NBBC Online Bridge Sessions at BBO

A number of local Bridge clubs run bridge sessions online at BBO rather than meeting in the flesh. We will be running similar sessions to allow NBBC members (and others) to engage with each other. 

We are now running Thursday morning sessions, the 2-hour session kicking off at 10:00 with play starting at 10:15. 

Details of how to join a session (participation instructions) are shown in the next column.

If you would be interested in taking part, please contact Keith Hulin, Geoff Evans or Tony Ferneyhough. 

Interest is growing fast with 42 registered members but all are welcome to join in (or just to watch)

Welcome to North Birmingham Bridge Club
Additional notes for BBO tournaments

Points to remember in future :

  1. Please have a current profile for yourself - there are many who can help. A profile is expected of all members.
  2. Alerting is different online. Any player making a non-standard bid must 'SELF-ALERT' at the time of making the bid.  This will only be seen by the opposition - so NO illegal information is passed on.
  3. Only leave the table because of unforeseen circumstances. It would be polite to tell me!

 At the end of the tourney you will be exited by the BBO software. You can stay and watch others if you wish.

See top of this column for details of future sessions.

The movement currently played is called a partial 'revenge' Mitchell. I will need support from another BBO TD for you to be able to play a Howell. 

Any issues or problems call me. (Or any members of the committee).

Make a note of my BBO name VESIAN.
