Monday 23rd November

♠  RealBridge  ♣ 

Next Session: Monday 23rd November from 6.30pm for a 7pm start

To play RealBridge Click Here between 6:30 and 6:45pm, then enter your full name in the name box as it would appears in the results on this website. Enter your EBU number in the ID number box. The Session Key should be filled in automatically. Put a tick in the box for "High contrast UI" if you are colour blind. Then click "Login", this will take you into the "Lobby" from where you will be able to see the tables and seats, if you have a partner please sit at a low numbered table, if you don't have a partner please sit at the highest numbered table until you have a partner. Please don’t simply remain in the lobby, it makes it harder for us to talk to you and to get the match started on time if you are not seated. If two of you are in the same room at home, one of you needs to move otherwise, there will be a loud echo (feedback). Also, if there is a lot of background noise in the room you are in, please mute your microphone until you want to speak.
