Welcome to Minneapolis Grand Slam Club
MGSC Website

The Board of the Minneapolis Grand Slam Club welcomes you to our website.  The Club, in its 83rd year,  has a weekly Friday night tournament-quality game in a friendly atmosphere.

During Covid, this game is online at BBO.   

Members receive a weekly bulletin via email following the game with results and commentary on key hands.

Game time is 7:15pm.

Note: while the game is online, the Club's long-standing practice of providing a standby partner is in abeyance. BBO games offer a Partnership Desk where those looking for a partner may find one.

We will try to get everyone into the game if a partner is available and the movement can support the additional pair. 

Conditions of Contest for the 2020-21 MGSC KO are posted in the left-hand column.  A series of RR matches to be held on Tuesdays starting November 10.
