Cheating When Playing Online

The CBAI has asked the Club to remind our Members about requirements for ethical behaviour at all times. This is as a result of dishonest behaviour by a small minority of online bridge players. There are daily reports of peoople perceived to be deliberately CHEATING when playing online.

Here is the full document issued by the CBAI Cheating at Online Bridge.pdf  Please take the time to read it.

Also here are some points to note when playing Bridge online on the BBO platform:

  • Do not provide explanation of your bid in the chat area for partner to see as well as opponents. This is NOT acceptable. The alert button should be used as it is only the opponents who should be aware of the alert
  • All players must enter their real names in their user profile. Preferably enter both names, but a Christian name only is acceptable
  • No unaffiliated players may play on the CBAI BBO platform

MEMBERS' BBO USERNAMES

As we still have some waiting time until the Bridge Centre re-opens, we are pleased to know more members are taking on the challenge of online bridge. All the necessary information, including a Tutorial Video for getting started are in the "Playing Bridge Online" section just below.

To help new members and even existing members, find a partner for a game here is a list of some members BBO usernames. Members BBO Usernames.docx.pdf  28 is a good number for our club,  There is a small few of those listed who have not yet ventured to play in the Greystones Bridge Centre (GBC) online tourlnaments on BBO. Tuesday afternoon at 2.05pm is a good game time for the online beginner.

Remember the offer of help and guidance from your Committee is still available,  Look forward to seeing many more of you online soon.

Béir bua, Cynthia

Our Last Award for the Year 2019/2020
Our Last Award for the Year 2019/2020

During the year 2019//2020 it was decided to have a new annual award which did not necessarily mean the winning of a bridge competition was a requirement.

Despite my best efforts I have not been able to meet up with our recipient for a photo shoot, but you all know her well.

It gives me great pleasure to tell you that Margaret Harding is Three Trouts Bridge Club's first ever "Member of the Year".

Warm congratulations and virtual hugs Margaret.

President's Prize 2019/2020

We are nearing the end of our Prize Giving for 2019/20.  We congratulate Penny and Helena on winning the President's Prize this year.

Unfortunately it has been impossible to take photos of the rest of the prize winners.

The Runner-ups are Rosemary McNulty and Margaret Harding.

Third place; Linda McGeehan and Noel Carthy

Fourth place; (in lieu of session prize) Barbara Donovan and Kay Grimes.

Sadly I can't give you all a hug and kiss in congratulations, but I am so happy for you and hopefully we will take that super prize winners' photo in the very near future.

Running Lamb 2019/2020
Running Lamb 2019/2020

Two Running Lamb competitions took place on 29th January and 26th February. It was unfortunate that we were unable to have the normal 4 competitions.

It was decided half a leg of lamb was better than no leg at all. The calculations were made and Penny came out on top. 

Congratulations to Penny and well done.

Three Trouts Player of the Year
Three Trouts Player of the Year

Dear Friends,

As it looks like it could be a long time before we can all be together again for an AGM, I thought we could get some of our business underway now, starting with the Player of the Year Competition.

We congratulate Linda McGeehan on being awarded Player of the Year for 2019/20. Having  good players in our Club is an honour and a great bonus.  Watching how they bid and play is facinating and can only help to improve our game. 

This Trophy was first won by Madge Murphy in 2005/06, followed by Freda Morrissey in 2006/07 and 2010/11, then Monica Brady with three wins 2007/08, 2009/10 and 2016/.17.  Terry O'Donovan held it for 2008/09, Barbara Donovan held it in 2011/12 and 2018/19, Brenda Langan 2012/13, Marie Kidney 2013/14, and Denise Byrne 2014/15. Linda McGeehan first won it in 2015/16, then in 2017/18 and now again 2019/20.
