San Jose Online Bridge Information Updated April 20, 2021

Questions? Contact Lynn Yokel, lynnyokel@gmail.com

During the Covid-19 Shelter-in-Place period, the San Jose Bridge Club is running many online games on the BBO website. Signup is free.

 

            BBO Website:              https://www.bridgebase.com/

            If you need help:         https://www.acbl.org/bbotutorials/#players 

 

There are two types of games:

·         Master point (MP) games include open and limited (499er). The charge for most games is $6. 499er games are $5. You need to deposit money to your BBO account before joining one of these games. To do so, select the BB$ target near the top of the screen. 80% of each entry fee goes to the San Jose club and its wonderful directors

·         Non-master point games are free and are currently being offered as a way for new players to get used to the BBO website.

 

To find our games:

·         Log on to bridgebase.com

o   For Master Point Games, select “Competitive” and then “ACBL Virtual Clubs”

(or select “Virtual Clubs” in the Featured Areas section and then “ACBL North America”)

o   For Non-Master Point Games, select “Competitive” and then select “Free Tournaments”

·         Our games are identified as San Jose. To find a game

o   Scroll through the list, organized in time order by minutes until start, or

o   Enter San Jose in the search bar on the right side near the top

·         Select the game, enter your partner’s BBO name, and select Invite. Your partner must be logged onto BBO when the invitation is issued

 

Partners: If you need a partner, there is a target called Partnership Desk at the top of the page after you select the appropriate tournament. It shows a list of people wanting a partner for this game. Play with someone who is waiting or enter your own name.

Little Known Fact: ACBL point awards are 150% of normal
