The ACBL and BBO require players to use a Convention Card online at BBO.
You must create a Convention Card with Partner and assign it to your accounts.
Below you will find a video link that walks you through the Convention Card process.
You will also find a button for the PDF document with pictures that walks through the process.
You will also find a button for the PDF of what a Convention Card looks like in the brick-and-mortar world.
This is helpful as a reference.
Some general guidelines:
1. The video is broken down in 3 parts. You can watch from the beginning all the way through (about an hour),
or you can jump to page 2 of Convention card specifically.
EVERYONE needs to understand the final part of the video: Assigning Convention Cards.
You can jump just to Part 3.
2. The third part of the video and PDF document are CRUCIAL.
a. Only ONE of you in a partnership creates the Convention card.
Really. Only ONE of you.
b. Then you assign it to a partner (or multiple partners).
The complete Convention Card will then be copied into Partner's BBO account.
It will activate every time you play with that Partner on BBO.
