Fishbein Trophy

The Fishbein Trophy is awarded to the player who wins the most number of masterpoints at the summer American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) North American Bridge Championship (NABC).


The Fishbein Trophy was donated by ACBL in memory of Sally Fishbein and in recognition of the untiring efforts of Harry Fishbein, who served as ACBL Treasurer and refused to accept the customary compensation.


Bold indicates the record of number of masterpoints won was broken.
