Setting Up a Convention Card on BBO
If you play on BBO with a regular partner, having a card set up is convenient for you and courteous to your opponents, who can then quickly see your bidding and carding agreements. You may create different convention cards for each of your partners.
For instructions on how to set up your convention cards, click here.
You can see opponents' convention cards by clicking on the 3 blue lines in the box at the top left of the screen.
For LBC's virtual club games, the ACBL OPEN convention chart is used for Open games and those with a Masterpoint limit above 200. The ACBL BASIC+ chart is used for games with a masterpoint limit of 200 or less. See ACBL website here for details.
In the spring of 2023, the ACBL approved a request to “pool” our online community with neighbouring clubs in Unit 249! This meant that more local players had easy access to all online games within Unit 249. These local games within Unit 249 appear in your “ACBL – North America” games list.
Subsequently, the ACBL revised its policy towards managed access to online BBO games to that of an open policy. Any ACBL member can now play in any BBO game.
The "pooling" of our online community encourages bigger games, for both the enjoyment of the players and the bottom lines of the clubs. PLEASE support online games from LBC and all our Unit 249 partners whenever you can. We all win when we buy locally!
Visitors from other clubs are welcome to join any of our Online games.
