Bulletin

The Competitions area has been restored to the menu. BridgeWebs is unable to handle corrected game score reports, and so the Competitions lists are not perfectly accurate. However, they will enable you to see approximately where you stand in the mp races. The authoritative list is the one that is posted on the bulletin board at the club.

Welcome to the Jacksonville School of Bridge
Double Silver Points Week Update

The Sunday (Aug 2) open game has been canceled due to lack of interest. St. Augustine has an open game in that same time slot (12:45 Sunday). If you are not sure if you are on the list of St. Augustine players, contact Alta Tanner (astanner1@comcast.net).

Next week (starting August 3) we're back to the normal schedule with an added 299er game:

  • Monday, open game 12:45;  New 299er game, 12:50
  • Wed, 499er game, 12:45

BBO Virtual Club Games Update

Effective Monday, June 15, the revised JSOB virtual game schedule is as follows:

  • Monday: open pairs game at 12:45
  • Wednesday: 499er pairs game at 12:45 

This means no more Friday games; it also means that the Wednesday game is limited to 499ers only. The limited game is an experiment, so if you like it, please play and support it!

You can sign up a little less than 2 hours in advance. In order to play in these games, every player needs to have played at JSOB at least once during the past year. The cost is $5 for a regular game and $6 for silver point games. To register, log in to BBO as usual and go to Virtual Clubs under Featured Areas. Our club is JSOB 117960.  Be sure you have enough dollars in your BBO account to sign up. Like Support Your Club games, these Virtual Club games benefit our club, so get a partner and let's play bridge!

Support JSOB by Playing Bridge on BBO

Are you playing bridge online? Did you know that Support Your Club (SYC) games on BBO have the following advantages:

  • part of your fee ($4 out of the $6 entry fee) goes back to JSOB; and
  • you can earn real ACBL mps, that count toward rank advancement. (Most other BridgeBase “points“, unless they are specifically in ACBL games, are uncolored and do not count).

In just two weeks in March, Support Your Club games on BBO generated over $900 for JSOB! So, grab your favorite partner (or any other ACBL member) and start playing, seven days a week at 10 AM, 5:10 PM, and/or 7:30 PM.

Playing as a partnership in a Support Your Club game on BBO is just a few clicks away:

  • Go to https://www.bridgebase.com/v3/  and create and then log into your account.
  • If you are new to BBO, read BBO’s instructions online. “Other useful links” at the bottom of the page tell you how to update your ACBL # and purchase BB$, which are needed to play in ACBL games and get masterpoints.
  • To play in a Support Your Club game, click on “ACBL World”.
  • Click on “Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game”. These games are available for registration starting a few minutes after 8:00 AM, 3:10 PM, and 5:30 PM, for games that start 2 hours later. When the game pops up, click on it, then invite your partner. You and your partner must both be online at that moment, and you must know your partner’s BBO screen name. The 5:10 and 7:30 games fill up quickly, so it’s best to be online when the game opens for registration.
  • After your partner accepts and the row on which the game is shown turns yellow, you are registered. You can log out and log back in just before the game to play. When the game starts, as long as you are logged in, it will pop up on your screen.

Charles Goren's Philosophy

"You should play bridge for fun. The instant you find yourself playing the game for any other reason, you should pack it up and go on to something else."

-- Charles H. Goren 1901 - 1991

Founded in 1993, the Jacksonville School of Bridge attracts a congenial mix of players of all experience levels.
Come join us for a friendly and challenging game of bridge at a full service club!
