BROXBOURNE BBO

Our  online events will run on BBO on Tuesday  afternoons at 2.pm  and Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm.

  • FIRST thing to do is get a partner for the event ( contact sheela.evans@btinternet.com & a partner will be found of similar skill level 

  • BUY SOME BB$ dollars..this can be bought using the BBO$ tab at the top of the screen , purchase an amount ( I suggest £10 worth to get started) ask for it to 'roll over' if you  like then it is like an Oyster card , a pre-paid card that 'tops up' once it runs out .

  • Then you are set for the first game

  • The process to enter on the day  is as follows:

  •  Register for the tournament,, Go to VIRTUAL Clubs,  Then scroll down  to 'EBU Clubs'  

  • Scroll down to' Broxbourne Pairs ' ( or type Brox in the search box at the top) Click on Brobourne  then you get the box come up asking you to invite your partner , fill your partners Username in there , & invite them to play with you . a small yellow box in the bottom right hand corner of the screen will show you if your partner has accepted , or you may get the message, 'Your invitation has timed out'  if so check your partner is online , then if they are ,just repeat the invite again , keep watching until you get that yellow message bottom right of your  screen to make sure they have accepted & you are registered 

  • BOTH players need to be online  at the same time  to  register, once you have registered  if you are not going to sit in front of the computer then  log off from BBO, ( as BBO logs you off if you are inactive for about 20-30 mins)  after that  both players need to  log in again  10-15 mins  before the start of the tournament, and BBO will then seat them automatically

  • As a precaution about 10 mins before the game starts , click on the Broxbourne Club link & it should tell you that you are registered for the event, now you know that your registration went through OK 

  • You will need to know the Username of your partner to register them as your partner . 

  • A good idea is to make your partners a 'friend'  so you know when they come online . How you do this is 
  • Click on the 'People' tab on the right of your screen, click on 'search at the top of the screen,  put your partners Username in the search tab at the bottom of the screen, a list will come up , click on your partners name & when their profile comes up , use the tab that says 'relationship' to change it to 'follow' this means that you will see everytime they are online 

  To follow the scoring , click on the 'HISTORY' tab on the right  hand side of your screen, to see what happened when others in the club played it, click on 'Other Tables' at the top of the score card , when all the tables have played the board you will have a final score & % for the board 

If we have a half Table, Gary our TD will use a pair of ROBOTS , these play a 2/1 system & every bid they make will be explained to you as they bid . They play very fast as their bidding is automatic , do not be put off by this take your time . You do not have to self alert any of your bids when playing against 2 robots . They may win but they do not count for mp's etc 

 Contact me with any problems or if you a need partner , the MOST important thing is to have fun, we will be playing only against our local clubs players EVERYONE is new to this, so don't worry ask for help Gary our TD will help you , & I hope you all enjoy playing in our 'Virtual Club'
