We have the cards, we have have the Gold!
Monday September 21st through Sunday September 27th. Games will payout double club points, of which 25% will be GOLD! Game fee is $6.75 per player. Register your partner as normal on BBO.

Tired of Miss Clicks? Personally, I can't stand her, extremely uncooperative and anti-social. Unfortunately she has some magical powers and no matter what I do, she seems to show up at the most inopportune time.There are ways you can make it more difficult for Miss Clicks to appear during your game.

Have you turned on Confirm Bids and Confirm Cards? Both these options help avoid the unwanted and unexpected appearance of Miss Click.

To enable these features, log into BBO and click on the Account Tab to the right. Then, click Settings at the top of the colum. Then find Confirm Bids and Confirm Cards and slide the switch to the right. Once enabled, when you click on a bid (call) you will then have to click an OKAY button to confirm you clicked the correct call. When you click on a card to play, after you the click the card, the card appears raised. You can then either click the card again to play it or click on another card instead. You can also toggle these features on and off during a game. Why not give it a try?

Of course, you can include the convention name as a part of the answer, but you must also make a clear and precise description including point range or strength level if applicable.
