|As many of you know the ABF has entered an arrangement with BBO which allows Australian Clubs to run paid and Masterpointed sessions on the platform. There are many clubs (including Bill at Northern) who are running these sessions.
Since we began running sessions online we have been pushing for Masterpoints to be allocated for online games and we are very happy that the ABF has provided for this. Bridge Vid is not an affiliated club (and has no intention of affiliating) however, we strongly believe that players should be taking part in Masterpointed games where there is an option.
Our online games through BBO will be gradually phased out by the end of May. Although we are wrapping up our online play sessions with BBO have a new and exciting online play initiative that we can’t wait to share with you. There will be more details on this in the coming week or two.
Here is our schedule for sessions until the end of May. Sessions with a strikethrough will not be held. Our final game to be on Saturday May 30th at 1.30pm.
We have taken into account the sessions that are available at other clubs while planning our phase out. We encourage you to contact Bill Jacobs at Northern Bridge Club who is happy to welcome you at his paid and Masterpointed games or the VBA which is running a variety of paid Masterpointed sessions and free games featuring different scoring formats.

Voluntary contributions are only accepted by credit card.
The form on the right can be used to enter a custom payment amount.
Our online play tournaments were previously costing $5 per game and are now on a voluntary contribution basis. Contributions can be made as regularly as you like but please be aware that we are charged a 30c transaction fee (+% amount) each time you make a payment. As such our preference is for lump sum payments rather than many smaller contributions. Maximum amount of $50 please.
50% of cleared revenue from each contribution will go to the club that you have chosen to support.
