No time to travel to the NABC? No problem!

Seize your chance to win an NABC title from the comfort of your own home. The NABC Robot Individual—previously known as the NABC Online Individualis a stratified online event (Unlimited/2000/500) hosted by BBO.

Don’t think you can commit to a three-day event
with a rigid schedule? We’ve got you covered.

Plan your play for a time that works best for you. Each day’s 24 boards must be completed within 12 hours of your start time or prior to 11:59 p.m. Eastern, whichever comes first. Just don’t forget to play all three days.

Register now for the fall event (November 19-21) to pay a discounted early-bird fee of $40 (until Nov. 16).

Some stats from previous tournaments:

  • Summer 2018 – A Non-Life Master placed first on the second day of this event, with 72.60%. He took 24 points home (eight golds!)
  • Spring 2018 – The overall winner was a Strat B player with only 1300 masterpoints. You don’t have to be a pro!

Playing the Robots

  • The robots used are GIB robots.
  • The robots play a modified 2/1 system.
  • Check the robot system notes. The robots sometimes deviate from notes if simulations lead them to other conclusions.
  • The robot’s understanding of what a bid means can be seen by hovering over the highlighted bid. If the bid is not highlighted, it means the robots have no special understanding or conventional definition for that particular bid.
  • If you have any technical issue during the game please contact support@bridgebase.com

I really liked this challenge and would play it again, time permitting. Each board is available for replay, and you can compare your actions to the bids and plays of other players, providing a great tool for analysis and improvement.
