0-199 Tournaments

Earn SILVER points at these tournaments where all players have less than 200 points!

You started playing bridge not too long ago and you never played in a tournament outside of a club? You have few points and 200 points seems huge? Do not hesitate to participate because you will meet other players who have begun to develop this same extraordinary passion.

These are one-day tournaments: you can play 1 of 2 sessions or 2 sessions on schedule. You can participate in as many days as you want, respecting the limit of established master points.

You are not a member of the ACBL? Come and participate. However, it is important that you consider the experience gained. Read the following.

You are not a member of the ACBL? You are a member but your experience is greater than your ACBL master points allow to see? Read this.

All bridge players are welcome to the tournaments of the Montreal Bridge League. All players must register in the category that corresponds to their real level, whether they play in pairs or teams competitions.

ACBL Rules:
  • The right of a non-member of the ACBL to play in an event restricted by masterpoints is subject to approval by the director of the tournament, to include the player in the right category. Players must register in the stratum equivalent to their experience.
  • A non-member who has attained a status at a given time can not subsequently play in a lower-level category.
  • The tournament director may require a member to be part of a stratum or higher category than his/her number of points, if that member is deemed to have more points.
To the following persons and others for whom the spirit of the description applies, it is important to determine the number of masterpoints that corresponds to their experience:
  • Non-members of the ACBL: they may be beginners with very limited experience or advanced players with a lot of experience.
  • Members whose ACBL points are well below their experience:
    • experience acquired before becoming a member;
    • little play in affiliated bridge clubs, but more in non-affiliated clubs, accumulating little master points;
    • members who come back after a long hiatus, and that could not recover the points in their record;
    • play on various websites;
    • experience gained in other countries.
How to determine a number of masterpoints that corresponds to the experience?
  • Assess the number of points that would have been obtained using the experience and frequency of play (eg. 30-50-100 per year).
  • Another method could be to assign a number of points equivalent to those of partners if the level is similar, or adjust accordlingly if the experience is greater (or less).

The director of the tournament or the League can help clarify the situation.

The successful implementation of the ACBL rules is based on cooperation of all players. Compliance will be appreciated by playing partners and all players. Failing to register in the appropriate category, the concerned pair or team will become ineligible to the overall ranking of the event.
