The Helen Shanbrom Ace of Clubs is an annual contest that recognized achievement at the club level. Only masterpoints won at clubs are counted for these races. Eligibility for each level of achievement is determined by a player's masterpoint holding at the beginning of the year. The totals exclude points won at Sectional Tournaments, Club (STaCS) and online masterpoint games.
This race includes all masterpoints won at ACBL sanctioned tournaments and clubs but not online points. Race updates are posted by the ACBL around the 6th of each month.
