To access this option, click the down arrow next to Action on the horizontal Tournament Management bar and select Chat -> Tournament. A small box pops up where tournament announcments can be typed, or pasted, and then sent to the tournament. This box remains open as long as you wish to make announcements to the tournament. It will not interfere, other than blocking a portion of the screen, and you can still use the Chat portion of the Bridge Base Online (BBO) window for chatting to tables or individual players.
You can also chat to the tournament using the Chat portion on the bottom left hand side of the screen, by clicking ->Tournament to specify the chat destination. You then type or paste something prepared ahead of time in the chat bar, and click the chat button to the right of the message.
