Dear Member,

We are all in a unique situation due to COVID-19. Currently, playing at the club isn’t recommended and, quite possibly, isn’t available. Through our partnership with Bridge Base Online (BBO) and The Common Game, we are working on creating solutions for you and your club.

Starting Thursday, March 19, daily at 5 p.m. Eastern time, ACBL members can play with any other ACBL member in a specially created game on BBO and earn black masterpoints ®. When you play in one of these games, the majority of your table fees will be given back to your club. This way, you can help to support your club while also having the opportunity to win black masterpoints. Please note that this is a temporary solution to what is hopefully a temporary problem.

Playing as a partnership on BBO is just a few clicks away:

  • Simply log into your BBO account (you will need to create one if you don’t already have one)
  • Click on “ACBL World”
  • Click on “Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game”
  • You can read BBO’s instructions online.
Coming soon: We are working to develop a way that will allow you to play in games limited to your local club! Please keep an eye out for future updates.

Our community of bridge fans is strong. Please know we are working hard to give you opportunities to play the game you love during this time.

Thank you,
The ACBL Team
