In March when I have completed training for one of my clubs to convert to RealBridge, I would like to run a weekly session of RealBridge session to allow players to become more familiar and experienced with the platform. Over time more of our congresses, as well as state and national events are using RealBridge as it is more pleasant socially as well as more open and so providing less opportunities for cheating.
This is a message for iPad users. If you are using the App for BBO you will need to go to the Apple Store and update the App.
Some iPad users have forgotten the way to pay for sessions without incurring the extra costs from Apple, etc. You need to use Safari and search for Bridgebase Online to get to the version that is online. Then log in and you will see in the top right hand corner your BBO name and next to that a button saying "BB$". Once you press on that button it is self explanatory.
With lovely weather and a lot more freedom of movement I have decided to reduce my Quiet Club sessions to two sessions a week.
On Monday 2pm and Thursday 2pm
I will continue to use BBO
If you are interested in RealBridge (and the feedback has been great) I will invite players after our BBO sessions to have a go with RealBridge for a few hands in order to become familiar with the platform. Read the info in the RealBridge tab above as well. Later in the year we will be able to have some interclub competitions using RealBridge as BBO do not have the capacity to do it.
I have reworked the page on "Once-only Setup steps" to make it easier to understand.
I have started a Questions and Answers section under RealBridge and I hope to add to it as I am asked questions.
Also I have added a RealBridge Etiquette page with some general guidelines.
Here are the 2020 ABF Masterpoint promotions that occurred last year. Well done to those who went up to the next level on the masterpoint ladder!
If you ever want to see how you are progressing, you just need to go to the ABF Masterpoint Centre site, type in your name and then press details. You will then see when you obtained masterpoints, from which clubs and how many.
