Next "Real Bridge" Taster Tues 26th Jan

We hope all players enjoyed our first Realbridge taster session. Our next free taster session is next Tuesday 26th Jan 2pm.

All club members should have received emails about Realbridge from Fearghal our secretary. If you did not receive Fearghal's emails and you wish to play Realbridge you must contact him  secretary@dunlaoghairebridgeclub.com.

Next Tuesday morning all will receive a new email from Fearghal with a link to that day's Realbridge. At about 1.45pm click on that link and you will be brought to the Realbridge site.
Enter your full name as it appears on our club website. (You may ignore ID or enter your CBAI number there.)
Check your picture in the bottom right. If you can't see yourself, try one of the other options in the Camera box.
Look at the bottom bar and speak to check your microphone is working. If not, try one of the other options in the Microphone box.
Click Login.
Once our TD opens the game the tables will be visible. You can join your partner at a table or wait to be assigned a partner by the TD.
Realbridge is similar to BBO but with voice and video - you can see and speak to players at your table.
You cannot play on a smart phone.
You are strongly advised to check out this PLAYER GUIDE   to familiarise yourself before Tuesday.
