Long Beach Bridge Center will be closed until further notice. Please continue to check back for updates.
The Long Beach Bridge Center Board has voted to join the on-line Alliance Bridge Club for on-line games instead of holding our own 12:05 pm online game. Money not being paid to the ACBL or Bridge Base will come to our club. Players still earn ACBL master points. The number of games will increase to 5 open games per weekday (3 on weekends) as well as 8 limited games per weekday (6 on weekends). 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.
If you would like to donate directly to the club please send a check payable to “Bridge Brigade” (EIN #81-4460773)
