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.
BBO User Names ("Handles") can now be added to your Pianola profile! This will make it easier for other LBC members to connect with you through BBO to arrange games or simply exchange greetings.
Log in to Pianola, click on the down arrow in the box in the upper right (where your name appears) and go to My Account. Enter your BBO User Name in the BBO box under Online Bridge Accounts. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save Changes.
