Play and Learn

 Play and Learn


Would you like to enhance your bidding, playing and defense bridge skills?  A Play and Learn game is an excellent way to accomplish this. You even have an opportunity to earn masterpoints in these ACBL sanctioned games.

The fee is $5 for on-line and F2F play.

The BBO game combines playing a hand on Bridgebase (BBO) with a Zoom discussion by an Adobe instructor. 

The fee is $5, paid on BBO when you sign-in for the game. For each game, the timer is set at 12 minutes per board with either two or three boards per round. These 12 minutes will include time for play and discussion of each hand. The discussion takes place at the end of each hand.

To find this game, go to BBO, on the home page select Virtual Clubs, and you should see the game listed two hours ahead of the game start.  If you need a partner, click the game name and you can add yourself as needing a partner - or selecting one if someone is already listed as needing a partner.  If no partners are available you can select a Robot to play with - but wait to do this at the last minute in case someone else needs a last minute partner.

To play in Doug Couchman's Play and Learn game for people with less than 750 masterpoints

How much in advance you need to login depends on your BBO and Zoom skills.  With BBO, you must to be ready to start the game at the designated start time. If you are light on BBO and or Zoom experience, 1/2 hour in advance may not be enough time.  If you are an accomplished BBO and Zoomer, 10 minutes may be fine.   

Once you are logged on, make sure you stay active - as BBO has been known to log people off that it views as inactive. A suggestion is to chat with your BBO partner to make sure BBO keeps you active.

You will need to stay logged on to Zoom throughout the game, switching to Zoom at the end of every hand and going silent during play.   

To join the session on Zoom,  click this link:   or you can use this message id to join:  512 934 1566. 

If you have any difficulties, you can text 512 934-1566  or  email
