Where to earn ...

Unpigmented Points

These points are awarded for success in online play and are colorless.

Black Points

These points are awarded for success in sanctioned club games and unit games. There are some special events (usually conducted at clubs) that award points where some portion of the award will be in black points and the remainder will be in another color.

Silver Points

Silver points are awarded for success in events at sectional tournaments. Progressive sectionals and Sectional Tournaments at Clubs (STaCs) also award silver points.

Red Points

Regional tournaments and regional events at NABCs award red points except for overall and section tops (see Gold Points below). Grand National Teams (GNT) events, North American Open Pairs (NAOP) events and other special games afford players the opportunity to earn red points at their local clubs.

Gold Points

Gold points are awarded for overall placings and section tops in regional and NABC events of at least two sessions. The upper masterpoint limit must be at least 750 masterpoints and applies only to the top two stratifications of stratified or stratiflighted events. In open-bracketed events (such as a bracketed knockout team), each bracket will award some percentage of the overall award as gold, irrespective of the masterpoint holding of the teams in that bracket. Gold points may be awarded for special games, such as the ACBL-wide Instant Matchpoint Game.

Platinum Points

Platinum points are awarded for NABC+ events (which are national-rated events with no upper masterpoint limit) and include the national-rated senior and women’s events.
