Implementing and Socializing Positive Values of Bridge Game
through National Inter University Bridge Champhionship
and Electro Cup Bridge Tournament

 

INTRODUCTION

The game of bridge is the most exciting game in the world. It’s easy to learn but takes a while to play well; it’s lots of fun and a great challenge! Unlike other games and sports, each bridge hand takes about 5 to 10 minutes to play from beginning to end. The action, the pressure, the strategies and emotions, the instantaneous sense of achievement (or defeat) is a wonderful “high”. And anyone may compete. Old, young, rich, poor, man, woman, healthy or disabled – all compete against one another at an equal level. “You’re never too old to learn,” said 90-year-old Boris Schapiro, a champion from England.

Young people will learn the value of ethics, good behavior and poise. Bridge game strongly related with business philosophy, banking, scientist, and also an educated game. Because of the nature of the game and its simple requirement, the game only needs four people and one deck of card to play, playing bridge is one of favorite extra curricular activity in many universities. In University of Indonesia, bridge is not just a game to simply have fun with. It’s even more than an extra curricular activity. There has been annual bridge tournament arranged by Department of Electrical University of Indonesia that has been acknowledged by Indonesian Contract Bridge Association (Gabungan Bridge Seluruh Indonesia – GABSI). The tournament initiated at 1978, open for all universities in Indonesia and also non student bridge players. This tournament is known as Turnamen Bridge Elektro Cup (Electro Cup Bridge Tournament). One of the objective of this tournament is to accommodate the new talented bridge players in University of Indonesia, especially from Electrical Engineering, so they can improve their skills in a real bridge game environment.

Many bridge players from University of Indonesia accomplished national and even world level bridge achievements. From all five National Inter University Bridge Championships since 1993, University of Indonesia team achieved 4 silver medals and 1 gold medals in team event. In international level, University of Indonesia team was representing Indonesia for 1st Inter University World Bridge Championship in Maastricht-Netherland, August 2000. University of Indonesia team ranked 10th in that event, best amongst Asian teams.

With all achievements and tradition that University of Indonesia already have, we believe that in this year National Inter University Bridge Champhionship in Batam, it should be a modest target to take the champhionship trophy again to University of Indonesia and The Tournament Bridge Electro’s Cup as one of the event to step forward to the future.
