It is disappointing to learn that Intermediate players are being dissuaded from entering the new League because it is being played on Real Bridge.
Real Bridge has many advantages over other online Bridge sites. Since it features live audio – visual contact with the other players, it is the closest online site yet to actual face-to-face play. It is the only online system which enables leagues to be played on the same basis as face to face – all teams playing simultaneously on the same night using the same boards.
A key advantage of playing this way is that the risk of unethical play taking place is virtually eliminated. This makes it possible to award prizes with no reservations over the veracity of the results.
It is true that playing on Real Bridge requires a good internet connection. However in certain circumstances, players with connection difficulties can ease any problems by simply turning off their camera.
