Exciting news for BBOers. This summer, BBO will host an ACBL NABC event - the 2017 NABC Online Individual! This event awards an NABC title along with Gold and Red Masterpoints.

Details soon, but briefly: the event will be modeled after a Daylong (Robot Duplicate) tournament.
  • July 23-26 (during the Toronto NABC).
  • ACBL membership required
  • $50 event entry fee ($40 with early bird discount)
  • 24 boards a day, over 4 days, flexible start time
  • ACBL announcement here

Keep an eye open for more news and details. We'll also be setting up multiple practice tournaments (yes, there will be free versions) to help BBOers practice for the big day.

Feedback welcome here.

Fourth and last Free NABC Practice Tournament is held this weekend (Friday, July 14 though Sunday, July 16) on BBO in conjunction with the ACBL and awards free entry to the NABC Online to top 10 winners overall. Details here.

More good news:
  • The award payout for the NABC Online Individual has been significantly increased. ACBL has just confirmed an increase in the total number of awards, to 67 places for each daily session and 187 places for the overalls.
  • Points earned in the NABC Online will count towards the Mini-McKenney Race (masterpoint race for points earned at ACBL sanctioned tournaments and clubs, excluding online), as well as the Fishbein Trophy (awarded to the player who wins the most masterpoints at the Summer NABC).

This does mean the points earned in this event do not count towards the Ace of Clubs (for points won at a local sanctioned club) and Online Race (for most points won online).
