Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Undo or No undo ?
It's client side code, so theoretically anyone can hack it with a Firefox/Chrome add-on make it do whatever you like (ala BBOalert). But just turn off "pictures of cards" and "Confirm Bids and Plays" and be happy.

Ron, it's quite possible to pull the wrong physical card as well. For important events players on BBO should set 'Confirm Bids and Plays', and take the same care they would take to ensure that the card in hand is the card intended.
Undo or No undo ?
Turn off the "Pictures of Cards" option, and cards will be displayed like a newspaper hand diagram.
Jay Whipple, the ACBL, BBO, and clubs everywhere have joined together to set up real Black Point Club games online.
Happy to support my local clubs if a game could be near at my regular local game time: 7PM Pacific Time.
An update: ACBL, BBO, and the clubs
Sorry Jim, which "we" are you referring to? I'm with you about MPs. I always tell people I need six Uranium points to make Grand Poobah.
An update: ACBL, BBO, and the clubs
Only because almost all the bridge worth playing wherever I've had been sanctioned by the ACBL?
An update: ACBL, BBO, and the clubs
True, but it is in Central time, so the latest game is 6:30PM. Not friendly for people with day jobs.
An update: ACBL, BBO, and the clubs
LOL. Only four of the five largest metropolitan areas in the US: Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Houston. If you combined San Francisco with San Jose, it would five out of six.
An update: ACBL, BBO, and the clubs
Great, now they've added a 7:30PM Eastern Time game. Still useless for people in Pacific or Mountain time with day jobs, and not all that great for people in Central time. Why can't we have a game at 10:30PM Eastern time?
Attitude to System Regulations
The ACBL can either cater to bright young players looking for an intellectual challenge or old folks looking for a pastime. The ACBL decided on the latter in the 1980's when they proliferated senior events that excluded only the youngest 10% of their membership.
