ONLINE BRIDGE GAMES

In the current circumstances with bridge clubs closed and events cancelled, many of our members will be thinking of playing online bridge. Some will already be familiar with the options below (there may be more providers, which could be added to this list if we are informed of them) but here is some information to help those who do not play online, to point them in the right direction to investigate the various options. We will be adding to this as things progress.

Bridge Club Live is a UK based bridge provider (so most of the bridge played is using Acol for bidding), which runs a variety of partnership games for those who subscribe. There is a free Guests room for players to try it out. Since it is British, Acol is the main bidding system in use.

Funbridge hosts our regular daily online robot games, which give EBU master points. Information about them is available on our webpage

Bridge Base Online (BBO) is the largest international online bridge provider. Signing up and playing in many of the games is free, though they do have some tournaments that are paid for. Since it is an American company payment is in dollars and the most common bidding systems are Standard American type (sayc or 2/1).

Update on EBU BBO games with master points.

These have now started and there will be a 12-board game at 2pm, 3.30pm, 7.30pm and another at 9pm.  Each game will cost $1 and you will need to buy some BBO$ in advance.

Visitors
Visitors

Visitors are welcome, preferably with a partner. However, if you are a single, to avoid disappointment, contact  (Steve Pedrick 01934 712852) to ensure that there is a member or another visitor requiring a partner to play with. 

BEST BEHAVIOUR AT BRIDGE

Asking for explanations and not bidding.

 Do not ask what a bid means unless you are intending to bid. Asking for explanation without bidding could, in certain circumstances, be construed as passing unauthorised information to one‘s partner. If one doesn‘t intend to bid, questions of the opponents, should be made after the auction has concluded.
