The best way to prepare for the Bridge International Championship 2020 (BIC) will be to compete in our free BIC practice tournaments. There will be two available on Friday, October 23 and two more on Saturday, October 24 – starting midnight US Eastern Time.
The format will be similar to the BIC tournaments: daylong style, individual, with robots, 12 boards, Matchpoints. Your scores will be averaged and you get to see how you rank overall and against compatriots on the BIC leaderboard.
Your IP address will determine which country you represent (for example, Garozzo will represent the USA if he’s in the USA). If your country doesn’t have at least 10 players, you’ll represent the “Rest of World”.
How to win a prize
