We can not sit in the bridge club building but we can still play on the Bridge Base Online website.

This how you join in the “members only game” directed by Peter Styles

If you are unfamiliar with BBO, then there are a number of guides available on both BBO and the EBU websites, just click here

Beforehand you will need to have done the following:- 

Create an account on the BBO site (click here). Up to 10 characters and make it so that it somewhat resembles your name.

Put some money into your BBO account (click here)

On the day

Log on to BBO.  Click ‘competitive’.  Click ‘All Tournaments’.  Write Stratford in ‘Search’.  Click on Stratford Game.

Write your partner’s BBO name in the space (you can elect to pay for them by ticking the box).  Check your partner is online and invite them.  If they are not online at this time you will get an error message and must repeat the request later. (If you are the partner being invited just log on to BBO and wait for the invitation which you should accept)

Now you just wait for the game to start

Once the game is started you will find yourself at the table ready to play.  Remember to keep an eye on the clock, as the board finishes when the time for the board runs out and to alert your own bids.

When the competition is finished just wait and the results will appear

Before and after the game you can ‘talk’ to your partner in the message box.   During the game you can ’talk’ to the table.  Click on the box at the bottom left to change the target for your chat and be careful about chat to Tournament. Examples are here

The results will be on the normal Stratford upon Avon bridge Club website shortly

Extras
