What can you play during the 22 Jumpstart Festival (Jan. 1-3) ?

From January 1st to January 3rd BBO is hosting another massive bridge festival to celebrate the new year. 2021 has been a tough one for many, so here's hoping 2022 will see things improving. The least we can do together is get the year off to the right kind of start.

Over the three days of '22 Jumpstart' there'll be tournaments for all levels, and new games for everyone to try.
