Tuesday a.m. Gentle Session Withdrawn

The Online Gentle session on Tuesday mornings
has been withdrawn because of very low atttendance

Attending without a Partner

Players sometimes come along to face-to-face sessions without a Partner,
in the hope that someone else will be similarly placed, or that the Director will partner them.
Members may do that, but we do not guarantee a game for them.
If there is no other spare player available, the Director may play,
but will not do so if it creates a half table or difficulty with the movement.
If you decide to come along without a partner you must arrive in good time and be prepared to play
with anyone else seeking a partner.

Please note that we have a partner finding service listed on our website; Please check if this lists
another player seeking a partner for the session that you are interested in.

Register Online in Good Time

Please Login Early for Online Games

Please register for online games in good time.  Preferably 10 but at least 5 minutes before starting time is appropriate.
Last minute logins cause  difficulties for the Tournament Director and might not be accepted

Names Please!

This is a reminder that the Club expects that everyone playing must show their full name
(First and Surname) in their profile.

As a Club site, members should be able to see who they are playing against.
May we remind some of our newer players and a few more experienced ones that they should comply.

Undos in Bidding

Undos in Bidding
The Club now allows Undos for misclicks in the bidding, but not in the play.
As soon as you realise that you have misclicked you may ask for an Undo. 
The opponents will usually agree, in wh
ich case you may change your bid without penalty. 
If an opponent objects, or in case of doubt, the Director should be called.
This brings us into agreement with most other Clubs

Please note that Undos are permitted only for genuine misclicks. 
You may not ask for an Undo if you realise that you made the wrong bid.

Undos are still not permitted for misclicks during the play

Burnham Bridge Club are continuing to disallow all Undos

Standby Pairs Wanted
We are grateful to the members who act as Standby Pairs, to avoid the need to have robots.
As always, we are seeking volunteers to fill in gaps in the list for the next few weeks.

Please have a look at the email which has been sent out and let Evelyn know if you can help
