Laws and Guidelines for playing BBO Bridge

Do Not alert in the CHAT SCREEN

How to self-alert on BBO

No alerting should happen via the chat screen. 

Alerts are for the opponents to hear, not your partner.

The proper way to alert happens when it's your turn to bid.

Perhaps your partner opened 1NT and you want to transfer to hearts.

On the bottom row of the bidding box is an

'alert' button, click on it, and it will turn red.

There is an 'Explain' line just to the right, click there and type your

explanation. In this case, type 'transfer'.

Now at the top of the bidding box, click on '2' and then on the diamond symbol.

You have successfully made and alerted your 2D transfer bid.

When you make an alert, a box opens in the upper right of your playing area with your bid,

your alert explanation, and an 'Explain' button.

On your opponent's screens, they will see your bid outlined in red and the same Explain box in the upper right

with your alert explanation. Your partner doesn't see anything. 

That's all well and good, but what if you make your bid and then realize you forgot to alert? Don't panic,

just click on your bid in the auction area. An Explain box will open and you will be able to type in your alert.

Again, this explanation only goes to your opponents, not to your partner.

Perhaps your opponents make a bid and you want to know what it means.

Just click on it in the auction area. just click on the bid and the opponent who made the bid will tell you.

Your other opponent won't see the explanation, only you and your partner will see it.

You can claim or concede tricks by clicking the CLAIM button.

You can call Director at any time by clicking the blue “hamburger” menu at the top corner of the table.

If you are worried about misclicks, turn on the “confirm cards” and “confirm bids” settings in Account > Settings

Bridge Etiquette

St Brigids Bridge Club is a dynamic club with almost 150 members, many of whom joined the club in recent years,

and many have never read "The Laws of Duplicate Bridge"  and don't particularly want to.

The  most important law to remember is that

 Bridge is a game and players are reminded that they should treat all players including their partners

in a civilised and friendly manner.   

Players are also reminded that your club is run by a committee of volunteers who are not paid for their services.

In the website's  main menu there is a page "Bridge Etiquette"  it outlines many of the rules of bridge

in everyday languaage  and it is worthwhile to have a browse when you have a few minutes to spare.
