Newplicate in the Aegean Room - 2nd and 4th Sundays

Newplicate is a beginners bridge game for duplicate players with less than 5 masterpoints. It is run by a bridge teacher, rather than a director, and is designed for people who play bridge, but are just getting into duplicate.  In fact most of the people playing have taken one or more of the club-run classes. The idea is to get newer players familiar with the modern duplicate game in a relaxed, non-threatening environment.  Players can ask for advice from the teacher, and if mistakes are made at the table, they are fixed at the teacher's discretion - not necessarily according to strict tournament rules. This game is run as a section of the Sunday game, and is sanctioned by ACBL as a 'Brigeplus' game. Some ACBL masterpoints will be earned by the winners.  Cost to play is $2 for Residents and $3 for Non-Residents.

Results are posted to this website, and players can see their results, look at the hands, and see what the more experienced players in the main club did with them. Over time, players should learn to play faster and with more confidence, and can graduate to playing in the Sunday or Monday club games.

This game is open to qualifying players , but you must register with Donna so she can ensure that we will have full tables. Contact Donna for more information or to reserve a seat at the games.   (Donna McIlwain, 216-640-9885,

ACBL Changes Masterpoint Formula - Alan McIlwain

Earlier, I had posted that the ACBL is changing the way they are doing things with their ACBL Live web site. They seem to have it working well, now.  The club will be paying its ACBL fees through ACBL Live. Both our web site and The Common Game will receive automatic updates from ACBL Live (once we get back to playing bridge as a club!).

You can go to ACBL Live and see the game results much as you do now on our website.  Note that Master Points assigned through ACBL Live will be official and will supercede any results we get from our computers running ACBLScore.

The Common Game is a service offered through local clubs which provides bridge players the opportunity to compare their results with players at other clubs, playing the same hands, in Florida and across the country for Sunday and Monday club games!  Check out the map at the link "Where in the world are Common Game clubs?" on .

In addition, The Common Game offers post-mortem pro analysis of many of the interesting hands played and awards monthly, quarterly, and annual prizes for both performance and attendance.  It is a fun way for clubs to broaden their players' bridge experience.
Participation in the Common Game does not affect a player's score or masterpoint award at the local club.  The ACBL masterpoints continue to be scored and reported as usual.  Common Game awards are based on matchpointed results across the larger field ... similar to our STAC games.  Below is a snapshot of the log on page for The Common Game.
Our games will be included on the days that we participate and your personal results will be captured if you are registered.  Prior days games are stored in the Archived Common Games.  Check it out ... particularly the Pro's analysis!
Scores will also be available at the Common Game.
