  DBC Virtual Games on BBO

April 2, 2020

Dear Friends and Players,

Starting Friday, April 3, Duncan Bridge Center will be listed as a club on BBO. There will be daily game at 9:45 AM for 499ers and an Open game at 10:15 AM PDT. These games will help support the club. Entry is $6.00 for 18 boards at 6 minutes a board. You will earn full points as if you were at the club.

Some tips to get started if you're new to BBO:  Tutorial Video Click Here

1.  Immediately create an account on Bridge Base Online 
2.  Update your ACBL #--Do not use the letter designation if you are a life master, use the corresponding number (this update will take 24 hours and is a must to register in the DBC Virtual Games.)
3.  Deposit through PayPal or a credit card to your "BBO$" account (I recommend $18 to get you started; this will give you 3 games.)
4.  Click on the menu item "Competitive Games" no earlier than 2 hours before the start of the game to register.
5.  Both you and your partner need to be signed onto BBO to register.
6.  You can find partners by going to the DBC website and look under the menu item: DBC BBO Player Roster

For seasoned BBO players, you must be using the latest version of BBO to access the "Virtual Clubs" tab.

We will look for your feedback. This is a work in progress. BBO is very flexible and we can customize our game opportunities to keep our players in the game and to connect socially with our friends and partners! We will appreciate your feedback to hartin.bev@gmail.com

Sean Lui will be directing our games; enter his BBO handle as a "follow"; his user name is: VACB263830. He will be able to answer limited questions. My BBO handle is: beverly h

See you on BBO!

Beverly Hartin, President
and the CVBF Board of Directors
