Entries are open for the Michael Seamon Junior USBC

Entries are open for the 2017 Michael Seamon Junior United States Bridge Championships (JUSBC), which will be held in Atlanta December 27-30/31, 2017.  Entries close at 11:00 PM, Eastern Daylight Time, August 6, 2017.

Teams may enter in one of four categories: 

1) open U16 (born in 2003 or later);

2) open U21 (born 1998 or later);

3) open U26 (born 1993 or later); and

4) women U26 (Rona Cup; born 1993 or later). 

At least one team in each category will qualify to represent the USA at the World Youth Teams Bridge Championships in China, near Shanghai, August 8-18, 2018.  (However, in order to send an U16 team, the USBF will require enough chaperones going at their own expense.)

Teams may enter with 4, 5, or 6 players; winning teams with fewer than 6 players will augment so that 6-person teams represent the USA in China.  Depending on the number of teams entered in each category, an online (BBO) qualifying may be required September 16-17 and/or September 23-24, 2017.  Teams may enter at USBF.org (after you log on, click “enter 2017 Michael Seamon JUSBC” under the User Menu on the left).

Although the USBF has no designated funds for the Michael Seamon JUSBC, we have raised enough money privately to cover most of the expenses (airfare, lodging) for those who play in Atlanta.  We are grateful to our generous donors, who make this event possible (http://usbf.org/junior-events/2017-junior-usbc).  Click here to make a donation to support the Michael Seamon JUSBC; for PayPal or credit card donations, click on "Make a gift for the USBF Junior Program." 

The schedule of play in Atlanta will depend on the number of teams competing and will likely be different for the four categories. In all cases. we plan for participants to play at least two days before anyone is eliminated.  All matches at the JUSBC will be played with screens.
