Sanctioned Games
A sanctioned game awards master points which are recorded by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), which is located in Memphis, TN. The ACBL has several levels of recognition for individuals as they earn points. These levels are: junior master, club master, sectional master, regional master, North American bridge champion master and life master. Other achievement levels are bronze, silver, gold, diamond, emerald and platinum. Most bridge players aspire to become a life master which requires a total of 500 points.
