ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION

Collection of Annual Subscription

After discussion, Belper Bridge Club Committee has decided to postpone the collection of subscriptions until such time when we could return to “normal” bridge and hold our AGM. The situation will be reviewed periodically.

The Committee has also decided that anyone who was a member of Belper Bridge Club in April 2020 will remain a member until an AGM can be held.

FINDING A PARTNER

FINDING A PARTNER

If you are interested in playing bridge either on Wednesday afternoon or Friday evening but have not got a partner, the BBO site has a facility called “Partnership Desk”.

The option is open only to those peope who are on the Belper players list and becomes available 2 hours before the game starts.

Log on to BBO and find the session in the same way as you would if you had a partner, you will be given the option of “Partnership Desk” on the top bar. Click and add your user name. Now wait and see if anyone else is looking for a partner.

Our virtual bridge sessions start at 6.30pm every Friday and 2.00 pm every Wednesday.

If you have already played in one of our sessions you will be automatically eligible to log in for future sessions.  Log in any time from 2 hours before the session starts.

Results for the night will be posted on the website as soon as possible and will count for NGS and Master Point purposes.  We are allowing 8 minutes per hand.

To add a little extra fun we will have Virtual Slammaster and Challenge Trophy Competitions going as well. Look under Competitions

These are really friendly sessions. Introduce yourselves at the begining of the round and ‘chat’ if you have spare time.

HAND OF THE WEEK

I thought this more interesting than the pretty much universal slam bid by east wests on board 11

On a spade lead the machine says you should be restricted to 10 tricks whatever the contract.

I will not quarrel with Natasha's removal to 5C, I actually think I might have gone 6H?

I contemplated 6C knowing that 5C was not likely to be a good result but those 2 diamonds stared me in the face and said keep quiet!

What happened at your table?

REGISTRATION FOR ONLINE CLUB GAMES

When does registration open for a club game?

Registration opens 2 hours before the start time. Both members of a partnership need to be online in order to register. You will need sufficent BBO $ in advance $4 ( 3.50) per person, don't leave it till the last minute They can then logoff but need to be back in time for the start of the tournament. The players find the tournament and register as follows:

How do we register for a club game?

  • Log on to BBO
  • Click Competitive under Play or Watch Bridge
  • Then click All Tournaments
  • In the Search Box (above where it says “Entries”) type BELPER
  • Click on the event in the list
  • Enter the BBO user name of your partner
  • Click invite. Your partner will also need to be logged on to BBO in order for them to receive your invite.

If you receive a message “This tournament is private - only select usernames are allowed to participate” then you need to contact your club to be added to the list. Possibly your username is in the list but has been misspelt.

ALERTING

ALERTING WHEN PLAYING ONLINE

The person who makes an alertable bid, alerts her/his bid. That is he/she clicks the alert button before making the bid. Her/his partner does not see the alert, whilst the opposition do, hence no unauthorised information is passed on. The opposition can now click on the explain box to find out the meaning of the bid from the bidder again unseen by his/her partner.

See links below for self-alerting these are very clear as to alerting action we should take when playing bridge online.
