Real Bridge Friday Pairs

Real Bridge Friday Pairs 2:15 pm

Every Friday in January at 2:15 pm, we are holding free Real Bridge taster sessions for members to play on this new platform. Initially, no EBU Master Points will be awarded and so it will be a friendly event for members to try Real Bridge without any pressure. Real Bridge is the closest online bridge experience to live bridge - with video and audio (chat) between players.

Email us if you're interested in playing and we'll send you a link. The event will be open from early Friday morning but please join no later than 1:45 pm.

About Audio and Video

For the 'Real Bridge' experience you need to able to see and hear** other players at the table with a device that has "video and audio" (microphone, speakers and camera) 
Note: **alerting bids is the same as live bridge - your partner alerts and announces conventional calls

Check your device using the  Camera and microphone test
