When we play on-line we “Self-Alert” our bids… unlike at the table, where our partner will hear our Alerts, Announcements, and explanations, this information is available ONLY TO OUR OPPONENTS.  This removes the likelihood that Unauthorized Information has been passed between us and our partner.


Our friend, John Early of Lansdale, Pennsylvania, has put together an 11-minute video of how to perform Self-Alerts, together with some other very good habits to adopt when playing on BBO.  Please watch John’s video; it will make your on-line playing experience much better.
