I'm a new player on BBO and haven't figured out how to see what convention card my opponents are playing. I see some players put info in their profile, but is there a way to see their card?

I too was wondering if you define a convention card for yourself does it alert with each bid's meaning like playing solitaire with the robots.

Click on the hamburger menu and select "NS Convention Card" pr "EW Convention Card".

No, it doesn't.

There was a feature called "Full Disclosure Convention Card" that automated explanations of every bid, but the software for creating it was only done in the Windows download version, it was never added to the browser versions.

For the solution see :
- my post : https://www.bridgeba...isclosure-tool/
- project site https://github.com/stanmaz/BBOalert
- installation with Firefox : https://addons.mozil...addon/bboalert/

BBOalert = fully automatic alerting and replaces the old "Full Disclosure" which is no longer supported by BBO

I find the BBO convention card editor inefficient. My solution is :
- edit your own convention card using a standard form : ACBL or WBF
- make a PDF
- save it in Google Drive
- share it by using public anonymous link. Example : my CC https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing
- every time a new opponent appears, paste the link into BBO chat and send this to the opponents or to the table. BBOalert enables you to define keyboard shortcuts (abbreviations and Alt key shortcuts) to do it efficiently

If you need any personalized assistance : stanmaz.git@gmail.com

On my iPad I cannot view a link without closing BBO. The BBO editor might not be great, but perhaps you will try to remember that the card is for your opponents’ benefit and not your convenience.
