There are two types of tournaments on BridgeHit
1. Free tournament
A tournament is a certain time of period, normally one day.
The classification is done by comparing the sessions started and finished within a tournament.
At the end of the tournament the classification is based on the session comparison started and finished within the certain tournament.
There is no limitation of sessions played within one tournament. Based on this, one user may win several prizes in that tournament.
BridgeHit free individual tournaments are every day, starting at 08:00 Central European Time (CET) and ending at 07:00 CET on the next day (02:00 EST -01:00 EST on the next day).
This means that all BridgeHit players could participate in a tournament. All they need is to hit the Play Now button.
By playing in the free tournaments you can collect silver points which can be later converted into gold points. You can use the gold points to play in our paid tournaments and earn some hard cash. The number of silver points you will get is equal to the IMP balance of all your sessions during a free tournament. For example, if you have played three sessions with results +15, +8 and -6 IMPS, you will receive 17 silver points (= 15+8- 6). In case your overall result for the tournament is negative you will receive no silver points but you will keep all points accumulated until that moment.
2. Gold tournament
A gold tournament is a paid individual tournament . Go to the main page to see our starting times. It consists of 12 boards and follows exactly the same rules as a normal session in a free tournament. In order to participate in a gold tournament, you need to pay with gold points which can either be purchased or converted from silver points.
In order to enhance player experience Bridgehit will offer special tournaments based on minimum rating. You will be able to register to play in these tournaments only if your Bridgehit rating is above a certain value - normally > 50 %. This will give the opportunity for good players to play undisturbed by people who are playing at a lower level (they are welcome to play in the free tournaments). We also plan paid gold tournaments with prize funds with a minimum rating requirement."
