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.

Availability for Selection

If you would like to represent Somerset in one of these matches, please let me know by sending an email to SCBA Selectors. Make sure to include the name of the partner(s) that you wish to play with. If you will be unavailable for an extended period, please include that information as well. If you have a preference for playing at a particular time of day, include that as well. Note that Western League matches are currently played at 14:00 on Saturdays, using the RealBridge platform.
