  Feedback on I/N Sectional Swiss

It is possible that some of you found the format of the team game on Sunday June 9 made the game too long. We played 8 rounds of 6 boards each, for a total of 48 boards. Some other choices could be

  • 7 rounds of 6 boards for a total of 42 boards
  • 8 rounds of 5 boards for a total of 40 boards
  • 6 rounds of 6 boards for a total of 42 boards BUT for this to happen, we would need to play either
    • 4 rounds in the morning and 2 rounds in the afternoon
    • 2 rounds in the morning and 4 rounds in the afternoon

Your input would be appreciated and, if you liked the 8 rounds of 6 boards, please advise as well. The best way to let us know is by using the contact page located here ... C&M

  Results display on our web site

Some videos on looking at the results on our website:

  1. Have a look here to see where/how one can view results for a board, similar to that which you now see on the Bridgemate after a score has been accepted by E/W. 
  2. An intro to the results engine available on the web site can be seen here.
  3. Discussion of goings-on at the table that detracts from the ability to play all the boards in the 3 hours alloted time can be seen here.

  ACBL sanctioned

All games at The Bridge Connection give ACBL masterpoints. Most club games give black MPs, and STaC (Sectional Tournament aClubs) games give silver MPs. Some special games give red points. Please check in with Colin for further details on this.

The Bridge Connection follows/adheres to the ACBL Zero Tolerance Policy, details available here. We also appreciate your not wearing any scented product to the club, preserving an environment friendly to all.

Please check-in with Colin, Michael, or Directors if there is anything you would like to discuss related to the club. We also encourage suggestions from one and all with new ideas, as well as feedback on the games and more.

Deep down, we are all in it for the same reason ... the game is part of our psyche and dear to our smiley. Be it down 3 or bid 7 made 7, it's all about having fun and being pleasant to one and all at the club.

  Our coordinates

Players are requested to use the door on the right when facing the front of the building. They are not allowed in the kitchen and, if something is needed in there, please ask the Director. The Director will keep the water pitchers full on the table in front of the bar. We have been asked to do this by OHCC management.
