Midland Bridge Club Goes Online

Due to the ongoing pandemic, our in club's DUPLICATE games are postponed indefinitely until further notice. But don’t fret my fellow Bridgers, we have all your bridge needs covered. ACBL has teamed up with Bridge Base Online (BBO) to offer online virtual clubs. Below is a short, but detailed explanation of what’s going on and how it works. Please reach out to Cassandra if you need further assistance.

  1. Games will be held EVERY Wednesday Evening @ 7:15pm (19:15) 
    1. VACB217091 (4 digit random assigned #) Pairs, MIDLAND BC 7:15pm Open (the date of game) 
    2. Registration is open 2 hours prior to game start (5:15pm)
    3. 21 or 24 boards – 2 or 3 boards/round (14/21 minutes/round, 7 minutes/board); hands are completely random
    4. Black MP’s are awarded, games are ACBL sanctioned; $4 USD per game with an 80% kick back to the club!
    5. Scores will be posted on our club’s website and through your personalized ACBL account after the game.
    6. You do not have to be an ACBL member to play.
    7. If you need a partner, please contact Jeanette Halliday via info posted on the left hand side of the club’s homepage.
    8. ONLY 1 partner out of the partnership needs to register for the game.
  2. Bridge Base Online Info https://www.bridgebase.com/v3/
    1. In order to play with us, you need to create an account with Bridge Base Online.
    2. Once you have done so, please email Cassandra with your username so you will be added to our virtual game list.
    3. Please fill out your convention cards. (see e blast emails or email Cassandra directly for assistance)
    4. Add money to your account ONLY through BBO; it is the safest and offers the best exchange rate. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see BB$ in the upper right hand corner, click here and follow the instructions.
    5. Please ensure you add your ACBL number if you have one as this will directly affect the strats for the game.
    NOTE: Strats are determined by highest MP holdings of the pair, not the average. If you are not an ACBL member, you will automatically be stratified in A despite your partner being a B or C . We have zero control over this.
  3. If you need to update or add your ACBL number, once you’ve logged in, click on ACBL World and you’ll see 3 blue bottoms at the bottom of the screen, click on Update your ACBL number
  4. Once you feel comfortable with the system, navigating and playing AND you’d like to become a substitute for other games, please email Cassandra directly for this information. 
  5. Memberships
    1. To our members that are seasonal or new players interested and have not paid their membership, please e transfer $10 per person to gailchapman1@rogers.com
  6. Miscellaneous
    1. If you are ever having issues with changes not saved, can’t see a tournament etc, please log out then back in. This seems to be a common issue and easily resolved doing the above step.
    2. Once you’re in a game, to call the director, click on the blue box with three lines through it
    3. Please play quickly as rounds/boards are TIMED, (movement is done automatically whether you’ve finished or not), alert your own bids (found in your bidding box), claim when you can and keep all chat until the end of the round.
    4. If you didn’t receive any of the emails, had follow up questions, ideas, concerns etc please email those to Cassandra.
    5. LASTLY HAVE FUN!
