The Montreal Bridge League now refers all bridge players to that site for overall and detailed results as well. See the results for this tournament.
– Pairs events: Overall results (total of 2 sessions) and Leaderboard (1st session), recap, and hands played.
– Team events: Results per round and “Overall“.

How to read the results of the events in pairs?
– Clicking on« Recaps » gives the list of players North-South and East-West by section, with the results obtained.
– Clicking on « Scores » (far right) gives to a player, detailed information on all boards played: the contract, by whom, the results in score, IMPS and %.
– Clicking on the board number (left) shows the diagram of the hand, with contracts played by all the  pairs, and the result in score, IMPS and %.

You are not a member of the ACBL? You are a member but your experience is greater than your ACBL masterpoints 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 who are not in good standing: they may have a still active member number, and they may not have accumulated points for a certain period of time while continuing to play on a regular basis.
  • 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.

Swiss Strategory: in which group to play and how is the overall done?

A/X: all teams can play in this group, if they wish to. The Overall A/X is done accordingly to the MP average of the team: A=2000+, X=0-2000.

B/C/D: all players in this group have less than 1500 master points (or its equivalent). All teams with at least 1 player of more than 1500 MP must play in A/X. The Overall is done accordingly to the MP average of the team: B=750-1500, C=200-750, D=0-200.
