I am so new to the game, but I love playing. What advice do you have for me. Especially bidding. I get kicked off quite a bit.

Try reading the GIB (solitaire robot) help and learn the basic bidding system.

BBO has free competitions every day where you play with the robots. These are good for practice and if you hover over a bid you are considering, they telll you what it would mean. If at all possible I'd recommend lessons with a teacher. And depending where you live, perhaps try to use the methods that are popular in your home country.

Either a bookstore or a library should have at least one book on basic bidding based on the methods normal to your area of the world - for example, Acol north of France Posted Image and Standard American in the U.S.A.

I would then look for novice instruction, not beginner. It won't be long before you'll be much more confident.

I work with adults who are new to bridge and would be glad to have a virtual chat with you and get a better understanding as to what you understand at this point in your bridge knowledge.

Another really simple option is to join BIL (a separate group for Beginners and Intermediate bridge players) and request a Bridge Mentor. Best thing I ever did when I discovered BBO and wanted to improve my bridge.
