• Welcome

Welcome to the home page of the Mohanlal Bhartia Memorial Online Bridge Championships 2021 being organised by India Glycol from Saturday 20th March to Sunday 28th March 2021.

• Alert Guidelines for Players on Online Screens

Points to note about Alerts & Explanations for Mohanlal Bhartia Memorial Online Bridge Championships 2021 on RealBridge (Screens in use):

An Artificial Call has to be ALERTED & EXPLAINED in writing by the player himself AT THE TIME OF MAKING THE CALL. Later explanations are also possible, but it's advisable to provide complete explanation at the time of making the Call.

The space for the Written Explanation is towards the bottom of the Bidding Box at the time of making the Call. Delayed explanations may cause MI situations when the opponents make a Call before the explanation is provided. The other side would be entitled to redressal of damage, if any, due to MI arising from a delayed explanation. Alerts of Calls are visible to both opponents, but not visible to Partner. One needs to click on the Alerted Call to get the Written Explanation, if any.

Players should also verbally Alert and Explain to their screen-mates the meanings of ONLY their own Artificial Calls. During the Auction and Play, a Player can always ask for and provide Explanations to one's screen-mate, BUT only about the screen-mates’ CALLS. For information about the other opponent’s Calls, s/he has to ask the other opponent in written chat.

General information like Bidding system, Conventions employed, Leads, carding etc MUST be obtained from one’s own screen-mate.

A Player CANNOT ask both opponents about the same Call.

Refrain from writing on Table Chat during Auction & Play as the Chat is visible to the full table including the other side of the Screen. The only time you MUST use table chat is when you want an UNDO in a Pass-out and lead situation.
