Instructions for playing It’s Your Call, Victoria
Our local version of It’s Your Call is in fact identical to the one in the Bridge Bulletin. The only difference is that rather than competing against potentially 100 000 ACBL members, your opponents are all from Unit 431 (Victoria and the Gulf Islands). And there are 525 of us. So your chances of winning are a lot better.
Results will be posted on our website (bridgevictoria.ca) a couple of days after the solutions are published in the Bridge Bulletin. In addition to bragging rights, the winner will receive a free play at one of the local clubs, also valid at Unit 431 tournaments.
How to fill in the form:
Start by entering your name, email, and ACBL number (this field is mandatory and used to verify you are indeed a Unit 431 member). You don’t have to input your name and email but then we’ll never be able to get back to you. If you don’t want your name shown when we publish the results, just check the button next to “
Now for the nitty-gritty:
Underneath each of the 5 bidding problems, you have the equivalent of a bidding box. Just click on the bid you want. It used to be possible to underbid, but we have adopted ACBL’s practice of only showing legitimate bids (those higher than the last bid, as well as Pass, Double and Redouble when appropriate).
Once you’ve entered your bids for the five problems, click the Submit button and you’re done. You will see a confirmation message and will also receive a confirmation email with your bids within 30 minutes.
You can submit new results up to the posted deadline. If you do submit multiple sets of results, we will only consider the last set, and all the previous ones will be deleted.
If you’re still uncertain of how to go about it, please email the webmaster for further instructions.Return to IYC
