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. 

Steps I Must Take to Play on BBO with The Club
Steps I Must Take to Play on BBO with The Club

Step 1:  You need to be an ACBL member to play in these Games on BBO!  It's easy to obtain an ACBL number at:   

The American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) has just launched a FREE Guest Membership option,  

CLICK HERE TO: Sign up today! Once you’re a Guest Member, you can truly see all that the bridge world has to offer.

Please remember to add our Club information as your recruiter when you register: STEPHEN BRIDGE CLUB, Club #:  275784

Click here to see all the benefits you’ll get for free and then sign up at this link: www.acbl.org/guest-join

Guest Memberships last for 120 days and are only available to brand new members, not previous or existing members.

 Step 2  This will allow you to play indefinitely -- you just need to get the ACBL # once and then even if you do NOT join after the month, you can continue to play with us. 

Just send along your new ACBL number and your BBO Username to me at lauferbridge@gmail.com.

Step 3:  Create a Username on Bridgebase Online:  www.bridgebase.com, if you need help, then call one of us at numbers listed on the Left of your screen in the Bulletin Box.

Step 4:  If you tried to log on BBO and Join Our Game at Virtual Clubs, and you find that you are BLOCKED FROM REGISTERING TO PLAY, then, please call or text:  416-729-8600 to reach Stephen  or call Richard at 416-816-7115, send along your BBO Username, share it with us so that we can add you to the List of Players eligible to sign on for a game and so we can find each other.

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 

Step 6:  Watch the Video attached in the boxes below--- it's great introduction to How To Use BBO to Bid, Play, and more!
