Game Schedule

December 2019

Now that we have more players on Mondays, excpect for the STaC game we can have two sections again.  Section A will be unlimited with one or two strata--depending on attendance.  Section B will have an upper limit of 750 for its A stratum and 300 for its B stratum.  All Monday stratification will be based on the average masterpoints of each pair.

The STaC games the week of 12/9, including Monday afternoon's, require that the strata must be A=unlimited, B=2500, and C=750 and that there be only one section. Like all the other afternoon games this month, the STaC games are stratified by the average masterpoints of each pair.

What do Churchill, Sharif, Gates, Buffett have in common?
What do Churchill, Sharif, Gates, Buffett have in common?

 

They are well-known bridge devotees together with Dwight Eisenhower, Mahatma Ghandi, Deng Xiao Ping, Agatha Christie, Oprah Winfrey, Woody Allen, and Martina Navratilova.

The most challenging mental sport, bridge is a game of skill, concentration and infinite possibilities. It’s part science, part math, part logic, part reason and embodies cooperation, problem solving and has even been linked to higher test scores among children. It is an easy game to learn, a hard game to master and you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it.

Millions of people worldwide play at home, in clubs or on-line. Many advance to tournaments or “duplicate” bridge to enjoy its social competitive aspects.

The medical profession is only now coming to realise that, as people are tending to live longer. Remain mentally fit may be as important as maintaining their levels of physical fitness. More and more often chess, bridge, backgammon and crossword puzzles are being cited as excellent activities for keeping the brain exercised and stalling the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Bridge provides an excellent mechanism to improve a player’s:

  • Logical thinking skills
  • Mathematical ability
  • Memory
  • Teamwork
  • Social skills
  • Concentration
  • Critical thinking ability
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving ability, and
  • Inferential reasoning

Bridge is one of the few games played today by people of all ages and nationalities.
