Dedicated ABF National Online Pairs Page

The ABF has decided to institute a weekly online BBO (Red point) session which will be open to all registered ABF players.  The main objective is to provide an opportunity to play online to those ABF players who do not have access to ABF Club Games.

The first of these Nationwide Pairs sessions will be held on Sunday May 31 at 2.30 pm AEST.  Due to time zone differences a 2.30pm start in the Eastern States will allow for a 2.00pm start in South Australia and 12.30pm start in Western Australia.  The intention is that this will be a regular (weekly) event with a standard entry fee of 3 BB$.

The event will appear as ‘ABF Nationwide Online Pairs’ under the host name ‘ABF_TD9’.  It will be of 24 boards duration and because of the expected wide variation in experience of the participants, the session will run at the relatively leisurely pace of 7 minutes per board.

The session will become visible in the ‘pending’ competitions section of BBO two hours prior to the scheduled start time.  Those pairs who wish to play may then enter from that point forward (i.e., between 12:30 and 2:30 AEST).  Both members of the partnership must be online in order to enter and they must ensure that they are back on-line at the scheduled start time, otherwise the system will automatically exclude them.

For those who have not played previously on BBO the following link may be of assistance:

In order to play in these events, a player must be an active member of the ABF and must have registered their BBO username on the ABF Mailing List (  Username registration needs to have been completed by 6.00 pm on Saturday May 30, since late applications are not able to be accepted.
