Scoring a Pairs Event

Bridgemate Scoring

We assume here that you are using Bridgemates, and not one of the other Wireless systems.

To get going, click in turn on the three buttons in the bottom left of the window…

  1. (Optional) 'Set BCS Options'. This allows you to change, for example, the way your Bridgemates record and display information.
    If you don't use this, EBUScore should use the same settings that you last used.
  2. 'Create Database', and confirm.
    (This button will now be greyed out, and the following button will cease to be).
  3. 'Launch BCS'.

In principle, all you need to do now is to sit and wait while all the information comes from the players at the tables. The numbers in the main window show how many results have been achieved at each table in each round.
While you are waiting, you might like to explore what's available on the 'Reports' tab.
Once all results are in, you can 'Return' to the Event Menu, and click on 'Reports' in order to display results.

In practice, of course, things don't always go so smoothly…

Provided that you have not exited from the event as a whole (i.e. clicked on 'Exit Event' on the Event Menu), when you return to the 'Bridgemate Scoring' screen, EBUScore will continue to retrieve scores automatically.
If for some reason you have exited, then when you return, the 'Create Database' button will not be greyed out. You will need to click this again - but click on 'No' when you the warning message appears that the database already exists!
