    Anyone can play in the D11 Finals, but only pre-qualified pairs can play in the National Finals? Pre-qualified pairs 1st through 4th place in each bracket qualify, and win prize money (awarded at the NABC Final). Pre-qualification by bracket occurred in games held June - August.  If you qualified in A you can play in any flight for wich your master point total on May 6, 2014 makes you eligible.  If you are a B player qualified in A, you can play either A or B (or BOTH!)  If you are a C player qualified in A, you can play in any of the 3 flights! Pairs play in the flight determined by the MP holding of the higher ranking partner.  You can only play in the National Finals in ONE flight!
