Welcome to Northern Kentucky Bridge Club
Tuesday 10/4 Game CANCELED!

Due to a water main break, our game on Tuesday is canceled. The water trouble is outside the building, and there is no damage to the building. However, the Lions Club will be unusable while they correct the problem. We expect to be able to play our game on Wednesday evening.

International Fund Games
International Fund Games

 

September is ACBL International Fund month. ACBL offers double points for these games, but they charge an extra $1 and earmark the extra funds to support ACBL teams that compete internationally.

The good news for you is that NKBC picks up the extra charge, and you get double points at no extra cost. smiley

We'll play International Fund games during the last two weeks of September.

Handicap Pairs Friday 9/30

At our 5th Friday game in September, we'll try something new to NKBC; a handicap pairs game.

In this game, there are two winners, one for open pairs and one for handicap pairs.

In the open portion, winners are those who play the best bridge that day. It is an unstratified placement 1st, 2nd, etc.

In the handicap portion, winners are those who beat their personal average (for September) by the most. Handicaps are posted on our website. Handicaps represent the % bonus you will receive. E.G. if your handicap is 150, and you had a 50% game, multiply by your handicap by your result and divide by 1000. 50%*(150/1000)=7.5% bonus, so your final score is 57.5%. To calculate your partnership handicap, just average your handicap with your partner's.

The handicaps put eveyone's average (for September) on equal footing, and the game is all about playing better than YOUR average.

Half of your award comes from the open portion and half from the handicap portion. It sounds like fun. Hope you enjoy it! smiley
