Information for Unit 559 Clubs


                           


You will learn more bridge from losing to good players than you will from winning against poor players.

Silver Points on BBO....
This week, thru Sunday, the ACBL is providing sanctioned Silver Linings tournaments for all BBO virtual clubs.
    All ACBL Virtual Club games will pay twice the number of points as a club game during the Silver Linings week, and in addition all points awarded will be silver.  (The rank of Life Master in the ACBL requires at least 75 Silver points.)

    All BBO club games are stratified.  The cutoff for C players is usually around 250 masterpoints.
    Any C flight team that does well in a stratified game will win even more masterpoints for winning at a higher level.

    When you log in to BBO, click Home and then click on ACBL Virtual Clubs.  Next, choose ACBL - North America
    There is a Search Box at the top... If you are looking for the club where our local members are playing, type Pasadena in the Search Box.

Pasadena-San Gabriel Unit 559
Our unit is one of nine in District 23 and we are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League.   We have an elected board of 12 members that meets monthly and is responsible for unit games and the annual John Waken sectional.  There are two clubs in our unit - The San Marino Bridge Club and the Arcadia Bridge Center.



Our Virtual Club

How to Find Our Club on the BBO Website
When you log on, you are at the Home screen.  Click on Competitive and then click on All Tournaments.   There's a Search Box at the top, on the right... Simply type in a few letters or numbers that will help identify what you are looking for:   23 is sufficient for District 23, and 556 is enough for Unit 556.  You can type in Pasa for our virtual club.
