European Bridge League

Administering the Mind Sport BRIDGE in Europe

The European Bridge League measures achievement in tournament play through the general concept of Master Points.

    • The EBL Master Points Plan describes how European Master Points (EMPs) are awarded at the various tournaments.


    • The latest player Classification provides a list of the top European Master Points holders. Both a Historic (awards since 1980; deceased players included) and a Current (awards over the past decade; deceased players not included) record are provided.


  • The EBL has a Master Points Committee which initiates changes and determines all other matters arising under the EBL Master Points Plan. The Committtee is responsible also for the calculation of the Master Points; therefore, all matters pertaining to Master Points, whether on regulation or calculation, should be addressed directly to the Committee.
