FUNBRIDGE

WEEKLY SUFFOLK CHALLENGE ON WEDNESDAYS

You can play in EBU competitions on Funbridge. 

In these competitions you will partner one of Funbridge's 'robots', and play against two other robots. You therefore don't need a 'human partner' to take part, and you can play whenever you wish as you don't need human opponents online at the same time. The competitions consist of 20 boards, and you can play them at any time during the competition period, stopping and restarting as often as you wish. Games take place every day and run until midnight (24 hours). Monday and Friday are scored by IMPs. Other days are scored by matchpoints.

Acol is one of the bidding systems available for you to choose (which isn't always the case with some online platforms), and you can set which conventions and carding methods you and your robotic partner play.

The games cost €2 (by charging you in Euros we can charge less than £2), and Master Points can be won. There is also a month-long and year-long competition with cash prizes. 

The games are open to everyone.

GETTING BACK TO NORMAL?

NEWS FLASH
NEWS FLASH

I am delighted to announce that both Crewkerne and Ilminster Bridge Clubs have decided to accept the EBU's offer of a year's free membership of the EBU. As Chew Valley and Coxley Bridge Clubs had already decided to accept the trial we now have four new affiliated clubs in Somerset. It is my very great pleasure to welcome all four to the EBU.

Last updated : 3rd Dec 2021 16:44 GMT

The Somerset Barbarians Bridge Club has developed from a collaboration between Ilminster and Crewkerne Bridge Clubs who played online together throughout the pandemic. Although both clubs are now happily playing face to face again several members indicated a wish to continue playing togerther online hence the formation of this new online club which is aimed at the average and not the expert club player.

The Barbarians will play on Wednesday evenings at 7pm starting on October 6th using the BBO platform, 18 board games costing 3BB$, and all those who have played previously with Ilminster/Crewkerne or with Somerset Online are already registered to play. New players from Somerset wishing to play should contact Mike Dobson at jeanneandmikedobson@sky.com

The club has its own website at www.bridgewebs.com/somersetbarbarians which is where you will find the resuts and other information.
