Reisinger Knockout Teams

The Reisinger Knockout Teams, one of the most prestigious events on the tournament calendar in the early days of contract bridge, was first contested in 1930 at the Eastern States Regional in New York. It was the last important knockout event in the United States to replace total point scoring with IMP scoring, doing so in 1965. The Reisinger Trophy was donated by Curt H. Reisinger in 1930.
