time

TIME

For the TDs everything can be seen with an accuracy to seconds: no debate about Break In Tempo, no debate about slow play.  

silence 1

SILENCE

Declarers do not name the cards from the dummy; the door of the screen is always closed; players cannot chat across.​ 

archive 1

ARCHIVE

Archive of all the tournaments played on LoveBridge, where players can access the result and  play of each board, including the biddings and plays of other tables.

broadcast 1

BROADCAST

At LoveBridge Vugraph spectators can follow all the tables playing at a tournament. Since there is no human interface (operator), every single detail of the play is correctly recorded. 

stats 1

STATISTICS

Statistics of bidding and play. Players can receive feedback on their performance via the LoveBridge statistics page. Based on the system data players can measure their bidding, declarer play, and defense compared to other players and pairs playing at the same tournament.

no mistake 1

NO TECHNICAL MISTAKES

No technical mistakes disturbing the flow of the play (such as revokes, bad seating, insufficient bids, opening lead from the wrong side…). 

results 1

RESULTS

Results and plays of each finished boards can be reviewed during the play or between boards, tables, and rounds. The tournament organizer has the right to decide that the results of other tables can also be seen or not.

no mistake 1

NO HUMAN ERRORS

Since everything is automated, there is no need for a human interface during broadcasting, therefore there are no errors. Spectators can be sure that what they see is exactly what is happening at the tables​.

BROADCAST

Viewers have more insight to the forming of the result: they can follow the play at every table, and see every card played during the whole tournament. Comments at a table and voice commentary are also possible to make the viewer experience even better. (Broadcast can be delayed for safety reasons upon request.)

built in scoring

BUILT-IN SCORING SYSTEM

No need for additional scoring devices 

no mistake 1

NO TECHNICAL ERRORS

Organizers and directors never have to deal with revokes, bad seating, insufficient bids, opening lead from the wrong side and similar mistakes again. 

waste reduction 1

NO PAPER WASTE

Every board and deal is visible on the tablets and on the vugraph site, there is no need to print the deals, results and personal scores. 

nothing else needed 1

NOTHING ELSE NEEDED

Organizers don’t have to prepare the deals and move the boards, never have to replace the cards and bidding boxes and take care of every tool necessary for the players. They just have to set the system up, and it can replace countless tools that were necessary to organize bridge tournaments before.
