Bridge Tournaments: updated monthly

What is Duplicate Bridge? Duplicate bridge is the most widely used variation of contract bridge in club and tournament play. It is called duplicate because the same bridge deal (i.e. the specific arrangement of the 52 cards into the four hands) is played at each table and scoring is based on how well you did on the hand as compared to everyone else who played it.

In contract bridge a tournament is composed of multiple “events”. Some may be single-elimination, double-elimination, or Swiss style. However, “Pair events” are the most widespread. Similar to all duplicate bridge events, a number of deals (or boards) are each played several times by different players.

For each such board the score achieved by each North-South (NS) pair is then measured against all the other NS pairs playing the same board. Thus pairs are rewarded for playing the same cards better than others have played them. There is a predetermined schedule of fixtures depending on the number of pairs and boards to be played, to ensure a good mix of opponents, and that no pair plays the same board or the same opponents twice.
