BBO - Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game
BBO - Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game

Have you played online bridge? Are you a Bridge Base Online (BBO) member? During this COVID-19 pandemic, BBO may be our best option for playing bridge with real people!

If you are familiar with BBO, then you may want to login and tryout the daily tournaments intended to support your local club, that means NKBC! The games start at 10AM, 5PM, and 7:30PM. These games are 18 board tournaments in which you can win ACBL black points. They cost $6 each session, and $4 of the game fee will be returned to clubs. It's a national tournament, meaning anyone can play.

If you are unfamiliar with BBO, now may be an excellent time to join and get a login, it's free. Then you can explore how to play bridge online with your friends. Here's a BBO how-to link and also some information from ACBL on the Support Your Club online games. If after reading these links you are still stymied, consult with Howard. He is an experienced BBO player and has offered his assistance.

ACBL is also working with BBO and The Common Game to create a tournament for just NKBC players. Now that would be FUN. Brush up on your BBO skills, and we'll see you at an online NKBC game, soon! smiley

Current Guidance from ACBL
Current Guidance from ACBL
  • Based on the most recent recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, ACBL Management strongly recommends that your club close at least until May 11, 2020. This date may be updated as information becomes available. The health and well-being of our club players, their friends and family and the community at large is our primary concern.

 

  • The ACBL is currently exploring online club games We are working with Bridge Base Online (BBO) and The Common Game on this development project that is being designed to financially benefit clubs, and we will continue to provide you updates on the progress of these initiatives. In the meantime, if they have not yet done so, encourage your players to create an account with BBO and ask them to link their ACBL member number with their account. Be aware that online bridge platforms are experiencing service disruptions due to higher than usual volume, so please be patient while they work through these issues. 

Editor's note: if you choose to try out online bridge with BBO, there's a bit of a learning curve, more than just creating an account. Linking your ACBL number to your BBO account isn't where you might expect to find it. In order to link your ACBL number with your BBO account: click on ACBL World (in Featured Areas on the Home screen), scroll to the bottom of the ACBL World screen, and then click on Update ACBL Number. It's not easy to find if you're new to BBO.
