About IAC

The Club

IAC exists as a Private Club within Bridgebase Online, the premier online Bridge site. We have a hard core of about 175 regular members from a total membership of over 1000.

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.

Teaching

We currently have 8 teachers delivering a total of 15 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 Precision Club, 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.

Aims & Ambitions

Our 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.

Competitions

We currently run 3 scheduled Pairs Tournaments each week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sunday Nights GMT/UTC. These are directed by Mitsouko and Dulci and we award IAC Master points to placed pairs. Teachers also schedule occasional Teaching Tourneys in addition to these.

We also 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.
