-BBO can start a game with a half table but cannot move to round 2 with a half table. BBO has a list of people who have indicated they are willing to act as substitutes for any tournament, the usual procedure is to use two people from the list to make up the half table. These people will probably not be from UK and therefore will probably not play Acol but it avoids the need for the club to have a designated standby pair.+BBO does not recommend using Sit Outs as BBO was not designed ​to use Sit Outs and they have not been tested by BBO. For normal movements they may work fine but it is at the club's risk.

 If the club has a designated standby pair then they can be brought in if the game the game starts with a half table.

-Yes there is. If the club chooses they can setup their games up so that the players do not pay anything when they register and the club is then charged for use of the BBO platform instead. The standard ​amount the club would be  charged by BBO would be $1 per person per session ​although if the club will be charging members more than £2.50 to play then BBO will increase this to 30% of what the club is charging. This is in line with the original price model where 30% of all table money is retained by BBO. The club would be responsible for collecting the table money from the players. The money charged by BBO would be collected by the EBU to pass on to BBO, in addition to the UMS (P2P) fees.+Yes there is.
