Wireless Scoring Practice
Wireless Scoring Practice

You can practice using a wireless scoring system by clicking on this article link. It is setup for a 2 1/2 table match with all the results for Table 1 removed.

You first have to tell the system at which table you are sitting, so press the "1" to choose table one, the only table not already allocated. The system will then ask for the names of the players sitting at your table. As the missing pair starts at this table, you only have to enter two names. Use the drop down menu to select some names. The system will warn you if you choose a name already in use. Once the names have been entered the system will display the current round and the players at the table. As this is the sitout round there are no boards to play and you have to click on the OK button to go to the next round. On doing this you'll see the pair names and round displayed change to reflect the movement and now the list of boards to be played in this round are shown. (The movement has been set up to only play two boards a round for demonstration purposes).


Assuming you start with board 5, click on it and the contract level is requested and a set of buttons with all the possible options is presented. A 'P' indicates a passed out board and '#' a board that is not scored/played. Assume the contract was 3 NT + 1 E with the ace of spades led. Press '3' and the system will request the suit of the contract, then the declarer, rank and suit of the card lead. As each button is pressed it loads the selected value into the contract buttons and displays the required input and options. You can edit any of the selections by pressing the relevant contract button. When all the required data is filled in the score will be displayed and North/South asked to confirm the result by pressing 'OK'. Then East/West is asked to confirm the score and once this is done the score is stored, the traveller is displayed and the next board can be selected.

This is unlikely to be the scoring system to be used at St Julian's, but it will give you a feel for how easy it is to use a wireless system. Any comments or defects gratefully received, haffread@gmail.com.

(This wireless scoring system uses the standard web browser to provide the user interface, so what you see on the article link is what runs on the smart phone or tablet so you can run that on your smart phone directly to see how it would look. Be warned I've not tried it with Internet Explorer, so that might not work).

This software is part of the Knave Bridge Scorer, an open source duplicate bridge scoring suite.

Wireless Scoring
Wireless Scoring

Because of the success of the implementation of Electronic Scoring at Otford Bridge Club and as we now have a means of financing the necessary equipment it is possible to introduce it earlier than anticipated at St Julians, possibly in June. To again re-assure those who have not used the equipment before, no knowledge of IT systems is required other than how to use a keyboard, 5 minutes training is all that is needed for this.
