Bridge Base Online Help

Just the highlights

Welcome to Bridge Base Online (BBO), bridge players. Here you can find all things bridge related. You can play according to your level, or play up with higher level partners and opponents. You can fine tune your bidding with your favorite partner by using our "Partnership Bidding" option at any table. You can practice with our bridge-playing GIB robots - a good way to learn a 2/1 system. Pull up a chair in our Main Bridge Club or Relaxed Bridge Club and play with old friends or friends yet to be.

Are you interested in ACBL Masterpoints? Join our ACBL sanctioned tournaments - there's a game starting every hour from Midnight until the last one at 11pm, every day. Like the Robots? Earn masterpoints by playing in our frequent Robot games where you can win BBO and ACBL Masterpoints. No partner? No problem. All tournaments have a partnership desk open before every game.

This international bridge site welcomes players from the four corners of the world. Play in our ABA, BBO Nordic, EBU, AEB, Sky Club, BBO Land, BBO Turkiye, Galaxy Club, BBO Italia and ILACY tournaments and win BBO points. The number you see on a player's profile corresponds to the numbers on a deck of cards. Watch that number go up as the players win more BBO points.

Here on BBO you can find yourself at a table with an absolute beginner all the way up to the highest level of World Class players. These high level players are the ones with a 'star' by their name -- many of them are available for private lessons and coaching.

The people with the 'yellow' names either work here on BBO or are volunteers who are here to help those new to BBO. So look around, click the buttons, see what's available, ask questions when you need to, and have fun playing bridge!

We're glad you're here.
