HOW TO REGISTER FOR OUR REGULAR GAMES ON BBO
Registration for our daily Open games on BBO open two (2) hours before game-time. See here for our daily schedule.
To sign up for the game, both you and your partner need to be logged into BBO via: https://www.bridgebase.com or the BBO app on your tablet or phone.
When you log into BBO, you will land in the Lobby. To find our 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 Pairs – MasterBridge Online to invite your partner to play.
This will take you to the Register tab ( on the left in the image below) – make sure your partner is also logged in to BBO in order to invite them to play.
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.
Either you or your partner can invite the other player.
Type your partner’s name on the Partner line and then click on the Invite button when it turns blue.
This sends an invitation to your partner (who must also be logged into BBO).
When they accept the invitation you will both get a message on your screen confirming your entry. You can confirm you entry has been successful by clicking on Entries.
If you want, you can also pay for both your partner and yourself by clicking on the box next to that option, as in the image above.
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 !
