News, News!, NEWS! Updated 09/03/2021

Please pay particular attention to the items numbered in red as they are the latest information.

News 1:  Club subscriptions are now due for the 2021-22 club year.  If you have not yet paid, please click here to read the details of how to pay.

News 2:  There is a Social Bridge session on Realbridge every Friday from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The link to each week's session is on the right-hand side of this page, labelled "Realbridge Friday Social Session". 

There is no movement and no competitive scoring, it's just an opportunity for you and some friends to sit at a table and play some hands at your own pace.  It's not just for club members, you can invite guests if you want to. If you would like to have more chatter than bridge that's fine, it's entirely up to you.  You will have to organise your own four players.  Then just turn up at any time between the start and end times and take a seat at any vacant table and start playing.  Up to now this has not been very well supported.  If there is not more interest soon we might choose to stop running these sessions.  So if you want to have the opportunity to play socially with the audio/video connections of Realbridge, please support the sessions.

News 3:  Please try to keep track of how many Realbridge sessions you have played vs the number you have paid for. You can see the list by clicking on Realbridge Attendance, which is the 9th item down in the main menu on the left.  This doesn't tell the whole story though because if you play with a guest you will have to pay for both of you, but will only be counted once in the list.  Things will run much more efficienty if you can each take responsibility for topping-up your table money credit before it runs out, rather than waiting for the club to chase you for a further payment.  Information on how to pay can be found by clicking here.

News 4:  If you want to know how this website can help you find a partner to play at any of the club's online duplicate sessions, please click here to find out.

 

Online Club Duplicate

Club online duplicate sessions are run as follows

Day Online Service Arrive By Play Starts
Mondays Realbridge 18:45 19:00
Tuesdays Realbridge 13:45 14:00
Wednesdays Realbridge 18:45 19:00

All our sessions are open to members of both Rhiwbina and Lisvane clubs.

Please arrive at the stated time for each session so that play can start promptly.  The director may not be able to accommodate latecomers.

If you do not have a partner the director will attempt to find you one but that cannot be guaranteed.  Please join the session and send a message to say you are in need of a partner.

To join a Realbridge session, please click the Next Realbridge Session Link button, located near the top right of this screen.  At the Realbridge login screen, please enter your name and enter your ID.  The ID can be either your Club ID number or your WBU ID number.  Note, it's just the number, without any "rhiw" prefix.

You must have played at least one taster session successfully on Realbridge before joining a duplicate session.

Realbridge Taster Sessions

It is essential that anyone wanting to play at a club duplicate session on Realbridge has, at the minimum, attended one taster session first. We do not currently have any club-specific taster sessions scheduled.  However, Realbridge itself holds regular taster sessions and you can join one of those.  To do so:

Step 1:  Confirm that your equipment is suitable to operate with Realbridge by visiting the Camera and Microphone test page.  To do that, click here.

Step 2:  If everything looks good on the test page, you can register to play one of the open taster sessions by following the instructions on the Realbridge News Page - click here and then click on News in the menu on the top and follow the instructions there for registering for a taster.

How to stay Connected when playing Online

Some club members have been experiencing the problem of regularly losing connection while playing bridge online (whether BBO or Stepbridge).  This may be due to the configuration of your device.  Keith has provided some instructions on how to check this and adjust the relevant configuration setting.  So if you are suffering from regular disconnects from online bridge, please take a look by clicking HERE and see if this fixes the problem for you.
