Click “Game Live”

Information on the screen:

At left you can see the main information – primarily for information and for support

Session and round breaks settings – here you also start the tournament / have cards ejected 

When you have created the tournament it looks as follows

When you want the tournament to start (get the first deck out) enter the first tick and wait 5 – 10 seconds – cards should be ejected on all Bridge+More solutions at the same time

You will have to repeat the ejection of cards manually after each round (the illustration is shown by purpose – this is not logical and not possible as board 3 can’t be ejected if there is no V in the first box)

Or simply have the cards ejected as soon as they are ready – in other words, the Tournament director/club manager handles breaks and wants the cards to come out only when he/she decides.

Regarding Session Breaks please notice the following:

If you have a selected as shown below – because the players handle breaks and round table changes – then when board 9 has been played end inserted board 10 will be ejected (first board in round 2). This might be only relevant to a low number of tables because players have to change the table or in a small private tournament.

The message “Connecting” shows an ongoing “Out of range” retry

The message “Disconnected” is shown if several “Out of range” retries did not succeed.
