ACBL will be organizing the 2020 Fall North American Online Bridge Championships on BBO, from November 27 to December 6.
The Fall NAOBC features two high-level events: the Premier Knockout (Nov 27-Dec 6) and the Premier Pairs (Dec 5-6). Both events have three flights: Open, 0-5000, and 0-1500. All flights award NABC titles.
Pre-registration for the NAOBC Premier Knockout Teams is mandatory and is limited to the first 256 teams. Registrations can be made here from November 9 to November 23.
Entries for the NAOBC Premier Pairs will be sold on BBO, like for all pair tournaments, two hours before game time.
