Wed, 13-May-2020 IAC Membership and BBO Issues
Do you want to apply for IAC membership? Please click the WELCOME at the top middle of this page (and choose REGISTER from the drop down list). We request that you complete all the fields -- your bbo nick_name, actual name, email address, time zone, DST region. If you are new to BBO and a current member in good standing recommends you, IAC will wave the other acceptance requirements (posted in IAC COC page).
Once you are accepted, do go register at IAC forums as well :

Most lessons in IAC will use voice feature. To be able hear, make sure you are logged into bbo with its latest V3 version:, thru browser (apps do not transmit it).
Watch useful videos how to get around V3, find IAC room, join tournaments etc at: IAC Youtube Channel

We are fast nearing the point where we must give up BBO Version 2. Currently, if you log in with the old version (V2), you will see no players (logged in with V3) who have left the main area to play in "Casual", and of course no tables on that server either. So unless you are playing with friends who are all using V2, you are seriously limiting the number of players you will interact with by continuing to use the older version. The only way for players on the old version to see players who log into V3, is if the "new version" players stay in the main area (that is don't leave by clicking on "casual").

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.
