When you log into BBO, you will land in the Lobby. To find the tournament, click on Competitive:
And then click on BBO Points Tournaments:
Now… look through the list of tournaments for this:
Click on the Tournament called MasterBridge Online Individual.
This will take you to the Register tab – now just click on the blue Register button. You can confirm you entry has been successful by clicking on Entries.
You will need to have enough BBO dollars in your account to play – these can be purchased here: https://www.bridgebase.com/purchase/pay.php
It is better to buy BBO dollars on a regular computer (laptop or desktop) because Apple/Google apply a surcharge when you buy BBO dollars on a phone or tablet.
That’s it! You do not need to stay logged into BBO until the start time but please log in no later than 5-10 minutes before the game starts to be safe. If you are not logged in at the start time the game will automatically start without you. Also note that if you are logged into BBO but idle (not doing anything) BBO may send you a message asking if you want to remain logged on – reply YES !
