Weekly five exciting hands on your mobile phone or tablet
What is the ABC – ACBL Bidding Contest?
The ABC is an initiative of the American Contract Bridge League, and is organized by bid72, the app on bridge bidding,
You bid with your own chosen partner and your preferred system, using the app bid72,
Every week on Monday five hands will appear automatically in the app on your (and your partner’s) phone or tablet.
You bid these hands with your partner, turn by turn. You have until Sunday midnight to finish the bidding. For every final contract you will receive points for the weekly and monthly ranking.
Every Monday you will receive an e-mail with an overview of all the hands, your own bidding sequences, your chat texts on the hand, the score table of the hand and the updated monthly ranking. In the app you will find a new set of five hands.
You can join anytime. The first time you join, you will compete in the NEW group. After the first month, you will be placed in one of the groups (A, B, C …) with monthly promotion/relegation.
Make sure you bid at least fifteen hands in a month, otherwise your month score won’t count.
You can always stop or pause bidding and rejoin later.
What does it cost?
The ACBL Bidding Contest is free for members of the ACBL.
Every new player will also receive a three-week free trial period, giving access to all other functionality of the bidding app. With this access you can bid an unlimited number of hands. When the three weeks are over, access to the app will be limited to the five weekly hands of the bidding contest only.
So if you only want to bid the five hands of the ACBL Bidding Contest and nothing else, just wait for the new hands every Monday and ignore the e-mail offer that we will send you. The offer in the e-mail will explain that you can subscribe to the unlimited version of the app for $ 3.49 monthly or $ 28.99 yearly.
