The ClubIAC exists as a Private Club within Bridgebase Online, the premier online Bridge site. We have a hard core of about 500 regular members from a total membership of over 3000.
We are currently not actively recruiting new members, but if you are interested in joining IAC, please email BBO_IAC, giving details of your playing level, reasons for wanting to join and specifically which Teaching Sessions you are interested in attending.
Aims & AmbitionsOur aim is to help people in the Intermediate to Advanced range of playing ability to improve their Bridge skills. We seek to provide a friendly, supportive and secure environment in which people can improve their skills with other members of a similar level.
TeachingWe have a number of teachers delivering online Teaching Sessions each week. These teaching sessions are free to members and cover basic and advanced bidding theory, systems ranging from Standard American to Super-Precision, and aspects of Declarer Play and Defence.
Our Teachers come from a diverse range of backgrounds but all give their teaching time free of charge. At the moment, some of our teachers are on holiday.
CompetitionsWe currently run a number of scheduled Pairs Tournaments each week. These are directed by Curls77, bbo_iac and Dulci and we award IAC Master points to placed pairs. Teachers also schedule occasional Teaching Tourneys in addition to these.
We occasionally run a Teams League. The matches are played at two different times (GMT/UTC) on Saturdays and Sundays, and each Series lasts for 3 or more weeks. IAC Master Points are awarded for match wins.
We also occasionally run a Pairs Ladder and a Teams Ladder. These are inactive at the moment.
