    *4 is Enough is a limited pairs game. Eligible pairs must have a maximum of 4 points where players are assigned a number base on their current masterpoints: 
    0-400 MPs are 1;   401-1500 MPs are 2;  1501 MPs and Up are 3. The total number of the pair must be 4 or less.   So two 1's may play together, a 1 and a 2 may play together, two 2's may play together, but a 2 and a 3, or two 3's may not play together. 

    Mike Burns will run a live partnership desk for CBA U750/1000 games.  If you need a partner for those games contact:

    D11D11 Bridge Teacher Zoom Seminars -- Free!
    Interested in teaching bridge to beginners? Mr. Siraj Haji will lead free seminars to get you started to teach bridge online.

    • BridgeBee – Interactive Bridge lessons for every level and a supplemental tool for teachers.
    • Shark Bridge – Online teaching platform for up to 100 tables.
    • Other teaching and self-improvement apps.
    • Marketing / Recruiting and Networking opportunities and discussions.
    • ACBL Marketing – Resource Center and how to engage ACBL Marketing in your campaigns.
