THE WORLD OF TOURNAMENT BRIDGE

Presenter: Jordan Leibman

Jordan will discuss the attributes of “Great Games,” the role of the tournament bridge governing organizations and the “masterpoint system,” the difference between social bridge and tournament bridge, how tournament bridge is played and scored, “bidding systems” and “conventions,” types of tournament events and tournament levels, evolution of the tournament game, the role of luck, and bridge and senior mental health. For show and tell, Jordan will bring along some of the equipment used in tournament play, and will tell us how to get started in Indianapolis.

Bridge is one of the “Great Games.” In the United States 160,000 people pay dues to the American Contract Bridge League and at least twice that amount are members of foreign associations.

Ron Frank will be our October presenter. Details to come.
