Welcome to Maidstone Bridge Club
INFORMATION TO MEMBERS (updated 1 January 2022)

Bridge sessions are held as follows:

F2F at the Civil Service Club - every Wednesday starting at 7.00pm.

Online - every Wednesday and Friday starting at 7.15pm.


Wearing face masks at the club
-  these are optional but not compulsory as we play bridge in an annexe to a 'Licensed Club' where masks are not mandatory;  this applies to any area of the club premises.   We will do our best to ensure social distancing and sanitiser bottles will continue to be available.

All on-line games will be held on Real Bridge 

Payments due for games played online are listed in Members' Only area

Slow play online -  Players are responsible for maintaining their own connection and slow play will have a board stopped or removed with an adjusted score of 60/40 awarded to the opposition.  

Games on Real Bridge will cost £1.50 per player per game;  payment will be due retrospectively at the end of each month and amounts due with payment advice will be posted in the Members' Only Notices at the end of each month.

Visitors -  Visitors are welcome to play at the Club - please contact Chairman beforehand.   Members may invite a friend as a guest to online sessions for one complementary session;  to action this please email learnbridge@btinternet.com with the name and email address of the guest, and state which date you wish to play.    Thereafter visitors may play for a maximum of 3 online events as a guest as a cost of £2 per player per game;  the member inviting the guest will be responsible for this payment and the cost will added to their invoice at the end of the month.  

Links to Real Bridge games are in the Members' Area - Notices.   You can still play without a webcam and audio on your system.  Links will not be sent by email so it is up to members to make sure they can log into the Members' Area and access the links.  Late arrivals can be accommodated - login, go to the lobby and notify the Director to allocate you a seat.   For players new to Real Bridge, go to the Real Bridge website where there is a great deal of information and a webcam/audio test, plus 8 board free trial sessions offered by Real Bridge. 

Members can also view again scores and hands played on Real Bridge sessions.   Links for the past few weeks are in the Members' Notices section so you should save the link on your own system if you want to keep it longer.  Click on the link which will take you to the score table, click on the board number and then the contract results - this will bring up an option to scroll through card by card.
   

Rules of bridge for online competitions

  • Players are reminded that all bridge rules must be followed in on-line competitions.   Bids must be alerted or announced as in face-to-face bridge  This includes ethical considerations such as not indicating to your partner which card to play.    Background noises should be kept to a minimum and your microphone is best muted during play unless you need to announce a bid or explain further at the request of opponents.
     
  • Opponents can only request further information at their own turn to bid or before the initial lead is made
     
  • Use of UNDO is allowed but only under standard bridge rules.  Undo is intended to be used for a misclick, not a change of mind.   Regardless, a card played must remain and cannot be undone unless it is a genuine and obvious misclick.   Use of the double click option is recommended for those who have problems with selecting the correct card.  Any queries should be referred to the Director for adjudication.
  • Claims - declarer must state his/her line of play at the same time as the claim.   Once a claim is requested, both defenders are prompted to accept or reject the claim. If they both accept, the result is recorded and the deal ends.  If either defender rejects the claim, you should call the Director to adjudicate the claim, or if everyone agrees you can also play on.  A defender is allowed under Law 68B2 to object to his partner's claim.   If play continues after a claim, the non-claiming side can see all four hands.
