Please see on the left of this page a series of documents to help you with your virtual bridge experience. These documents are specifically geared to inform you of various features that can make everyone's bridge experience at CAVBC tournaments more enjoyable.
Beginners guide to BBO
If you are truly a newbie to BBO, this will help you get started and find your way around before you embark on tournaments
Improve your experience at Bridge Tournaments
There are handy tips on how to use the set up profile, greet your opponents, alert, claim functions as well as how to manage WIFI issues and disconnects. The EBU Sky Blue Book gives you the English Bridge Union slant on same thing!
How to find a partner in BBO
If you fancy a game and don't have a partner, you can look for one on the partnership desk when the tournament appears in Pending Tournaments
This explains why there are different movements (Mitchell, Howell, Swiss) on various tournaments. There's a good reason why!
Using Chat Manager in BBO PC or Tablet
Chat Manager is a means of saving a list of frequently used comments that you can use over and over. This saves you typing the same message every time you meet new partners during a game. It's very handy! Just to note, sometimes BBO is having a bad day and tells you there is an error accessing Chat Manager.
Unfortunately in this case you will have to go back to typing through the chat at start of each round but it usually rectifies itself by next game (or sometimes during the game itself!)
