Quick Hands 3 - Short Club and No Drumpf

WILL MBC RE-OPEN?

The simple answer is "definitely but not just yet".

We understand that a few clubs have taken the surprising decision to re-open.

We believe, however, that this is extremely unwise and goes against current EBU and governmental recommendations regardless of how many additional safety features are in place.

The safety of our members, guests and staff remain our absolute priority and we will not take any risks to endanger anyone.

We are, of course, constantly reviewing this situation and rest assured that we will be together again as soon as it is safe to do so.

REVOLUTIONARY SCREENS

Signs of things to come maybe?.......or maybe not!!!

For all our members who have already switched or are considering moving to 5 Card Majors and 2 over 1 Game Forcing, this book by Neil Rosen is perhaps the closest to the systems taught at Manchester Bridge Club.

It is easy to read, structured and offers many quizzes and examples to test your understanding. Highly recommended!!

If you would like a copy please contact David so we might organize a bulk order from Manchester Bridge Club and perhaps a better price.

CORONAVIRUS

We have had to take the unwanted decision to close the Club until further notice.

Please look after yourselves and each other during this difficult time and keep in touch by phone and email even if we can't meet up for a while.

Information For Mac Users

- You can use Chrome as an alternative to Safari. [Its web video support may be better.]

- In Safari there is a menu item "Safari > Settings for the website...". In that window for RealBridge, select "Allow all auto-play" media, and set the camera & microphone permission to "Allow".

 

Buttons and Controls

This turns your camera off or on – so the table can/can’t see you

This turns your microphone off or on – so the table can/can’t hear you (use this to eliminate any background noise in your home)

This turns off or on your view of everybody else (they can still see you)

This refreshes all of your video feeds (use if they are stuck)

This lets you chat to your table. If you are on a PC, the chat bar is already displayed, since the window is wider/bigger.

This lets you adjust a player’s volume for just you (nobody else is affected).

Use this button to ask the opponents to let you change your bid or play

Calls for a Director

 

Sends you back to the lobby where you can see all the other tables (the place where you first arrived). You can then rejoin your table or join another one to see/chat with other players at their table.  This is a very useful feature as you can join any table before the game and have a social chat while waiting for your partner to arrive.

 

 

 

Finally, we will be using the “club friendly mode” of RealBridgeThis means you alert your partner’s bids (verbally of course!), just as you would in face-to-face bridge at the Club. This is different to championship mode (screens and self-alerts).

We have invested a lot of time in liaising with RealBridge to make this possible quickly for Manchester Bridge Club.

Please support it by coming along and trying it out. You will get used to it – just like you did on BBO.

MBC will continue running BBO games as part of our weekly schedule as we appreciate that some of you do not have devices that support compatible or working microphones and cameras or the browsers required. If this is the case, please let us know so we can assess how many people will be excluded from RB games.
