A GREAT REMINDER WHY WE LOVE TO PLAY BRIDGE

PLAY BRIDGE ONLINE
For those of you who are having ‘bridge withdrawal’ the good news is there are some competitive online options that you can play
The most popular of these seems to be BBO (Bridge Base Online). You can play free or pay a small fee to participate in some tournaments. You can simply login with a user name and password. If you need any help txt or call Carol 0274536040. Here is a very helpful tutorial about getting started on BBO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MldFbBdea90. David Cossar has kindly compiled a document to further explain how to navigate the site. Click here to view Davids notes.
The Auckland Bridge Club is running a daily tournament for free at 1:30 pm and 7:30 pm on BBO. To find these events, type in "kiwis by AKBC" in the search field. Any New Zealander can play, so if you are interested, go to the Competitive section of BBO, then Tournaments and search for the Auckland event. Here you can register with your partner or place your name at the Partnership Desk.
One tournament I recommend is the Speedball held on the hour every hour 12 boards in an hour. The fee for this is $US1.25
Alternatively, you can get 3 friends together and start a table in BBO. You can chat, practice and see how you compare with others playing the same hands. Click on this link to get started
There is also Sky Bridge which is primarily for Junior players. Click on this link to go to Sky Bridge
ALL PLAY SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Based on NZBridge recommendation that all bridge clubs close their doors we are suspending all sessions, interclub, tournaments and lessons immediately until further notice. NZBridge plan to re-evaluate on 9th April to see whether closure should be extended or if it is okay to reopen. We will update you of any changes.
