BBO Online Help

Just the highlights

Welcome to Bridge Base Online, bridge players. Here you can find all things bridge related. You can play according to your level, or play up with higher level partners and opponents. You can fine tune your bidding with your favorite partner by using our "Partnership Bidding" option at any table. You can practice with our bridge-playing GIB robots - a good way to learn a 2/1 system. Pull up a chair in our Main Bridge Club or Relaxed Bridge Club and play with old friends or friends yet to be. Are you interested in ACBL Masterpoints? Join our ACBL sanctioned tournaments - there's a game starting every hour from 8am until the last one at 2am, every day. Like the Robots? Earn masterpoints by playing in our frequent Robot games where you can win BBO and ACBL Masterpoints, or even BB$. No partner? No problem. All tournaments have a partnership desk open before every game.

This international bridge site welcomes players from the four corners of the world. Play in our Sky Club, BBO Land, BBO Turkiye, BBO Poland, BBO Italia and ILACY tournaments and win BBO masterpoints. The number you see on a player's profile corresponds to the numbers on a deck of cards. Watch that number go up as the players win more BBO points.

Bridge players are a competitive bunch, so we offer various contests during the year with prizes for the winners. Here on BBO you can find yourself at a table with an absolute beginner all the way up to the highest level of World Class players. These high level players are the ones with a 'star' by their name -- many of them are available for private lessons and coaching.

The people with the 'yellow' names either work here on BBO or are volunteers who are here to help those new to Bridge Base Online. So look around, click the buttons, see what's available, ask questions when you need to, and have fun playing bridge!

We're glad you're here.
