Think outside the box! We came up with three unusual reasons for playing in the Keohane Individual in Newton, MA, on the first weekend in January. Investigate them here.
New Card in the Wallet: Congratulations to NEBC President Mark Aquino, now an Emerald Life Master, and all the others who achieved a new rank in November. The complete list is here.

National Champion! Congratulations to Phyllis Fireman, whose team completed its wire-to-wire victory in the Women's Board-a-Match on Monday in the NABC in Phoenix. This is the fourth national title for Phyllis.
Several New England players have made it to the last day of the Keohane North American Swiss Teams. In the Reisinger Paul Fireman's team is tied for second behind Monaco, and Doug Doub's team is in seventh place. Complete results and the Bulletin can be found here.
The finals of the Reisinger will be on the Vugraph on BBO on Sunday beginning at 3 p.m.
Expert Advice: In this week's article Harold Feldheim demonstrates how to avoid taking the poison when you are the declarer. The complete archive is available through the "Learn from the Experts" tab.
Busy as ...: The "B's Needs" committee, which aims to boost attendance at tournaments, has released its minutes from the meeting in Mansfield. The document also includes a roster of its members and comprehensive lists of its recommendations at both the regional and club level as well as who was assigned each task and what has been accomplished so far. You can read the reports here or through the tab at left.
The INCrowd: Pages for intermediates, novices, and newcomers are now an integral part of NEBridge.org. The tab for the I/N pages (you may need to scroll down to see all of the options) is the portal to a wealth of information about tournament bridge in
Conventions: The ACBL allows districts to set their own rules on allowable conventions at their regional events. Current District 25 rules on conventions are the standard but not universal ones throughout the ACBL, that mid-chart conventions are allowed in Flight A, Flight A/X, and top brackets of knockouts so long as all teams are above the 1500 masterpoint level, but not in Flight A/B or lower brackets of knockouts.
We strive to keep the website informative and easy to navigate. Please “Contact Us” if you have any questions or suggestions regarding District 25, the site, or anything else.
Thank you for visiting.
