The 2014 Fall NABC (North American Bridge Championships) will be held in Providence (Rhode Island, Usa) from November 27 to December 7, 2014. All bridge events will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center.
The main event of the Fall NABC is the Reisinger Board-A-Match Teams. The Reisinger Memorial Trophy was so called in 1966, in memory of the bridge philanthropist Curt H. Reisinger (1891-1964, breweries owner).
The format of the tourney is a knock-out Teams played in the Board A Match (BAM) scoring. The BAM is the simplest way to compare a result in a team of four match: any board is worth one point, and the best result wins it; a zero result gives half point to each team.
As usual the strongest Italian players are expected to entry the Reisinger Trophy. The Lavazza team from Italy will participate in Reisinger with Norberto Bocchi, Alejandro Bianchedi, Giorgio Duboin, Agustin Madala, and Zia Mahmood. Lorenzo Lauria and Alfredo Versace will play in the Cayne team with the French pair Thomas Bessis – Cédric Lorenzini.
