September 22-October 6, 2018
The 2018 World Bridge Championships in Orlando, FL officially kicked off on Saturday, September 22nd with the Open and Junior Team Events. The Open Teams completed the two-day round robin on Sunday evening which brought 97 teams down to 64. At the end of Monday evening, there are 32 Teams remaining.
BridgeBaseOnline.com will be showing live vugraph throughout the championships. Play begins at 10am EST and goes throughout the day ending around 7pm EST. I always tell my students to watch these world-class players compete under the stress of a world championship to realize that Bridge is a difficult game. As the World Championships go on, the play gets worse and worse which makes it even more fun to watch!
