See you at the table!

Are You Missing Seeing Your Fellow Players?

Our club will start experimenting using Zoom's Breakroom feature when we play our Vitual Club Games. Anyone who is interested in seeing and conversing with other players will need to send Bob Sagor an email at rjsagor@gmail.com telling him so. Then you will receive an invitation to join our zoom session. The Zoom session will open 15 minutes before the game to allow socializing. During the game players will only see and be able to talk to the other players at their table. After the game there will be another short whole club meeting. For simplicity, Bob recommends to use a separate device such as an ipad or phone for the Zoom feature. Those facile with computers can run both BBO and Zoom on the same device by splitting the screen, but this is a level of complexity best left to individuals who know they can handle it.

Since the Zoom feature operates totally independently from the BBO games, players can opt out of the Zoom program without disturbing their game or anyone else’s.

There is an article about clubs using this feature in the July issue of the ACBL Bulletin on page 16.

Play Virtual Bridge Club Games on BBO


ALERT
The ACBL and BBO have purged all club eligible players lists of every name that has been manually added. What this means is that TONIGHT (June 23), every person who has asked to be made eligible for our game is no longer eligible unless Bob adds them again.
  • The club has NOT changed its eligibility requirements
  • HOWEVER, if you are not a member of the Northampton Club, the Greenfield Club, or the Pembury Club, and you want to play in our game, you need to be manually re-added to our eligible list
  • “Guests” or their partners, need to email Bob, rjsagor@gmail.com, with their BBO names so he can manually add them. This should be done so that the game can start on time with all interested players properly registered.

* Nearby clubs are listed here for your convenience.

* Good News: The Northampton Bridge Club Board has decided to reduce the price of our BBO games to $4.00 starting June 23.


Notes
  1. All Northampton members are allowed to play in all Pembury Bridge Club games, All Pembury Members are allowed to play in Northampton games.
  2. If you are registering for either Northampton or Pembury for the first time (you or your partner) then PLEASE register early. Do not wait till 15 minutes before game and find you cannot register. It’s a perfectly imperfect system. The best approach is to register 2 hours before start of event. Go offline if you want to, and come back 15 minutes before start time.
  3. If you do receive "Blocked" message when registering then the best approach is to email me both you and your partners BBO usernames ASAP. For Pembury games, email Rogbert690@gmail.com. For Northampton games, email rjsagor@gmail.com

Tips
  • To avoid accidentally putting in wrong bids, you can turn the "Confirm bids" on. To set that, login to BBO, click the "Account" tab, then click "Settings". Look under "Playing", and turn "Confirm bids" on. With that turned on, after each bid, you will need to click "OK" to commit your bid. If you notice a mistake on the bid before clicking "OK", you can just select a different bid.
  • What does the number next to a player name mean? In short, it is the total points the player earned on BBO (this includes ACBL master points and BBO points). To find detailed answer, click on your name button and then click the "Masterpoints" button. From there click "What's this". But please do not let a high number intemidate you because many good players have low numbers because they have just started playing on BBO. Just play your game with your partner and ignore the numbers.
  • How do I look at opponents’ cards? Convention cards are available in the blue button with 3 lines during play. You click the opposite direction (I.e. if you are N/S then you want to select E/W convention card).
  • What is the proper way to ask opponents to explain their bid? To ask about a particular bid you just need to select it during the bidding. It will prompt opponent who bid it to describe it or describe it further. This prevents cross talk in chat box. (I.e. your opponent bids 2h and you like to know what it means, just click the 2h bid) (I.e. if description not adequate or confusing. Click it again)
  • How to Alert my own bid? Click on the ALERT button in the bidding box area, just below where you select your bid. You should do this BEFORE selecting your actual bid. You can enter an explanation for the bid on the line next to the ALERT button. AFTER that, you enter your bid in the usual way. The alert (and explanation) are conveyed to your opponents, but not to your partner.
  • How to explain your own bid: Click on a bid that YOU have made, and a box will appear where you can enter information about that bid, which will be conveyed to your opponents.
  • Since there is no risk of conveying information to partner, the online culture is to give significantly more explanations to your opponents that you might have done face-to face. Even bids you think your opponents ought to understand, and which might not be alertable normally, might be worth a word or two of explanation (e.g. "5+ spades", or "11-15 hcp", or "negative"). Ethical players are forthcoming about their agreements, and don't wait to be asked.

You Can Earn Black Masterpoints on BBO

Starting Thursday, March 19, daily at 5 p.m. Eastern time, ACBL members can play with any other ACBL member in a specially created game on BBO and earn black masterpoints®. When you play in one of these games, the majority of your table fees will be given back to your club. This way, you can help to support your club while also having the opportunity to win black masterpoints. Please note that this is a temporary solution to what is hopefully a temporary problem.

The daily games are offered at 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. Playing as a partnership on BBO is just a few clicks away:

  • Simply log into your BBO account (you will need to create one if you don’t already have one)
  • Click on “ACBL World”
  • Click on “Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game”
  • You can read BBO’s instructions online.
For more information, click here to see the ACBL “SUPPORT YOUR CLUB GAME” FAQ.

Mentor Program Reminder

The Northampton Bridge club is once again offering the opportunity for C players to be mentored by an A player.

Mark Your Calendar for Our Unit Game in Great Barrington!

2020 WMBA Sectional in Great Barrington
August 1 - August 2

We previously announced our Sectional would be held in July, at the same time as the Nationals. We then found out that there is no Tournament Director available at that time, so we have postponed the Sectional to August 1-2, in Great Barrington. Please make sure you have it on your calendar so you can join us.
