Bridge Tournaments

What is Duplicate Bridge? Duplicate bridge is the most widely used variation of contract bridge played in clubs and at bridge tournaments. 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.

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. (Source: Wikipedia)

Many of the contract bridge tournament listings on this page are found in the International Bridge Press Association Bulletin. Editor John Carruthers produces a well-researched and useful bridge calendar. A more recent source for upcoming bridge tournaments is Bridge Scanner. As well individual event organizers are invited to send their tournament information directly to us at greatbridgelinks@gmail.com
