Beat the bots and win an NABC title! – March 9-11
There’s no need to get out of your PJs when you play in the NABC Robot Individual, a three-day stratified online event hosted on Bridge Base Online (BBO) where you can win gold and red masterpoints – even an NABC title!
Each day, you’ll play 24 boards with a bot as your partner, and two other bots as your opponents. You can choose your own start time, but you must finish by midnight Eastern time. Best of all, the event is stratified, so you will be competing at your skill level.
So, join us to play in a nationally rated event from the comfort of your own home!

Remember, the bots on BBO use a custom 2/1 system, so check out the system notes. The bot’s understanding of what a bid means can be seen by hovering over the highlighted bid during the auction. (If the bid is not highlighted, it means the bots have no special understanding or conventional definition.
