Website Displays

 

With the Bridgemate Scoring System, exciting website displays are possible.  In addition to the scores and match points from ACBLscore, the complete history of each board is available for review.

There are various options for website displays:

Bridge-specific websites that create the displays for you.

There are Bridge-specific websites that will automatically create hand-record displays from the ACBLscore game file (or report) and the Bridgemate results (.bws) file.  With pre-dealt boards – where there are hand records – the displays are even more meaningful.

Third-party software that creates a display file that can be uploaded to your own website.
  • BridgeComposer
  • ACBLmerge
Self-written software.

Bridge-specific websites

BridgeWebs.com - www.bridgewebs.com
Bridge-Club.org - www.bridge-club.org
Pianola.net - www.pianola.net

Bridgemate.US has been working with website developers that provide Bridge-specific sites which users can easily control.  The main advantage these website providers offer is that with the Bridgemate System you can now display complete data on each game.  In addition to the ACBLscore "results" info, you can display the Contract, Declarer and actual result - as well as the lead (if desired).  With hand records, even more detail is available.

These developers are most happy to provide trial service.  Please look at the "test" sites - www.waynesboro.bridge-club.org, www.bridgewebs.com/waynesboro or site.pianola.net/wintergreen-bridge

Bridgewebs.com                            Bridge-Club.org                                      Pianola.net

                       
Both Bridgewebs and Bridge-Club.org list clubs using their service.

BridgeResults

BridgeResults.net
Evolving from the ACBLmerge and as implemented at La Jolla Bridge, BridgeResults now offers web hosting for bridge clubs.  It is also used to post tournament results in several Western Districts.

ACBL Game Results

ACBL Game Results   
ACBL's Sanctioned Club Game Results online program is a free service from ACBLscore for viewing on the ACBL web site.  Register for this service at ACBL.org/club-results/registration    ACBL's User Manual for their website service is available at CompleteInstructionManual

Clubs that already have an existing website may "link" to the ACBL service to display the more detailed results.  Clubs without a website will instruct players to go to acbl.org/clubresults

Third-party software

BridgeComposer

BridgeComposer is shareware that may be used to create Results web pages - using data from ACBLscore and the "results" (.bws) file that is shared by Bridgemate Control Software and ACBLscore during a game.  Optionally, hand records may be included.  For clubs using their Bridgemates II to enter hand records, BridgeComposer will load the hand records directly from the .bws file.  For more information visit the BridgeComposer website www.bridgecomposer.com

These are some Bridge Clubs using the Bridgemate Scoring System and BridgeComposer for their website displays:

Naples Bridge Center, Naples FL
Emerald Bridge Club, Springfield OR
The Bridge Spot, Woburn MA
Little Rock DBC, Little Rock AR

ACBLmerge
ACBLmerge is a free (open source) program developed to merge hand records, double dummy results, and electronic scoring data with ACBLscore output, creating HTML output for websites.  For more information visit lajollabridge.com

The Esplanade Bridge Center uses ACBLmerge.  Their website links to Bridge Results to display their Results and Calendar.

Self-written software

Many clubs have written their own software to create displays for their websites.  A few examples are:

The Peoria Bridge Studio
Indianapolis Bridge
Essex Bridge Center
Halifax Bridge Studio
