Message From A Club Player Member-- Club Review 2020

"Stephen's Bridge Club is a most welcoming place. A place that caters to the bridge players.........short lessons, very organized play, great snacks, a beautiful setting, spacious accommodation and an atmosphere of wanting to make your stay enjoyable. What is stressed is showing kindness and respect to each other and having fun too.

 5 stars in my opinion.   Thank you to Stephen and all his gentle organizers."  J. Stephens, Real Bridge Player at Our Club. 

Thank you for your kind words.  We will strive to keep true to everything that you experienced at our Club!

BBO ETIQUETTE AT OUR CLUB - STEPHEN'S BRIDGE - TORONTO

BBO Etiquette Tips - See ACBL Rule:  74A2 (Conduct & Etiquette, Proper Attitude)

Whether defending or playing the hand, our Club players congratulate their partners only after the Opponents say it FIRST.

WHY DO WE ADVOCATE THIS APPROACH?

Many contracts end in positive results for a Pair due to an inadvertent error by the opponents.  Declarers, their partners, and the opponents, frequently recognize that if a different card or lead was made, the results would be different. 

So, a comment of "well done partner", or "good defence partner", can sometimes be interpreted as, "Opponents, thanks for helping us out on this hand!"  We have all been in the position of feeling responsible for a lost contract no matter whether we are defenders or declarers.  

Congratulatory remarks to partner should be limited to private chat.  This benefits everyone.  

Of course, advise the table of your general bidding system, either Standard or 2/1 or other, and defence carding. 

Being social using Table Chat is great.

Step 5:  To Register, Go to BBO, then click on Competitive (means Duplicate), then ACBL All Tournaments or Virtual Clubs (or ACBL North America), then Search, 'Stephen' & Click on Name of Club to the RIGHT of our Club Number:  VACB275784
