Do Online Masterpoints Count Towards Life Master?

Points won in non-vClub games, such as daily games found in ACBL World, are "non-pigmented". These points contribute to some degree toward Life Master and other levels, but there are black, silver and red/gold/platium requirements that must be met.

For example, points needed members joining after January 1, 2010 to achieve Life Master:
  • 500 Masterpoints.
  • At least 75 are black.
  • At least 75 are silver.
  • At least 100 are red/gold/platinum, of which 50 or more are gold/platinum.

Here's the requirements for all advancement levels.

Non-pigmented points do not count towards annual Mini-McKinney or Ace of Clubs awards.

Unit 550 Eliminates Premium Game Extra Fees
