EBC ONLINE BRIDGE

Many of you have found ways to play bridge online.
We now have a VIRTUAL CLUB on Bridgebase Online (BBO).
We are able to offer ACBL masterpoins and unlimited tables,
but we have to charge a fee for this.

We offer many separate OPEN and INTERMEDIATE games.

In BBO, under Virtual clubs, then ACBL clubs, scroll through pending games,
look for VACB130096 and EDMONTON in caps.
It may be easier to find next time, if you 'follow' or 'friend' our VACB130096 identity.

 

Current Schedule of ONLINE Games

Mon & Fri Aft 12:30pm Open IMP Pairs.
Wed & Fri Aft 12:30pm Intermediate MP Pairs.
Wed Eve 7:00pm Open Stratified MP Pairs
Sat & Sun Aft 12:30pm Open Stratified MP Pairs

 

See Calendar below:


Make sure you have BB$ in your account and register.
Both players need to be online to register.
Starting Feb 14, the usual price is 5 $US per player.
(80% goes to supporting our club and directors)
Occasionally, the ACBL charges a higher sanction
which we have to add to the price.


Hand Records available on EBC Results Page Calendars


You do not have to be an ACBL member to play

but you do have to attach your ACBL member number

to your BBO profile to receive masterpoints.

Do this by going to ACBLworld, click blue button <Update ACBL Number>.

 

If you would like tutorials about BBO, some can be found <HERE>

The Bob Crosby Memorial Library

Robert (Bob) Crosby, who died in 2012, was one of Edmonton's most accomplished bridge players, as well as being a prolific coach and writer. Bob's insight, thoughtfulness, and clarity of expression are apparent here, in the almost 2,000 articles that he wrote during the last several years of his life.
