How to improve your BBO award

As soon as you start playing on BBO you can start accruing BBO Points. These points are won whenever you play well enough in BBO premium games.

You don't need to be a great player to win points, and you'll get a shiny 2 on your profile as soon as you earn your first point. Win 4 more points and you'll be awarded a 3. Think of your points as rungs on a ladder – the more you play, the more you level up!

Climbing the BBO ladder is exciting and rewarding. Click on Competitive > BBO Points Tournaments to find all tournaments that award BBO Points. Most of the ACBL sanctioned and other NBO sanctioned games also award BBO Points, in addition to the national masterpoints they may give.

Points needed to level up

Players who've earned between 1 and 500 points will see a BBO award symbol on their profile. If the number includes a '+' it means the player has earned more than half of the points required for the next level.
