Join Bridge Winners
Yeh Bros Cup 2018

The Yeh Bros Cup is the most prestigious prize money tournament in the bridge world. With a total prize sum of more than 300.000 US dollars (a stunning 180.000 for the winner), it attracts bridge stars from all continents to present a field even the Bermuda Bowl would envy. 

The tournament was originally held biennially; however at the closing ceremony in 2017 the generous host and bridge enthusiast Mr. Chen Yeh made the popular statement "We need to see each other more often". 

28 teams participate; participation is by invitation only, and traditionally Mr. Yeh invites the medalists from the most recent European and world championships, along with the strongest nations in Asia, 3 US and other specially invited teams, including 3 teams from the host, this year the Beijing Bridge League. 

The format is 10 rounds of qualifying swiss with the top 8 entering the knock-out phase. If Mr. Yeh's team is not in the top 8, only the top 7 qualifies with Mr. Yeh's team completing the top 8. It is Mr. Yeh's pleasure and privilege to play against the best in the world.

The winners is 2017 were Huub Bertens, Curtis Cheek, Fred Gitelman and Eric Kokish. This year Bertens and Cheek return with Ralph Katz and Gary Cohler. 

 

The Yeh Bros Cup runs from July 1st - 5th.
