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.


 


The Real Bridge software is constantly being updated, so members are advised to check the Real Bridge website under the Players option to see any new updates which will help your enjoyment of the system.

 

  • Minutes of the AGM held on 1 February together with the Chairman's Report and Accounts for 2020 are available to view in the Members' Notices Area.
  • We have explored if we can manage the scoring for a handicapped ladder pairs using on line systems, but have now decided to wait until 2022 to run this competition, hopefully when the club meets again for face-to-face bridge.
     
  • We will hold no more games on BBO due to the poor attendance and the most recent one was cancelled due to insuffiicient entries.  If you would like to play on a Thursday afternoon on RealBridge please let us know at learnbridge@btinternet.com
