The Long Beach Bridge Center Board has voted to join the on-line Alliance Bridge Club for on-line games Money not being paid to the ACBL or Bridge Base will come to our club. Players will earn ACBL master points. Check out the Alliance Bridge Club site for instructions and results. If you are new to online play you can practice on Alliance website learning. There is also a class for learning to use Bridge Base on Alliance for $10 and you can retake the class without charge as many times as you like. Call the instructor at 516-652-9035 and she will add you to the class. Rene Hoffman has volunteered to assist all LBBC members with BBO. Her contact info was sent out in the April 29 email from Long Beach Bridge.
ACBL now has daily online bridge games on Bridge Base Online (BBO). The games start at 7:00am, 2:00 pm & 4:30pm. (PST). The “Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game” will funnel a portion of the proceeds back to our club. ACBL Black points are earned. Another chance to win are the special daylong tournaments with 18 boards played with Robots. You can pause and restart any time. For more info and a FAQ about both games, visit acbl.org/ClubSupportOnlineGames.
