The Danish Bridge Federation is thrilled to present the fourth edition of the Copenhagen Bridge Invitational from the 19th – 22nd of January 2017.
Once again the strongest and most charismatic bridge players in the world will be invited to compete in a three-day imp pair tournament at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, home of the Copenhagen Casino making it the perfect venue for the event.
The event is held every second year and tournament by tournament the field has grown stronger. We will not yet reveal the participants in the 2017-edition; however we guarantee that the field will top the previous years…
Everybody is welcome to join. In 2015 we introduced the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Imp Pairs, an open 3-day event with cash prizes played simultaneously with the Copenhagen Bridge Invitational. To the surprise of the Danish Bridge Federation, the tournament turned out to be a greater success internationally than in Denmark as more than half the field were international participants with many prominent names among them.
In 2017 the event is played from the 20th to the 22nd of January and most of the participants in 2015 announced directly after the tournament that they would be back. We have asked the hotel to reserve some extra playing and hotel rooms, in case foreigners will flood Denmark. The hotel offers rooms at discounted rates and all hotel guests have free entry to the Casino Copenhagen located inside the hotel.
Players of all shapes and nationalities are invited to play next to the stars and be a part of all the glamour and excitement surrounding the CBI IV.
Spend an Evening with the Stars. For those who fantasize of playing with their favourite world champion against poker star Gus Hansen or His Royal Highness Prince Henrik of Denmark, here is the chance to see the dream come true.
Prior to the CBI the traditional pro/am takes place on Thursday the 19th of January, where all players of the main event will be available as partners sold through an online auction. Participation includes drinks & buffet prior to the event and drinks & snacks after the event in the company of bridge stars and celebrities.
To describe the pro/am we leave it to English bridge star David Gold’s words after the event in 2013:
“I shook hands with a Prince, I played bridge against Gus Hansen. I doubled him in three hearts, and they only made nine tricks although they were cold for ten. I had an incredible evening. I have never been to an event like this before.”
