Self-Alerting on BBO
Self-Alerting on BBO

Playing on BBO is a different experience than playing at the club. One of the BIGgest differences is alerting your own bids.

After our training at the club, it's hard to remember to alert your own bids. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don't, sometimes we're too late. We are all trying to do it right. Please have a little patience.

Here's a short summary of how to self-alert, what happens when you alert, and how to ask about an opponent's bid.

Got Your Convention Card?
Got Your Convention Card?

Be sure your convention card (CC) is online with BBO. You can have a CC with each of your partners, or designate a favorite one.

To create a CC, click on 'account' at the right of your screen, and then on 'Convention cards' at the top. Select a CC of your favorite type or one from a similar partner. Make your changes and save it. If you fill in your partner's handle in the blue band at the top, it will automatically be selected when you play together. If you open a card with partnerA, change the handle in the blue band to partnerB and save, BBO will make a copy and you'll have two CCs, one for each.

When you're playing, you can look at your opponent's CC by clicking on the  in the upper left, and select their CC.
