Saturday Afternoons
..... see less

A few clubs have joined forces on Saturday afternoons, to essentially create a countrywide simultaneous event every week. 
The Links online (A & B), The Links face-to-face, Orchards online, WCBU online, and Trumps face-to-face (Cape Town), all play the same hands, with all the results being combined afterwards.
An official ladder began on 3 September 2022, with the top 10 pairs countrywide earning points for their clubs. ..........

BBO Registration

♠  ♣   Registration for The Links BBO Pairs tournaments open 2 hours before each tournament. 

Pairs are encouraged to register early, and then actively log back into BBO a few minutes before the start.

If you register early and remain stationary on the site, there is a strong possibility that your device may "freeze", which may prevent you from starting the tournament.

This appears to be prevalent on Apple devices (mostly iPads).

Only a few minutes will be allowed for offline players to get back online, before the tournament will start without offline pairs. ♠  ♣
