The ClubIAC exists as a Private Club within Bridgebase Online, the premier online Bridge site. In our club, there is no room for rude and disruptive players, quitters, or cheaters; all members are expected to be polite and respectful towards everyone.
We have a core of about 500 regular active members and a total membership of around 1000. In order to accept new members eager to join and actively improve their game by playing in the IAC, inactive members are deleted once a year. Therefore, if you want to keep your IAC membership, make sure you join any IAC event or play in club friendly games throughout the year.
TeachingWe have a number of teachers providing online Teaching Sessions each week. These sessions are free to members and cover basic and advanced bidding theory, systems ranging from Standard American to Super-Precision, and aspects of Declarer Play and Defence.
Our Teachers come from a diverse range of backgrounds but all give their teaching time free of charge.
Our more advanced members offer mentoring sessions. Both lessons by teachers and mentoring sessions are listed in the IAC Diary page.
Aims & AmbitionsOur aim is to help people in the Intermediate to Advanced range of playing ability improve their Bridge skills. We seek to provide a friendly, supportive and secure environment in which players can improve their skills with other members of a similar level. Please refer to guidelines that are expected from all members.
If you are unsure how to find IAC room at BBO flash version, pls see: http://iac-at-web-bbo.site123.me/ . We will soon make similar manual for newest bbo html version, which is necessary for all voice lessons.

CompetitionsWe currently run a number of scheduled Tournaments each week. These are directed by various TDs, but always listed in free tournaments, exclusive to IAC members, and hosted by bbo_iac. Teachers also schedule occasional Teaching Tourneys in addition to these. We award IAC Master points to best placed pairs.
Additionally, we often run spur team matches -- very popular -- where members can win tons of "Monster Points".
We also occasionally run a Pairs Ladder and a Teams Ladder. These are inactive at the moment.
