CBC Online Bridge Games: 04 July 2021

Until further notice, CBC will hold the following online events (on BBO unless noted otherwise):

MONDAYS,  10am: cost BB$3

TUESDAYS, 7:30pm: on Real Bridge

THURSDAYS, 10am: free

SATURDAYS, 10am: free

   The Tuesday evening games will run as MP Pairs for 11 weeks (22 June - 31 August); for the Abdelmoniem Trophy.   

   A pairs best 6 results will determine the winners.   

Our Friday afternoon game on Real Bridge has been suspended due to low attendance.

The times are fixed, but the directors may change - we'd be pleased to receive offers to direct.  It's not difficult, there are no bids out of turn, no insufficient bids, no leads out of turn, no revokes.  The main thing you have to do is adjust scores when a table times out: the system can show you the record of the bidding and play so far, and a double-dummy analysis too if you ask for it.

If you want to play and haven't played a CBC event on BBO before, please let Paul Barden ( have your BBO id, so that it can be added to the list of players who can join our events.

CBC Online Bridge: 9 April 2020

We have tried running sessions on BBO at all our usual times for "face to face" bridge for club members only.  However, the huge influx of new players on BBO means their servers are strugling to cope at busy times.  We are not permitted to run our games at peak times - 11am to 4pm New York time - thus our evening sessions are unlikely to happen.  We will experiment with daytime sessions on different days to see what proves popular.  Keep an eye on the calendar and your email for latest information.

If you are not familliar with BBO there are numerous guides to help get you started.  See this link from the Berwick Club. To restrict access to club members only, we need to know your BBO name before, ideally days before, you want to play your first session.  Once you are on the "include list" you should be fine.  Peter (pgrice)

Coronavirus Update: 15 March 2020


You will be aware of many cancellations nationally and internationally aimed at slowing the spread of coronavirus.

Today the EBU issued new advice, postponing various national events, and advising counties to postpone county events.

Its advice to clubs was less forthright, but it's clear that it sees bridge events generally as being too risky to continue with for the time being.

The Cambridge Club Committee has discussed this urgently, and has decided, with regret, that we should stop meeting face to face to play bridge, with immediate effect.

We regret also the short notice, but it did not seem right to take the risk of continuing for a few more days.

We are pursuing the possibility of holding club sessions online.  Of course, we are not the only club to have this idea, and online providers are swamped, so it may take a little while to get this going.

In the meantime, we suggest that you register with BridgeBaseOnline, at - it's free.  You can easily and immediately play with friends, comparing your scores with anyone else who's played the never-ending stream of boards provided.  You're welcome to use the club mailing lists to set up online games.

My user name on BBO is aardv - do say hello there.

The Committee will keep you informed of developments during the period of suspension, and we look forward to meeting again in the future, with renewed enjoyment of playing face-to-face.

There will be decisions to be made about those club competitions which would normally continue until the AGM.  Our inclination is to provide some sessions to allow the season to be completed, but we will have to see what the practicalities are when the period of suspension ends. 

With best wishes on behalf of all the Committee
