Enhanced Masterpoint Games

Games played at the Golden Isles Duplicate Bridge Club are sanctioned bridge games by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL).   About 40% of the participants are awarded masterpoints.   However, the ACBL allows clubs to award enhanced masterpoints that pay out higher awards than normal club games.  Look at the calendar to see when the club will offer enhanced games.  Note, the board strives to participate in all enhanced games during normally scheduled bridge games.

 

Games Paying 81.8% of Sectional Awards

 

Club Appreciation, Club Membership, Upgraded Club Championship, NABC Promotional, ACBL Instant Matchpoint, ACBL Wide Charity and Fund Games, Worldwide Bridge Contest, North American Pairs, Grand National Team Fund Raiser, Unit and District Fund Games

 

 

Games Paying 63.6% of Sectional Awards

 

Grass Roots Fund Games, Educational Foundation, Charity Championships, International fund Games, Junior Fund Games.

 

 

Games Paying 72% of Sectional Awards

 

ACBL Wide Senior Games

 

NOTE:  WHILE THE ENHANCED GAMES PAY A PERCENTAGE OF SECTIONAL AWARDS, UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED, THEY ARE BLACK POINT GAMES.
