We're very excited to announce our first on line duplicate session on Wednesday at 1.45pm.
This is our trial run & we're depending on your support to make it a success. In order to participate, you need to do the following:
Go in to BBO (Bridge Base Online) & register to obtain a a user name (if you don't already have one).
Send your username to firstname.lastname@example.org before Tuesday 4pm.
Register to play in the session. (Details of how to do this will be provided tomorrow.) Registration opens at 11.45am on Wednesday, so make sure you get in quickly.
Login on BBO to play in the session at least 15 minutes before the start time. BBO does not wait for latecomers!
Just before the start time of 1.45, login to BBO to play in the HHBC tournament.
Please note that, at this stage, there is no cost to players. Our directors will be Brian & Angie.
If you haven't played on BBO before. it is strongly recommended that you login & practice before the duplicate session. If you want to practice by yourself, login to BBB, click Solitaire & you can practice playing with 3 robots.
There is a very instructive video from Peter Hollands' YouTube video about using BBO.
Also, Paul Gibson has a set of 27 short videos on using BBO & at the very least, you should learn how to alert bids (you alert your own bids on BBO) & how to undo bids if you inadvertently make the wrong one.
Hope this all helps. Look forward to seeing you all online.
