HOW TO JOIN AN ONLINE GAME  
Note: Registration opens 2 hours before game time.

1.    Log in to BBO. (If you don't yet have an account, see the tutorial below.)
2.    Make sure your ACBL number is correctly listed in your profile. (You can check by going to ACBL World and clicking on "Update Your ACBL Number.") 
3.    Go to Competitive.
4.    Select "ACBL Virtual Clubs."

5.    For an Alliance game, in the search box, type Alliance or the Alliance club number, 266064. Register with your partner just as you would for any BHBC game. Open games are marked “Open”. Limited games are marked with the range of masterpoints.
6.    For a BHBC game, in the search box, type BHBC or the BHBC club number, 229849.
7.    Register yourself and your partner. Your partner must be logged in to BBO. (You'll need to have bought Bridge Bucks on BBO; look for the BB$ tab in the upper right of your screen and follow the instructions.) 

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A BBO ACCOUNT

We want to see you at our virtual tables so much that our Board members are willing to work with you personally. Between us we've already instructed over 50 of our regulars on how to get playing online bridge, so if you need help with any part of the online bridge process, please click the links below to email any of the following:

CAN I VIEW MY RESULTS?

Yes, you can see your results here:

Alliance: ACBL Live for Clubs Results

BHBC: ACBL Live For Clubs Results

FURTHER INFORMATION

1.    If you have any trouble registering, please let us know immediately by emailing beverlyhillsbridgeclub@gmail.com.
2.    Both partners must be logged in a few minutes before game time. If not, the system will think you left and will unregister you. 
3.    Card fees are $8 per person. Again, you will need to buy BB$ to enter.
4.    You can only play with people who have played at BHBC in the past year. This is an ACBL requirement over which we have no control. 
5.    Even with the test-game practice we've had, this is a new setup! Tech issues are being fixed every day but please be patient as everyone gets used to it. Be friendly and help out your fellow players who may be less experienced than you.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE A BBO ACCOUNT?

The Sagamore Bridge Club in New York has produced a tutorial that will give you all the information you need! How to create a BBO account? It's covered. How to enter your ACBL number into your BBO profile? It's in there. And how to use the BBO site to find your friends and BHBC games? It's all covered in a very methodical, friendly, and easy-to-follow manner. Just click the link below, press the "play" key on the bottom, and watch!

Sagamore Bridge Club Tutorial

Of course, when you look in Virtual Bridge Clubs, you'll want to search for games marked BHBC (you can also look by our club # 299849) rather than Sagamore. 

If you have any questions that we didn't cover, please don't hesitate to ask. We want to see all our regulars playing with us again!
