Welcome to Orpington Bridge Club
Are We Nearly There Yet?

Your Committee have met and are making plans for the re-opening of face2face bridge sessions, however we are still very much in the hands of the Government as we follow the roadmap out of this pandemic. We are fully aware that the bridge club evenings are a large part of our social enjoyment and well being but the safety of our members is paramount. Please keep checking the website for any updates and rest assured we will resume normal play as soon as possible.

Welcome to Orpington Bridge Club!

Orpington Bridge club is an EBU club running regular Monday & Thursday evening duplicate in Orpington in the London Borough of Bromley, UK. The club is very keen to welcome new members: call Alistair 07973 865435 but not on club nights, please!

The club room is warm and congenial: the adjoining bar, separated by a solid wall, serves a varying range of keenly-priced, well-kept cask beer (recent CAMRA London Region best club bar). We normally play eight 3-board rounds, at 22 minutes a round, to assure a finish by 10:30.

Two Steps Towards Normal

On Mondays and Thursdays a proper movement with rounds of two or three boards Match Pointed against lots of opponents from Orpington Bridge Club and their friends. Master points and NGS, magazine points too.

It's a pairs competition, so you do need to log on with a partner: the bbo site makes it easy to meet up with them. "Undo" is not allowed for bids or plays: best to switch on "confirm bids" in bbo account settings and don't be too hasty with your opening lead. The game is run strictly to a clock which shows on screen: please help your table to keep to schedule. Most players like a bit of chat.

Virtual table money is a real $3 so you will need bbo credit or a partner to pay for you.
All the usual bbo concepts apply. On bbo the player who makes a bid explains its agreed meaning. Only the opponents see this explanation. Please explain everything where you have an agreement. For example: 1 NT opening explain "12-14": 1NT rebid explain "15-17" or whatever you play. Stayman, transfers, Blackwood responses: explain them all, please. At the start of each round, chat to the table with your basic system like "Acol. 4cM. 12-14nt. 3 weak twos. Normal signals"

*The competition is restricted to people on a named list: for friends we need bbo names, real names and preferably EBU numbers in time for the system to recognise them. Providing these details is not a commitment to play, just an enabler. For more information on how to register and play On-line see the document in the menu - titled "On-line at Orpinton"
