Using a BWS file to create a tournament:
A BWS file is one of several file formats used by a number of federations systems to save a tournaments details when you have created a tournament to play.
Often the software used by a federation unfortunately is the only way you can create a tournament that can be accepted by a federation and therefore we have made it easy as part of the Bridge+More solution to handle BWS files (as well as other formats) as the basis for tournament creation and handling.
A tournament flow to comply with a particular system specified by a federations often looks as follows:
Step 1 – create the BWS file on the system specified by the federation
Step 2 – read the BWS file into the Bridge+More solution – (and) or the other devices being used (“and” as the Bridge+More solution can handle multiple different devices at the same time).
Step 3 – play and manage the game on the Bridge+More solution – (and) or the devices being used
Step 4 – Save the BWS file by the Bridge+More solution – (and) or the devices being used
Step 5 – Read (import) the BWS file on the system specified by the federation
Player details, results and corrections are also written into the BWS file – meaning changes made after step 5 have to be done on the Bridge+More solution and step 4 and step 5 must be repeated.
