This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

Thanksgiving 2020

Thanksgiving 2020 will be unique. Sadly, many of us will not be traveling to celebrate with our friends and families. Why not use the time you would have spent on the road or in the air to play some extra bridge this week?

ACBL has scheduled another Stardust Week starting Monday, November 23, through Sunday, November 29. All points earned this week on BBO will be doubled by ACBL and 25% of those will be gold! Our game fee will increase to $7 for games that week to cover the increase in the table fee charged by ACBL.

Since more of us will be staying home, we have decided to hold our 10 AM Limited (0-499) and 12:45 PM Limited (0-199) games on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26. Our current plan is to hold the Post-Mortem following the afternoon game. Remember you can earn gold points in those games. The 3 PM Open Game that day is cancelled so you can enjoy your dinner and/or football games.

We Have A World Champion in Our Midst 

The Bridge World magazine was first published in 1929. Its MASTER SOLVERS CLUB is the world's longest-running and most popular bridge feature. New problems in bidding and play are presented each month.

Our very own Bob Vollbracht finished 21st in the 2020 Bridge World Master Solvers Bidding Quiz! This contest is open to all bridge players worldwide. That is quite an accomplishment. Congratulations Bob!

Bob is the co-author of the Club’s Quick Reference Decks and has volunteered countless hours of his time and his extensive knowledge to make them great. When you purchase one of the Decks you are getting the benefit of this world champion’s expertise. Click here for more information about the Quick Reference Decks. 

What’s Different About Sunday Afternoon’s Game?

You may have noticed that our Sunday game consists of two sections (not to be confused with two games). There is a 0-499 Limited Section that starts at 12:30 PM followed by the Open Section starting at 12:45 PM. 

The beauty of having the two sections is that the table count, used to calculate masterpoint awards, is based on the combined table counts for both sections. Thanks to our dedicated 499ers, anyone who plays in the Open Section on Sunday is awarded masterpoints based on the table count across the two sections. 

I encourage you, especially Open players, to play in the Sunday afternoon game and take advantage of the increased masterpoint awards. 

Mentoring Game 

Please mark your calendars. Our next mentoring game is scheduled for 10 AM, Saturday, December 12. This game will be held the second Saturday of each month. We understand some of you would like to play more frequently. You can play in one of our regular Open Games (or, perhaps, in the 0-750 game Tuesday afternoon).

Gift Ideas

Have you begun to think about presents for the bridge players in your world?  We have some suggestions. The video of wonderful Barbara Seagram seminar on Two Over One makes a terrific present. You won't even have to wrap it. We'll send the link to the video directly to your giftee. How about a Quick Reference Deck? Each deck is about 30 cards of bridge expertise in a single package. And please don't forget that when you purchase the 2020 holiday ornament from Baron Barclay, they will donate $2 to the St. Petersburg Bridge Club. Find out more in our Online Store.
