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.

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

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.

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
