  1. I need to pay for a tournament. My partner only paid for herself. Will I get a message to pay before game start?

    1. if you want to play with a partner, against other humans, look for tourneys that are listed as “pairs”. individual tourneys are you and a robot partner against other robots, then you compare your results to others doing the same thing. pair tourneys are must like a normal pairs game at your club.

  2. Just to clarify, is this tournament in addition to the 3 daily SYC games in which you play with a partner, or is it replacing those games. I hope it’s the former.

  3. Is there a way for players who have never played in a local club to identify a club to be supported?

    1. It’s still $5 for the SYC GAMES at the three times a day. These games are not visible until 2 hrs before. See “Highlights” (the second item in the “Messages” column.

  4. Non riesco a chattare al tavolo non riesco a edere gli angoli sti cosa devo fare ho Ipad ciao grazie

  5. Why not make all ACBL games optional SYC, where $1 would go to the clubs. e.g. all 1,25 games would have an option to pay 2.25. I think the clubs would earn more this way. Could keep the 5 dollar 18 board games as well.

  6. Sorry to be a bean counter and an MP-calculation novice, but what are A/B/C for these tournaments? Also, I see certain people winning exactly 2.0 MPs in these out of 2.5 MPs max repeatedly, often with less than awesome overall %ages. How can this occur? Are the 18 boards divided into multiple sessions somehow?

    Is it 6 or 5?

  8. I played in the support your club tournament yesterday afternoon and did not get my results

  9. In looking over the hand records and comparing my hands with other tables, I noticed that other tables had a different dealer for the same hand. In other words, the hand I bid had west as the dealer but another table had North as the dealer. This would make a difference in how the hand was bid and what the final result might be.

  10. I Iog in two hours before my game, my partner accepts invitation, I show convention card. WHY DO I HAVE TO KEEP RUNNING BACK TO COMPUTER every few minutes FOR THE NEXT TWO HOURS TO REFRESH??

    I have responsibilities in my home away from my computer. That is why I log in early.

    How often do you require me to refresh before logging me off? This is the most frustrating part of this whole BBO experience.

  11. after you register 2 hrs ahead, you can sign off. just come back a few minutes before game and sign back in.
