North American Pairs Electronic Game Possible. Win Gold!

There has been some discussion of possibly holding a session of the North American Pairs Championship using Bridge Base Online (BBO) on a tablet or laptop. The session would be the same as going to the session held at a physcial locality but without the time and expense of traveling to Fort Lauderdale. Those particpating would need to be familiar with using BBO on their personal table, laptop or smart phone. You would be playing with your partner against other participants across the United States without ever leaving Gainesville.

Here is the text of an email I received on September 6, 2016 from the folks at TheCommonGame.com (who would be running this program."

Hi,

 

We are reaching out to see if your club has any interest in participating in the NAP online/tablet game at the club on October 29th. Players will have the opportunity to participate in the NAP event by going to your club and playing through BBO on their computer or tablet. If so, how many tables would you be able to generate in Flights A, B, and C?

The NAP Strats are as follows:

A = 0- infinity

B = 0-2500

C - NLM up to 500

If we are going to try and participate we need to provide them with some numbers. Gainesvill help several sessions of Club Level qualifying games in July and August. If you finished in the top 505 of any of those sessions you are eligible to particpate in the next round.

Here is what you need to do:

1. If you are eligible and think you would be interested in participating either as a partnership or indivually, send me an email expressing your interest with your name(s). My email address is ericgtaylor@comcast.net. Please send this to me no later than October 1, 2016. You can also give me a written note saying that you would like to participate. Don't tell me! Give me a note!

If there is enough interest I will try and get us approved to use this futuristic system.
