Try again, there was a problem with the daylong style tourneys foir a bit, but back to normal now.
Link is broken while playing a hand...What could we do???
Sorry about that. There were some technical problems on Day 2. It will be eliminated entirely from the overall results at the end of the tournament, and only Days 1, 3, 4... 9 will count.
What is going on with the 9-day survivor tournament? Supposedly you eliminate the bottom 20% every day and you are eliminated if you don't play. Day 2 and 3 had the same number of tables. And in fact more players actually played in Day 3 than Day 2. Please fix this. It's not any fun to commit to a tournament that if we make it to the end is a 9-day commitment, but you're not even eliminating the players you should be.
Can’t register for water lilies marathon even though I qualify - just has link that says about
The waterlily is open now, it was still processing when you tried first time.
Water.ily 6 day marathon won’t let me play. It just has a link that says about even though I qualified
Glad to see BBO changed the Glorious Daylong payout from 60% (first day) to 80% (second day). Good job BBO choosing to make it fairer (or correcting a mistake). Thanks!
Is it 5BBO per day or 5BBO for all 9 days combined?
There are two events with 5 BB$ entry fee: the Rainbow Teams, which is 5 BB$ per player for the entire event (7 days) and the glorious daylong reward, which is 5 BB$ per player and it's a daily event, there is a new one every day. For the daylong reward, 80% of the entry fees are paid back in prizes to the top finishers so you invest, but win it back if you do well.
I assume all times are EDT?
$5 “Glorious Daylong” is extremely inglorious.
First day—60% or so payoff (rough calculation)—so house cut, an enormous 40% (BBO—please let me know if I’ve miscalculated). Other similar BBO games 10%-20% house cut.
I didn’t play first day to see payoff; now of course I’ll never play this game.
BBO—of course you can run your site however you want, but I’m very disappointed you don’t affirmatively disclose only 60% returned in prizes.
There was a problem with the schedule today, we apologize for the inconvenience. The 7PM Swiss was not created, as it should have been. We'll fix this for the rest of the festival.
can't find sign in for 7PM Springtime Swiss Teams. Please help.l
can't find listing for 7PM Springtime Swiss Team and it's 30 minutes to game time.
is this tourney for acbl masterpoints?
This is a BBO events, not an ACBL one. There are BBO Points awarded, not ACBL.
I guess on Glorious Daylong winner receives $15 and prize fund is 80%. But we will see tomorrow.
For the $5 daylongs, what percent of the entry fees will be returned in prizes? It says 40% of the entrants will win something, but not what per cent of the entry fees will be returned in prizes.
According to results only 30%
Will you have a partnership desk for individuals?
In individuals you do not need a partner. You can register alone and BBO will partner you either with robots, if it's a robot tourney, or with random players, if it's an indy with humans.
