BBO Online Tournament Information
BBO Online Tournament Information

Hello Members, all the information listed below is current at this point in time. If there are any changes, this information will be updated as soon as I am aware of it. The best way to keep up to date is by logging in to our Bridgewebs site every so often and also by looking at " The Racquet" which is published and sent out to all members on a regular basis. Other websites include the NIBU and the various Bridgewebs of the clubs involved especially Kelvin Malone and Derryvolgie.

NIBU ONLINE

Kelvin Malone

Diane Greenwood Pairs Wed 7pm. Registration from 5pm, all welcome,undos allowed, 18 boards with 7mins per board, cost $2. Tournament is NIBU130

 

If you wish to play in any of these, you and partner must be online at same time and at least 10 mins before but I would recommend registering an hour before. Once registered, you can log off but return at 10 mins before the start.

If a board is timed out, in most of these, an adjusted score will be made according to what the director believes what the final result would be. This is to stop deliberate slow play

 

To find a particular tournament, this depends on if it is free or not

Free Tournaments. Go to Competitive>Free>Pending> search for relevant host

Paid Tournaments. Go to Featured Area>Virtual Clubs>Other Countries>Pending>search for relevant host

BBO $ can be purchased on BBO main page

 

Undo's are not always allowed so it is recommended that you go into your personal account and under settings, turn on "confirm bids". This ensures every time a bid is made, you have to confirm it first

. I expect from 1st August, no free tournaments will be allowed. I would also recommend our members to play in the NIBU tournaments. If anybody needs any further help in this matter, please don't hesitate to contact me

Immediate Suspension of Bridge Play Monday 16th March 2020

Dear Members

Because of the rapid and evolving situation with regard to Covid-19, Bridge play at Windsor is now suspended including Monday 16th March 2020.

 

Please follow our bridgewebs page for updates.

Also, I would urge anyone who has not given Brian their email address that they now do so. This is in order to keep everyone posted with any updates. Brian may be contacted via his mobile number which can be found on our bridgewebs page.

THE REVOKE
THE REVOKE

A revoke is established when the offender or partner leads or plays to the next trick. If attention is made before this happens then the revoke card becomes a Major penalty card ( to be explained another time)

1) If the offending player wins that trick, then one trick is transferred to the non-offending side along with only one of any subsequent tricks won by the offending side

2) If the offending side do not win the revoke trick and also no subsequent trick then there is no penalty ie no tricks transferred

However if neither of these two cases apply, one trick is transferred. If the non-offending side believe they have been insufficiently compensated, the TD has the power to adjust the score
