Play for BB$ and Masterpoints - Feb 21st 2021

Thanks for playing today. 

Our next game will be Feb 28th 2021 at 1:00 PM.

We will be playing every Sunday.

Please tell your frends, the more players, the larger the prizes.

The 70% pot was not won today and will be approximately 130 BB$ at the next game.

Todays winners are listed here (Prize amounts are per individual):

We have had some inquiries about Pairs showing up in different Stratum in different games.  I have queried BBO and here is their explanation:

"ACBL games are usually stratified according to fixed master point ranges, but
BBO does it differently and the Virtual Club games are using our algorithm. At
the beginning of each stratified game, the program gathers the points (ACBL
plus BBO points won outside of ACBL games) held by all the players (if
Individual) or partnerships (if Pairs) in that particular game and breaks them
into thirds. The third of the players with the highest third of the combined
points are put into Stratum A, the second third into Stratum B and the lowest
third into Stratum C. Players with missing ACBL# are placed in Stratum A to
prevent experienced players from competing unfairly against lower flights."

 

We are attempting to be fair, so lacking any other rating information on the players, we must use the ranking as provided by BBO to determine placements, hence prizes.

Open Pairs for BB$ and Masterpoints

 

Moncton Codiac Bridge Club will be scheduling a new game to encourage competition and provide players with chances to win BB$ in addition to ACBL master points.

When:           Sunday, November 29th at 1:00 PM.

Games will be every second Sunday. 

If we have sufficient interest, we can make it each Sunday.

Boards:          A minimum of 24 boards but this could be adjusted upwards to match table count.

Cost:               8 BB$

Prizes:            40% of all entry fees will be awarded as follows:

15% to the overall 1st place pair in A, B and C

12% to the overall 2ND place pair in A, B and C

9% to the overall 3rd place pair in A, B and C

4% to a 70% game pot with a minimum win of 50 BB$. This pot will continue to grow each game until it is won.

As an example, if we had 20 tables the prizes would be:

1st place in each of A, B and C BB$ 32.00             = 16 BB$ per player

2nd place in each of A, B and C BB$ 25.60             = 13 BB$ per player

3rd place in each of A, B and C BB$ 19.20             = 10 BB$ per player

70% pot BB$ 50.00                                           = 25 BB$ per player

Note: All prizes are rounded up to the nearest BB$.

Rules:           

Only players who have paid the entry fee are eligible to win BB$.

            Placements are determined from the BBO results listing and are final.

            BB$ will be transferred into the accounts of the winning teams (no cash payouts).

            Should there be a tie, i.e. for first, the prizes for 1st and 2nd will be combined and split equally.

            Should no team reach the 70% level, the 70% pot will carry over to the next game.

            Should there be more than one team reaching the 70% level, the highest score will win the pot.

            Winners will be posted on https://www.bridgewebs.com/moncton/ news page within 24 hours.

            If we have your email on file, we will send you an email copy of the winners listing.

If you are not currently playing in Moncton, send us your BBO name and we will authorize you.

We are scheduling for Sunday but are willing to do this on Saturday afternoon instead.  Please let us know your preferences by email codiacbridgeclub@gmail.com .  You can also email us with your BBO name, phone number and email so we can email the game winners list to you.  Please send any other comments or suggestions to our email and we will reply.

Thanks, we hope to see everyone at the tables.

Virtual Club Games starting 2020-04-20 on BBO

All activities are cancelled until further advised.  BUT you can Play ONLINE on BBO.

The Codiac Moncton DBC  is back !  We are hosting on BBO for our local players at 1:00pm on Mondays and Fridays and 7:15 PM on Wednesdays.  If you have local bridge friends who may not get the Codiac Bridge emails please pass this along to them.

Here's the important details:

  • You can still play if you didn't play at the Codiac in 2019, but we need to add your BBO name manually. So please let us know in advance if possible. This 'restriction' was an ACBL thing -- they created an "eligible to play" list based on our 2019 games, to prevent the game from being open to the whole world.  But we can manually add to the list.
  • You must have BBO$ in your account.  All transactions on BBO are in US$.  Monday's game costs $5.  You can add money to your BBO account any time.
  • You can start registering two hours before the game.  Prior to that time the game is invisible.
  • You don't need a partner ... there's a partnership desk!  You can choose a partner from there, or you can add your name to the partnership desk list awaiting a partner. (See instructions at bottow of email)
  • Both you and your partner must be online at the same time when you register.
  • There is no limit to the number of tables or players.
  • If you try to register and you get a yellow warning message in the bottom right: "BLOCKED -tournament is private game" … this just means we need to add to you the 'eligible to play' list. To do this
    • Call Al at 506-863-3377          If you cannot logon to BBO and find Game, then call our pal Al
      • Text Bruce at 506-874-0623   If you are BLOCKED  then do TEXT Bruce
    • How to access the game:

    • Log on to BBO
    • On main screen click "Competitive" section
    • Click the "ACBL Virtual Clubs" (this is where all the ACBL club games are - there will be lots)
    • Find the Studio game VACB130187 (or use the search bar and type: codiac)
    • Click on our game to register.  See the attached picture.  You have these other options:
      • In the main box you can enter your partner's name, and whether you want to pay for them.  Your partner (who must also be online) will be notified.
      • Along the top (See the picture) is the partnership desk.  You can add your name and someone else can choose you as a partner later.
      • Along the top you can also see the other pairs that are already signed up.
    • See you Monday!    Woohoo ...

      Questions or problems or complaints ... we are here, you know how to reach us.

When When

I have good news for all of you who want more games. We will be pooling our virtual club membership with Fundy (Saint John) and FiddleHead (Fredericton). This means that we will be able to play virtual games a week as follows:

Here is the current schedule for our pool:

Monday 1 pm (Codiac)

Monday 7:15pm (Fiddlehead)

Tuesday 1:00 pm (Shediac)

Tuesday 7:15 pm (Fundy)

Wednesday 1 pm (Fiddlehead)

Wednesday 7 pm (Fundy) 0-20 game & 399er game

Sunday 1:00pm (Codiac)  Masterpoints and Money Game. Payouts for A B and C. (To play 8$ per person)

Codiac Guests - all current guests will be welcome to play as usual

Codiac New guests - if you want to play with a guest that hasn't played before, please let us know so that I can add them to the list

Guest pairs - lately we've had guest pairs asking to play. I'm inclined not to let them play unless they have some connection with our clubs, or they will fill out a table.

Connection could be - they played in our club before 2019, so didn't get on the "include" list set up by ACBL back in the spring;

or if a current member vouches for them. We have a cap on guests, so its not unlimited.

We are all invited to participate in all the other  Fredericton (Fiddlehead) and SJ (Fundy) games and they will be invited to our games too.
