There are some online help sessions for playing on BBO. For the schedule and links to the zoom sessions, please click here.
Changes in Stratification of virtual games
          Pairs are now stratified by average masterpoints rather than the masterpoints of the person with the higher number. Also, when the strats are not equal, strat C will have the largest number of pairs instead of strat A.
