I've played (badly) in a few of these before.

If allowed, I would like to play in Challenge Event #9.

First time join. Please let me know what need to do.

A few months ago I wrote a template for future challenge events, you can find it here: link. Some of that is not relevant for event #9 but the following extract may be helpful to newcomers:

Quote

What is a challenge event?
A challenge event is an innovative form of bridge tournament in which the participants play BBO challenges sent to each other. After the start of the event there will be an announcement in post #1 of this forum on who you will play against. For the time frame of this event see [post #11 of the forum for event #9]. The event is free of charge.

How to take part in this event
Before the event:
- Read this post completely.
- Make sure you have understood how to send and play challenges. (See this link if you don't know how challenges work.)
- Make sure you have sufficient time to play the challenges while the event is running.
During this event:
- Play challenges sent to you.
- Send challenges to your other opponents. Make sure the challenges match the format of this event.
- The players of a challenge must report the result to this forum (usually it's done by the last player to play the challenge).
- Check the score table occasionally. A link will be added to post #1 once the event has started.
- Keep track who you haven't played against yet and make sure you play all challenges in time.
- Keep up to date, please check the forum every ~ 24 hours.

[...]

Challenge information and etiquette
Challenges can be played within a duration of 3 days from the time they were issued. If they are not accepted within 3 days, they expire. While they have not been accepted, they can be rejected or cancelled any time. Once they have been accepted, they must be played. A player who misses playing an accepted challenge has technically lost it, and a player who lost a challenge may not be able to proceed to the next stage. It is bad manner to accept and play a challenge shortly before the time of expiry because this would be putting pressure on the other player. This is a friendly event! Better reject the challenge and send it back. The same situation from the other side: When you have sent a challenge that remains unaccepted for a while, and if you think you may not be able to play it in the remaining time, you are urgently recommended to cancel the challenge! You may resend it immediately or later or wait for it to be sent to you. It is often a good idea to contact the other player by PN and make an agreement about when to play. When you get a challenge from a friend, it will be auto-accepted! This function helps people to play faster during the KO stage but please make sure that you don't run in trouble from auto-acceptance, play friends first.

The application procedure differs from before: Since you got frank0's "+", you have already been registered as a player. In case of any conflict of information, the official source of information for this event is not this info box but post #1 of the forum you are now reading.

Whenever you're in trouble during the event, please contact the forum. There will be help.
