Do Online Masterpoints Count Towards Life Master?

Points won in non-vClub games, such as daily games found in ACBL World, are "non-pigmented". These points contribute to some degree toward Life Master and other levels, but there are black, silver and red/gold/platium requirements that must be met.

For example, points needed members joining after January 1, 2010 to achieve Life Master:
  • 500 Masterpoints.
  • At least 75 are black.
  • At least 75 are silver.
  • At least 100 are red/gold/platinum, of which 50 or more are gold/platinum.

Here's the requirements for all advancement levels.

Non-pigmented points do not count towards annual Mini-McKinney or Ace of Clubs awards.

Unit 550 Eliminates Premium Game Extra Fees

Beginning February, 2021, additional charges for SCBC vClub games will be absorbed by the Unit. Prior to this Unit Board decision, games such as Silver Week, had an extra $2 table fee because the ACBL raised their charge per table.

Virtual Clubs on BBO

Some games are conducted online as an ACBL Virtual Club (vClub) on BBO. Here's a document with details about our vClubs and how to register on BBO.

SCBC expands Face-To-Face (F2F) games. For updated information, click article in News and review the Game Calendar.

Unit 550 Mission: The Santa Cruz Bridge Center (SCBC), Unit 550 of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), promotes the game of bridge, supports bridge clubs running both Face-2-Face (F2F) games at the bridge center and on (BBO), and provides a pleasant, fun environment for learning and playing bridge. On BBO, our games are termed "vClub" because they can be found within the Virtual Club section. We would be pleased to assist you getting on BBO to enjoy our games.

Game Calendar & Schedules: There are games at the SCBC and on BBO throughout the week. Some are open to players of all levels, termed "Open Games", while others are reserved for newcomers, novice and/or intermediate players. Contact us at with questions or partner requests. Clicking Schedule lists the regular schedule. Clicking Calendar displays game time, level, table fee for games and classes.

Game Results: Click Results in the left side menu bar or on the results logos in the table to the right or on the suit symbols / in the Game Calendar.

Masterpoints & Game Winners: Significant bridge accomplishments by our members are found under Accolades; including a listing of all SCBC Life Masters.

We look forward to you at the tables!
