The Bridge Center is Closed Until Safe to Reopen - But this is a great time to play and learn online!

ACBL has partnered with Bridgebase online BBO to offer games which support our club and the duplicate bridge community. https://www.bridgebase.com. Whether your goal is to learn, to practice casually, to play competitively, or to accumulate masterpoints, there is an online option to keep you participating until we can be together again. Many excellent tutorials are available to familiarize you with BBO. Click here.

If you need help with BBO or with connecting to our virtual club games, contact: Frank Grossman at (949) 366-5499 fbgrossman@cox.net or Janie Matlaf at (949) 233-2140 jmatlaf@gmail.com

GAME RESULTS: You can learn everything about every board in the Game Results tab. Click on Common Game, the game you're interested in, the board, the person, and you can watch a full replay of that board at that person's table. See the lead, the offense, and the defense step by step. The diagram of the hand will appear, and by clicking NEXT, you can watch the play trick by trick.

CALENDAR: Keep an eye on our calendar tab for the latest online schedule.

If you are not receiving club emails, contact Janie Matlaf (949) 233-2140 to be sure we have your most current email address.

Many businesses are reopening, others will not survive. We would much prefer to be in the former category rather than the latter. Until we can make 'virtual' a thing of the past, and be together in person again, we urge you to  join us and support our club games as often as you can. Keep Frank's phone number handy (949) 366-5499 in case you run into technical problems getting into a game, lose your connection, or can volunteer to fill-in should someone lose their connection. On days that Marshall directs, he can be reached at (949) 713-9119.
