The Common Game

Post date: Jun 11, 2014 4:15:35 PM

Garden City DBC regularly participates in The Common Game (thecommongame.com). Clubs all over the U.S. and Canada play the same hands and club results are then matchpointed across the larger field (often with well over 1000 pairs). This allows individuals to see how their play holds up against a larger field. After every pairs game, you can go to their website and look at your personal results plus read expert analysis on some of the hands we played. If you aren't already receiving an email after each game, you can also add your email address to your personal profile so you receive results instantly after the game and some tournaments.

Here are some links for learning more about The Common Game and how to make use of their website:
