  1. Non North American players are considered unlimited

    Can I ask why this is so?
    What is the point for Non North American players to win MP if they are already considered unlimited regardless of the points they have?
    Can they be called lifemaster?

  2. i signed up by mistake and they won't let me unregister....do es anyone know how to get a human being. to get help?

  3. hello the popup happened and i accidentally hit register instead of closing popup. it charged me for the tournament i cannot play and i want my money back. help. I don't know what to do.

  4. I logged on BBO today and your window came up with $25 voucher for me.
    I then went to buy some BBO$ to buy the 25$ registration.
    I cannot see my 25$ voucher.
    Please help.

  5. I have sufficient bbo $ balance in my account, I am unable to register. I am applying with in the time limit for 10$ discount. I need your assistance,you may enroll me for the tournament with robots and take out money

  6. I played in the free practice - thanks/1 It shows me I am not strong enough player against robots. I hope to get more tips. Funny, I thought I did worse on 2nd day but had a better score. I really want to compete for red & gold so please keep up the tourneys.

  8. Oh, hell no. You have to play the robot's card, hon. Good luck with that! I'm trying to figure out if I can learn 0314 keycard and two way game tries and responses in this lifetime.

    1. Do they have a card? They lie about everything. You can't rely on the robots bidding. I just bid NT two times as I knew that is where we belonged. The robots are programmed to rely on partnership play. They just bid their hand. What a waste of $50 that would be

      1. I agree twice the other night in instant tournament I bid 3nt and everyone else was there making plus 2 the robot takes it to 4 spades only having 5 spades and went down 3 so frustrating another time I am 5 5 in the black suits void in hearts and three diamonds headed by AK the robot passed initially then jumps in at 2 hearts with 6 hearts to the 10 I reluctantly go 2nt now the robot goes 3 hearts I had to take it out with my void and went 3 nt down 4 doubled robot only had 6 points and shouldnt have bid at all was having a good game till this happened and got 0 percent on it ...robots definitely suck

    1. Oh, hell no. You have to play the robot's card, hon. Good luck with that! I'm trying to figure out if I can learn 0314 keycard and two way game tries and responses in this lifetime.

  9. Les robots m'ont vraiment frustré aujourd'hui. J'ai fait parvenir un message à BBO. Ils doivent vraiment soigner la programmation de ces robots. A 2 reprises, ils ont chuté sans raison. J'ai donc perdu des points et de l'argent. Je ne suis pas certaine de vouloir jouer le tournoi. Je ne fais pas confiance aux robots.

    J'ai dejà payé et je voudrais annuler, comment le faire?
    Merci d'aviser.

  10. I din't realize this was a Robot tournament, and have already signed up and paid. How can I cancel my registration? I play with my husband, a non-robot.
    Thanks.

  11. I have $20 bridge bucks. Can I use them for the individual robot tourney? I haven’t tried using on BBO, but I don’t think they accept them.

  12. How do i sign up for the free practice games on November 6th and 7th?

    Also, how do I register tonight for the November 21-23 games?

    I am unable to open the link - please help

    1. Hi, Click on ACBL world then you have the ACBL Fall NABC Robot and the Practice in the second position. Click on those you want to register.
      To play the practice of tomorrow, you'll have to come again to this place and click on practice 2

  13. I cannot find a link to the practice rounds this weekend. I did sign up for the tournament and thought I would get a link to the practice round.

  14. 2000 is very low for bottom of top bracket. Also can I pay extra for a smart robot instead fo one of the idiots that keeps repeating his 5 card suit when you’re void and/or jumps tp six of your suit when he has one and underleads Aces in suit contracts?

    1. 24 boards per day. They can be played anytime between midnight and midnight US Eastern Time. You can stop and resume later, as long as it's before midnight (and with enough time left to complete your boards before the daily session ends).

  15. The tournament is an individual with robots. You do not need a partner to register.

    It is stratified (Unlimited/2000/500) and awards red and gold masterpoints, as well as an NABC title to the winner.

    Entry fee is 50 BB$. If you register between November 6 and November 16 there is an early bird discount of 10 BB$, so it will cost 40 BB$ if you register early.

    This covers all three days, you only pay once.

    1. Hello, where did you get the info about the cost ? so if I register between Nov. 6th - Nov. 16th there will be $40.00 ? My big question : is the $40.00 for all 3 days (Nov. 21,22 & 23) ?
      Thank You ,

  16. Never mind (to my previous question)....i belatedly found the answer (how many free entries).

  17. Are there 3 Flight A winners (free entries)? One each for Saturday and Sunday 1st overall, and one more for 1st overall for the 2 days?

  18. Sounds interesting. But I am not quite understanding how it works. Might one presume one signs up as an individual and is matched with a robot, then plays against a similar robot-human team? What are the costs?
