Year End Congress Player Information

December 24, 2021

For players due to play in the Year End Congress please read the below information:

The Congress starts at 11:00am on Monday 27th December.

RealBridge player links will be on the results page. Once logged on sit down (opposite your partner or with your team) at any table. For Swiss Pairs there will be a random draw once everyone is seated.

You will also find the programme and other information on the event results page along with the links for the sessions as they become available. After the sessions are complete you will also find results there.

Please note that you are required to have video and audio, and you must use them unless technical issues prevent it.

This event uses self-alerting without screens as detailed in the programme, with typed explanations sent to both opponents by the player making the call. Requests for further information also go as typed messages to the player making the call.

You must provide a link to your system card to your opponents each round. If you do not already have one, please upload your system card as a pdf to your My EBU, under utilities, system card, and follow the instructions provided. Help in creating a system card and converting it to a pdf can be found here.

Although you may refer to your system cards, you do not get any extra time for doing so and you may not make any notes during the auction or play of a hand.

Undos are only allowed in the auction for mis-clicks, or for cases of misinformation. You should always first call the TD when an undo is requested (you may need to refuse the undo request first in order to access the TD button).

When you log on to play, please enter your name as found on your EBU record, in proper case (eg John Smith, not JOHN SMITH, john smith or John S), along with your EBU number without leading zeros (105719 not 00105719).

For emergency assistance on the day, please contact Robin Barker on 01296 317223.
