NEW RULES ON FACE COVERING
Covid-19 Update: Updated Rules on Face Coverings

FROM THE EBU:

In light of the recent update from the UK Government (8th Dec) we would recommend that clubs playing face-to-face follow these guidelines:

The government has announced that England will move to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.

From Friday 10 December the public, and staff in public facing areas, are required to wear face coverings in these additional settings:

  • community centres (including village halls), youth centres, members clubs and social clubs
AXE VIRTUAL BRIDGE CLUB

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.   

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.
