OPEN & WOMEN'S USBC ENTRIES CLOSE SOON

This year's Open United States Bridge Championship (USBC), aka "team trials" will be held in Denver, Colorado, starting on Friday, May 6th (or perhaps Sunday, May 8th if fewer than 15 teams (including the one team that has earned a bye to the Quarterfinals) enter, and ending on Sunday, May 15th. Entries close on April 4th, with additional entries accepted through April 18th only if those entries do not change the format or schedule of the event. The Open USBC will select the USBF team for the Open World Championship in Wroclaw, Poland Sept. 3-17.

This year's Women's USBC will be held in Sacramento, CA, starting on Monday, May 30th (or Wednesday, June 1st if exactly 4 teams enter) and ending on Saturday, June 4th. Entries close on April 19th, with additional entries accepted after that date only if they improve the format of the event (realistically, that means changing an odd number of Round Robin teams to an even number). The Women's USBC will select the USBF team for the Women's World Championship in Wroclaw, Poland Sept. 3-17.
