18 Boards, Nine 2 Board rounds. 16 minutes per round. Table Money 3BB$
To play in this event you and a partner need to be registered on BBO and have some BB$ in your account - PayPal offers a good exchange rate but you can pay by credit/debit card.
Registration starts at 5.16pm on Mondays and 12.16pm on Thursdays. Both you and your partner need to be online on BBO to register. Go to Competitive/All Tournaments and search for "Trowbridge", select the trowBRIDGEclub pairs event from the list and enter your partners name. They will get an Invitation Pop up to accept and once they do, the pair of you are registered.
If you register early please make sure you and your partner are online and in the Competitive area of BBO 10-15 minutes before the event starts. If you and your partner are not online and in the Competitive area at the start of the event you will not be allowed to play. (This is not under the Directors control!)
Your Directors will be Stan Christie, Phil Meats and Gerry McAinsh.
When the event starts BBO will automatically log you into the event and you will remain logged into it until the event finishes so if you lose connection for any reason just log back into BBO and you will rejoin the event. If you are absent for a while, the directors substitute a robot who will finish the play of the board and you will rejoin at the start of the next board.
Please introduce yourselves and advise the opposition what your basic conventions are at the start of each round.
The rounds are timed and when the time is up, if you have not finished playing, play will cease and the two pairs at that table will be given an adjusted score, normally by the system, but the Directors can review the adjusted scores and change them later. Please claim as soon as you can and leave any “chat” about boards until you have played both the boards in the round.
