BBO events are held on Mondays and Fridays and To play in an event you and a partner need to be registered on BBO and have some BB$ in your account
Members are requested on Mondays to register by 1.00pm in readiness for a prompt start at 1.30pm and Fridays by 9.30am in readiness for a prompt start at 10.00am.
PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER TO PLAY WITH A ROBOT WITHOUT THE DIRECTORS PERMISSION
Both you and your partner need to be online. Go to Competitive/All Tournaments and search for "Chippenham", select the Chippenham club pairs event from the list and enter your partners name. They will get an Invitation Pop up to accept and once they do, the pair of you are registered.
When the event starts BBO will automatically log you into the event and you will remain logged into it until the event finishes so if you lose connection for any reason just log back into BBO and you will rejoin the event. If you are absent for a while, the directors substitute a robot who will finish the play of the board and you will rejoin at the start of the next board.
Please introduce yourselves through the 'Chat' area, advising the opposition what your basic conventions are at the start of each round and if they ask the meaning of an 'alert' please provide an adequate explanation.
The rounds are timed and when the time is up, if you have not finished playing, play will cease and the two pairs at that table will be given an adjusted score, this is normally by the system. Please claim as soon as you can.
