Looking for Lessons? Supervised Bridge Play?

Welcome to Steamboat Bridge
Welcome Steamboat Bridge Players

Welcome to Bridge In Steamboat!

Because of COVID-19, all in person club games are currently suspended.
Good News! Steamboat Bridge is hosting Virtual Games on BridgeBase Online.

Virtual Games allow all of our fun Steamboat Bridge players to play together regardless of where we are safely playing at home! ACBL is supporting Virtual Clubs by awarding elevated master points for club play.
Every open game is a club championship!

Limited Games! We try to fill at least 3 tables just prior to each Open Game. Look for the 199r  section at 2:55pm followed by the OPEN section at 3:05.
To play in a limited game, each partner must not have more ACBL Masterpoints than the limit.
Please register at least 30 minutes before each game and be online at least 10 minutes before each game. The Open will kick off as soon as the 199r has launched - be Ready by 3!

Convention Card Information & Sportsmanlike Conduct

To quote another director of a large, successful club:
"Convention cards, answering questions put to you by the opponents, and playing in a timely manner are not just courtesies or conveniences. They are a requirement, thanks".

How do you fill out the convention card? Click HERE to checkout the ACBL articles with tips on every section.

How do I post a convention card on BBO? Click HERE to checkout the BBO help on posting cards.

Still have card questions? You are not alone! ACBL has been hosting seminars. Click HERE to see the schedule.

And, Sharon is available to help - just call or email!


Conduct Becoming a Great Sport:

We are so lucky at Steamboat Bridge (and our Peer games) to have friendly, nurturing, sportsmanlike players. This should not be taken for granted. Read on:

Additional Information Needed during the Bidding:
How to ask an opponent for more information about a bid? Click the Bid! This will pop up an 'explain' dialogue for the bidder.
How to answer a request for more information? Click your own bid or fill in the 'explain' dialogue that pops up.
Do not use the Chat to answer questions. Your partner should not see the explanation you provide the opponents.

Slow Play:
The October Bridge Bulletin column "In First Seat", defines deliberate slow play  as “flagrant, unsportsmanlike conduct.” (Refusal to answer an opponents request for information falls into the same definition.)  When the clock runs out, either the BBO Double Dummy software or the Tournament Director (TD) must review and evaluate the hand to consider changing an average (A==) score awarded to both sides. It is best for the overall results for all players if the actual predictable score is posted. Sometimes there are so many tricks remaining, the director must review and make a judgement. If frequent or deliberate delays are obvious, the TD may assign an Average Minus to the offending team. BBO now provides timing details for TD's to utilize in making judgements.

Have Fun Playing and thank you all for setting the standard for a great game!
