ACBL also has daily online bridge games on Bridge Base Online (BBO) called the “Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game.”  Go to Bridge Base Online to register. Games will be offered to link the Common Game and ACBL members from our club. The Common Game worked with BBO to increase the number of these games during the COVID-19 crisis.

If you are still not sure how to play on the BBO site, you can contact Sally Loates or other members of our club for more help.
