Robots for Half Tables
Robots for Half Tables

Half Tables Eliminated Forever

The joint efforts of Mike Giesler, David Rose, and Jay Whipple of The Common Game have made half tables at club games a thing of the past. You can just use two robots from the online website BBO to fill in anytime you have a half table.

The setup and procedure is simple. Upload the day's hand record file to BBO, start a playing table on BBO using those hands, and place two tablets or laptops on one of your regular tables to become your sitout table. When the sitout pair arrives at the table, they play the appropiate hands against two BBO robots. Scoring the hand results is the same as at all other tables - entered into Bridgemates or your standard reporting method.

The experiment has been a big success and the players love it. Interested? Click Here for an article that gives all the details.
