ Won by S Langdon - Shay Decandia with a 78.82% game
  • January 12th 92 BB$ Won by Eileen Evans - Sandra McCann with a 68.06% game



We have 

  • 199er Sections Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings at 9:30
  • 299er Sections Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at 9:30
  • Open Sections Monday thru Saturday mornings at 9:30

The FOUR players that have earned the most masterpoints in EACH of  the 9:30 199er section, the 9:30 299er section, and the 9:30 open section will win a free entry the following week (separate contest for each section).  Once the winners are announced each week, if they buy an entry in any 9:30 game the following week, I will transfer BBO$ into their account to refund their entry fee the next Sunday.

The intent is to have a separate game for the 199ers and the 299ers, but at the same time give the Open players the extra benefit from the subordinate tables.  

EVERY SUNDAY I will announce the winners from that week.  I will also make the BB$ transfer on Sunday to every winning from the previous week that did participate in the following week.

SOUTHEAST Bridge Club Consortium - BBO AND SEBCC

The SOUTHEAST BRIDGE CLUB CONSORTIUM (SEBCC) is a great group of clubs that have come together offering a wide range of: 

  • Game Days (Every Day of the Week)
  • Game Times (9:30, 1:05 and 7:05)
  • Games for different player levels (49er, 99er, 299er, 499er, and Open)
  • Tremendous opportunities for player development (see below) from nationally ranked teachers (Kevin Wilson and Jim Ricker)

The SEBCC Mission is to keep bridge players of all levels engaged and excited about bridge.  When we get back to Face to Face bridge, we want the players EAGER to show off their new skills and knowledge to their friends at your clubs.
