To play in the Devon RealBridge Ladder

In order to play in the Devon RealBridge Ladder (the first Wednesday of each month starting at 7.15pm), you need to register as a DVBC member (DVBC membership form).

Please note that registering for and playing in Club Realbridge sessions is conditional on members agreeing to pay for sessions when invoiced for them, or in any other way agreed with the club treasurer. Players registering for their partner will be responsible for ensuring their partner also respects these conditions.

We will try to accommodate latecomers and people without partners (log in for game, go to lobby and post a message asking if anyone else is free) but please do not leave it to the last minute as we need to finalise the movement before we start. 

For FAQ and guide to RealBridge

When you login for the first time please enter your name (Forename & Surname) and (in the ID Number field) your EBU Number (if you have one). This takes you to the lobby where you will see names of players in the lobby, and a table layout. Click on SIT at a table to sit there (opposite your partner if they got there first!)

For what happens at the table, go to RealBridge website https://realbridge.online/player-guide.html for player guide. Also click FAQs to check if your device is ok. Testing: Please use the link https://play.realbridge.online/camera.html to test your camera and microphone.

Message from RealBridge December 2021

RealBridge have asked us to send you some more advice about iPads that have been upgraded to iOS 15.

There is a problem where some iPads freeze when they arrive at a table. To solve this problem, RealBridge have updated their advice for iPads with iOS 15, and there are some more settings changes to make.

If you have an iPad, and you have iOS 15, please follow the instructions here:     https://realbridge.online/media-support-ios-15.html
 
Even if you did this during the past two weeks, please do it again, as the advice has changed.

If you have been in contact with RealBridge since Wednesday 8 December, they may already have asked you to make these changes. If so, you don’t need to do anything.  If you are not sure whether you have the latest settings, either go and check whether your iPad has the recommended changes, or contact RealBridge to check.

RealBridge are very happy to help people with this. If you need help, please contact them at: 0794 232 2209 [email protected]

Conditions of play in DVBC events on RealBridge

All Realbridge events are played with barometer scoring so that all tables play identical boards in each round and each Devon session will be run by a non-playing Director.

Movements

DVBC sessions will be played as single winner Howell or arrow-switched Mitchell movements in 2-board rounds.

Time per round

Each board will be allowed 7 minutes. There is a clock which shows time remaining on a round. Sitouts can happen (no more robots).

Laws

Laws of Bridge and EBU SkyBlue Book apply.

System Cards

Please upload your system card to the EBU website via My EBU (www.ebu.co.uk/article/new-system-cards-upload-my-ebuemail) so that you can provide a link to your card to your opponents (please also type a brief system summary in the chat box).

Finally

Anyone willing to help, or with any other suggestions, please contact Terence. ([email protected]).
