Sun, 19-May-2019 OliverC Sessions on OCP Super-Precision
Because of too many conflicting commitments in June, Oliver will be starting his course on OCP Super-Precision at 8pm UTC (9pm UK, 4pm EDT) on Saturday 6th July in IAC. This is an exciting system that is challenging but also great fun to use and which can take your bidding to a whole new level. There is a dedicated Website to support the system and a Discussion Forum to support those using it. OCP even has its own YouTube Channel with videos of lessons.

Interested? Come along on 6th July... The times of the lessons are slightly variable on a 5-week cycle (check the IAC Diary and keep an eye open for announcements)
Wed, 01-May-2019 Pause in

Playing Level & Options
Timezone & Daylight Saving Settings
Time Zone: This Site shows times in your local time. Select your Time Zone from the list.
Daylight Saving: If you observe Daylight Saving, select your Region from the list.


Help on "Using the Site"
This is the front page of the IAC Site.

The Menu down the left-hand side will help you to navigate to other parts of the site. The front page displays an introduction, Latest News items and the Teaching / Tourney Schedule for the current week.

If you see \"Guest User\" in the top right-hand corner, that means you need to register on the site in order to be able to take full advantage of what it offers. Just click on Register underneath, provide your details. You need to be registered and logged on to use certain parts of the time.

Changing Time Settings
The way this site works, times should be displayed to you in your own local time. For this to work, we need to know your Time Zone and Daylight Savings settings. Times are stored on the site in GMT/UTC and if you do not specify these settings, that is what you will see. For times to be displayed in your local time, you also need to be registered on the site and logged into the Site.

BabelFish Yahoo Babelfish is an automatic translation facility which will translate this Site into a number of different languages. Please be aware, however, that Bridge has a fairly technical and non-standard vocabulary so some of the translation might seem a little weird. Also, since the whole of the page is translated (ie: including some of the programming code), some of the pages will not display properly and/or may not function properly if viewed in anything other than English.
