ECatsBridge/WBF Charity Pairs

How it works !

We will run five events, from the Monday to Friday in the last week of January - 25th - 29th with different hands each day. The main platforms for playing will be BBO and RealBridge - unfortunately BCL are unable to set it up on this occasion.

There is no set entry fee - this is an event that is played for fun and you are simply asked to request players to make a donation - as much as they can afford - to be sent on to the Charity. Best if they send individual payments, rather than you as a club trying to collect it on this occasion - details of how to do that are here

We hope as many of you as possible will join us. If you can't - well maybe your players can participate at another club that is playing or maybe they would just like to donate anyway and send us the proceeds to forward on to the Charity... they will be just as welcome, whether you play the set hands or not !

If you want to play our hands and have it scored on line, this is what happens:

Start off by emailing us and tell us :

a. the name of your club
b. where you are located - the town and country
c. the email address you need the file sent to
  and (very important)
d. which day you want to play

And we will send you the deal files - the set is 24 boards - and a copy of the commentary so you can check the right files are uploaded and also email it to your players after the event. But please don't put it on your website until the next day.

After you have played the event you need to create the XML file and send it to us. All the details for uploading the files to BBO and for sending us the XML are here - please note that when you send the XML the subject line must be the session number and your country and NOTHING else. And please only attach the XML file - just one !

The commentaries will be available on the website at 10pm on the evening of each event - please make sure that you don't send them out or put them on your own site before then and if you are uploading the results to your own site, please don't show the hands and frequencies until then either.
