La Baule International Bridge Festival

baie de La Baule
Welcome to the 70th International Bridge Festival of La Baule, from August 21st to August 30th, 2020

PROGRAM :

La Baule is the first French festival featuring a "board a match." This competition, very popular in the US, involves teams of 4 players. The main difference, however, lies in the scoring rule: indeed, at the end of a given hand the team scores:

• 1 point if won

• half a point for equality

• zero if lost

In particular, losing a hand by 20 or 2000 IMPs makes no difference! In this sense, "board a match" is somehow a pairs competition... played in teams of four!

A jazz-blues-rock band will be playing at the cocktail hour to follow the Mixed Pairs competitions.
