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.

General Information

For the 2021-2022 season, the Western League will run its event using RealBridge. There will be seven rounds in the event, all starting at 2:00 p.m. on a Saturday. There are three separate divisions, A, B, and C. By default, all matches will be 24 boards played between teams of four. Counties may, by prior arrangement choose to play teams of 8 in any or all divisions. The events are scheduled for October 2nd, November 27th, December 11th, January 15th, February 12th, March 12th and April 2nd. Sarah Amos will be the director for all the events.

 
If you would like to represent Somerset in one of these matches, please let us know by sending an email to SCBA Selectors. I have already constructed a selection pool of over 60 players, and, if you are already receiving email from the Selection Committee, you do not need to register a second time.
 

The Selection Committee is composed of Sheila Coda, Steve Fletcher, Andy Ridgers and Mike Smith.

Formalities for Western League matches.
Matches will be played as teams of four, in two stanzas. At half time, teams will change their opponents.
Where counties agree to play a teams of eight match, the match will be played as two separately scored teams of four. The overall result will be calculated by adding the imps result from both matches, and then converting to VPs.
No kibitzers are allowed during matches.
Undos are only allowed during bidding.
As with EBU events generally, there will be no screens and self alerting will be used.
Please aim to be seated at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start, so that the director can check everyone is seated correctly.
Results will not be uploaded to the EBU, so there will be no cross imps and no NGS.
At the end of the season, final league results will be uploaded to the EBU and all masterpoints awarded at this point.
