Novice games

2007 Schedule (February - May)

When: Mondays, 7pm to 9:30pm

Where: Room 4-149 on the MIT Campus.

This Bridge plus game will focus on enjoyment and improving fundamental skills. The game is for individuals with little or no club experience, or ACBL members with less than 50 Masterpoints. We also welcome experienced bridge players if they would like to bring a novice to introduce them to the wonderful world of duplicate, however Masterpoints are only awarded to novices.

Each game starts with a short 20 minute lesson and then a relaxed duplicate game, where you can ask questions and get help, if needed. Feel free to attend one or all.

Mailing lists - The club maintains a mailing list for novices: mitdlbc-novices at mit dot edu. The list is mainly used for announcements about the Monday Novice Game and for players looking for a partner for the game. If you have an MIT athena account, you can subscribe/unsubscribe yourself. Otherwise, you can make subscription requests to mitbridgeclub at mit dot edu.

There is a PRO-AM on the regular Tuesday night MIT Club on 5/8/07 at 6:30pm. We will find you a partner and introduce you to the club! Contact Brian at with any questions
