How to Register for Swiss Teams
Please agree a time for all four players to login to BBO. To make it easy for those who don’t like to wake up early on Saturday, you can register at various times on Thursday and Friday as well.
Friday 9th October 2 – 4pm
Saturday 10 October 2020 8.00 and 9.45am
To register locate the BBO tournament: Hurlingham Fixtures SWISS TEAMS
COMPETITIVE – ALL TOURNAMENTS – Search – HURL
- Pair A registers as usual to tournament:
- After Pair A has registered, Then WHILE EVERYONE IS STILL ONLINE Player 3 either a) PC or laptop users log off and re-login to BBO using this link only: https://www.bridgebase.com/client/client.php (This link will request you to allow Adobe FLASH – say YES! It might fight you but do persist*. NB DO NOT USE an IPAD/TABLET/MAC* it will NOT work!). Once logged into BBO via this link the look and feel is a little different but you should be able to find your way to the same place you normally use to register. Go ahead and register with Player 4 as you would for a Pairs tournament. When this is done, you should see an option BUTTON to SELECT TEAMMATES. Click on it, locate your teammates partnership and click INVITE. When your teammates accept you are done(the player who invited from pair 1 should get the invite to accept).
or b) if everyone is on an i-device Call Nicole 07944744899 (if you email with a time I will make sure there is no clash!)
A couple of extra points to note.
BBO Swiss Teams was created using an older version of BBO software which has not yet been migrated to the latest version most players use. To that end only players using the above link will see the board imps following a match. Everyone else will see the results in VPS, but only at the end of the evening. For this reason, we update the match results every couple of rounds best we can and time permitting. We will post that link in the tournament chat during the game.
