 HELLO ALL CLUB MEMBERS

Whilst play in our local bridge clubs is suspended, many of us who will be missing the enjoyment of duplicate bridge and may like to play on-line.  It would also be great if we could play with and against other members of Diana Harvey’s Bridge Clubs as we are used to on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10’oclock.

Bridge Club Live is an online club, is UK based, has strong standards of behaviour and ethics and many members play Benji/Acol. I am a life member (21 years) of Bridge Player Live and play there often.

Link: www.bridgeclublive.com (best to type this in yourself rather than follow link) which is offering a 30-day Trial for the princely sum of £1 + VAT (normally £10) after which it costs £5.99 a month. We should be able to play in the Teams of Four Room if there is sufficient interest, we could set up a virtual club and agree a regular weekly event time, which in our case should be 10’oclock on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning, all 4 clubs are welcome at any day, but please arrive by 09:45.

You need to join the Club A.S.A.P and make sure you find our club and become a member. Please try and familiarize yourself with the site.

For those used to playing duplicate Match Pointed pairs there is also a Daily Match Pointed Pairs Room where one can play up to 96 boards every day with auto-movement every 4 boards. Affectionately known as DIDO, short for Drop In-Drop Out, you only commit to play 4 boards at a time but can return whenever you like. You can arrange to play with your normal Face to Face partner if you are both members. There are no robots and the site is well policed so quitting and abuse are not tolerated.

EBU members can also earn Master Points in the DIDO Room.  Benji Acol, Standard American and Basic Acol are the most common systems played, but anything at EBU Level 4 is allowed.

To play in the competitive rooms you and your partner must complete a 5-line Simple Systems Disclosure card (a mini convention card) with your partner before you play. Hand records are available after you have played and you can even see how everyone else bid and played each hand.

Each day for the DIDO room a ladder is produced showing you scores from the day before. New from today is a club dedicated ladder which will be produced just for the Diana Harvey Bridge Clubs. Note, however, that in the Match Pointed Pairs Room you will play against people from all over the world.

To register with BCL go to www.bridgeclublive.com/ register and then press subscriptions and pay for a 30 day trial. Then after payment wait about 15 mins and press members – club- Diana Harvey Bridge Clubs and you should be there.

We hope to start playing this Tuesday and Wednesday Morning at 10.00 a.m. and ask members who wish to join us to assemble online at 9.45 am  in the “Teams of Four” Room with or without a pre-arranged partner and will try to get some good bridge going.
