COMMON GAME

The Monday-night games are participating in the nationwide Common Game event, where dozens of clubs play the same hands. The Common Game merges all these results and ranks the field.

The CG web site is a great learning resource because it provides LOTS of details about what you and other pairs did on each hand. Here are the results from 56 clubs that played last Monday night:

Scroll down to see the Howell winners, hand diagrams and nationwide distribution of results.

After every CG session, you'll receive an email with your score and links to hand records and results from other clubs. If your email address is on file with ACBL, you'll get this email automatically. If ACBL doesn't have your address, you can still receive the CG emails. Just send a blank email with your ACBL number (typed on the Subject: line) to FastResul...@gmail.com .
