Saturday, March, 29, 2008:
Pro-Am charity event.

On Saturday, March 29, 2008, the American Bridge & Social Club conducted its annual Pro-Am charity event. Arguably, it is one of the most prestigious duplicate bridge games run at a club level in Chicagoland. Thanks to the great PR effort of the club owner, Ron HELMAN, the best players in Chicago were invited, and their expertise was greatly appreciated by the new-to-bridge players, who had a rare chance to have an expert as a partner.

The money-raising procedures are worth mentioning. Names of internationally acclaimed experts like Claude VOGEL, Jack OEST, George JACOBS, Jerry GOLDFEIN and others were posted on a wall ahead of time and non-Life-Masters had opportunities to buy a choice of partners. In other words, experts were “sold” to the highest bidders. Each year, thousands of dollars are raised for White Sox charities at these events. This year was no exception.

Serge BONDAR (right) , director of the Academy of Intellectual Games(AoIG), was the featured Pro in Pro-Am: BONDAR-KADLECK dual.

Usually, competition in a Pro-Am event is very intense, and scoring 8-9 % above 50% will place a player on a leader board. Year 2008 had produces similar results as two pairs (East-West direction: Pat GOLDFEIN - David GOLPER, and North-South: Serge BONDAR - Denise KADLECK) appeared to be tied at the top. However, after a score correction on board #8, where the score for 3♠ by North making 4 was erroneously entered as 140 instead of 170, it was determined that the North-South pair had scored 58.63% and emerged as a clear winner; yes, just one overtrick usually makes a big difference in a duplicate bridge event.

AoIG contributed to this event in another way as well by conducting a survey consisting of just the following single question:

Would you be more likely to participate in our next Pro-Am event if the money raised were given to
 ○ charitable organizations
 ○ the top 50% of the players as prize money?
(check one only)

Surprisingly, 75% of the participants marked “charitable organizations”; so, we asked those we could reach for some clarifying comments. The responses surprised us even more. Most players‘ preference to give the money to charities was not for the better cause or tax deduction considerations, but because they expressed fears that playing bridge for prize money would bring “cheaters” into the game, making it unpleasant for others to participate.

Well, we see this as a very reasonable concern, though it certainly would not be unique to bridge. It’s sad to recognize that cheating is endemic to humankind and occurs in every culture, large and small (though, curiously, some cultures suffer less than others).  Cheating occurs in virtually every sport at virtually every level. But, NO SPORT that we’re aware of, except US Duplicate Bridge, has decided to cope with this problem by removing itself from prize money competitions.

Of course, there are some people for whom the very thought of being cheated or having something stolen from them is so unbearable that they would go an extra mile to completely eliminate it. However, there is only one way to get rid off that fear -- not to have anything worth-while for others to steal. Needless to say, that is not a mainstream approach of citizens in our society. That is why we have locks installed in the front doors of our houses, and that is why we lock our cars when we park them on a street.
New car buyers may be very afraid that their cars might be stolen, but they still don’t decide to drive rusty old cars just to avoid theft.

Now, to get back to bridge. There is a far more frightening reality for us to recognize and face: duplicate bridge cannot grow, or even survive, as a sport without monetary incentives for its top players.
When outside observers (kibitzers in bridge terminology) are watching currently active bridge players (sadly, a rapidly shrinking base) intensely playing for hours, competing for the few top spots in a final standing with NO MONEY attached to reward that achievement, they probably don’t view them as idealists who are front-runners in attempting to create cheating-free sports environments. What they are really thinking, we don’t know; and perhaps this is a good subject for another survey.  What we have learned for sure, however, is that right now, almost nobody wants to join us for a great game of bridge!

At AoIG we have constantly thinking of new, effective ways of protecting wonderful ancient traditions of duplicate bridge, as well as adapting to the new era in sport competition, using available technological advances.

We’re confident, that with support of the game’s most loyal followers we can make playing bridge more exciting than ever. If after reading this article, you would like to contribute to this effort in any way or capacity, please write us at bridge@AoiGames.com or call 847-778-5259.
