Masterpoints are to ACBL members like medals and trophies are to an athlete: they reward your success at the table — while competing with members at your level — and help measure your progress towards mastering the game of bridge.

As you improve your skills and experience, you'll start collecting masterpoints more rapidly. Focus on your game and you will be promoted to the next Masterpoint Rank in no time.

Challenge yourself to become an ACBL Life Master! Start earning black points at the club and unpigmented points online. Soon you'll be ready for tournaments where silver, red, gold and platinum points wait for you.

Through the exclusive MyACBL portal you can:

  • Track your masterpoints easily
  • Know exactly what you need to advance to the next level with our Rank-up Helper
  • Compare your progress with the entire ACBL membership
