These events continue to be popular and we intend to continue this series of events on Saturday afternoons. The next event is at 2:30pm on Saturday 4th July just for players rated a ‘7’ or lower on the National Grading Scheme (NGS). Although we will make every effort to accomodate late entries, please enter by 8am Saturday 4th if it is your first time in this event - your details need to be entered in the Kent Virtual club and your organisers are often playing in the 10am Kent duplicate. We will be charging BB$3 to compete in our event which is the minimum allowed by BBO and equates to about £2.50.
Whilst we particularly want those who have learnt bridge in the last couple of years to play, the event is open to anyone of the appropriate grade.
This is a great opportunity to come and play bridge with new people outside of your club or class but of about the same standard as yourself.
If you do not know what your NGS grade is, you can find it on the English Bridge Union (EBU) website in ‘My EBU’. Alternatively you can email KCBAEast@gmail.com and we will let you know what it is. It is your grade on Wednesday 1st Julu that will determine your eligibility but do not wait until then to find out your current grade.
The event will be held on Bridge Base Online (BBO). Click for details of how to obtain a free BBO Username. You can then practice a bit for free on BBO either with your partner or other friends or in ‘Solitaire’ games with robots so you are familiar with the interface.
Please click to enter the event and submit BBO Usernames etc. You will then receive instructions on the morning of the event about how to join the event. It will be 18 boards long and will last about 2 hours 15 minutes. Masterpoints will be awarded and of course you may improve your NGS grade.
If you want more information about the event or want to play but do not have a partner please email KCBAEast@gmail.com.
