Home Page
The entry point for Gainesville’s web site contains the following principal elements:
Menu Buttons – on the left side of the screen, there is a vertical row of menu buttons guiding the
user to other places on the web site. This document will describe the functions behind each one of
these buttons. The buttons look like this:
News Items – in the center and right side of the screen are news items. These items will be current
and will change frequently. When a news item is replaced on the home page, it will be moved for a time
to the News Page.
Results – a link to the results of the two most current games will be on the home page. It looks like
this:
Place your cursor on the date in the box and left mouse click to go to the Results Page for that
date.
Rank Changes – Members who have advanced in rank in the previous month will be listed here. A
running summary of the current year’s rank changes can be found by clicking on 2013 Rank Changes.
Tool Bar - the tool bar is located directly above the Menu Buttons and looks like this:
The functions behind each of these icons will be described later in this document.
News Page
The News Page contains older news items that have been rolled off the Home Page. These will be kept
for a time before being deleted permanently.
Gainesville Bridge Club
Where and When
After clicking on the Menu Button for the Gainesville Bridge Club, the display on the screen is the ‘When
and Where’:
This is informational and for visitors to our club. In addition, there are two more menu buttons under
the general Gainesville Bridge Club button:
Gatorbridge Club
If you click on Gatorbridge Club, you will see the ‘Where and When’ for that:
Town Club
If you click on the Town Club menu button, you will see the ‘Where and When’ for that:
Best Behavior
This is an information page summarizing the ACBL player behavior standards during an ACBL sanctioned
game. It would be beneficial for all to review the standards outlined on this page.
Find a Partner
This feature has not been activated as yet. Starting in January, 2014, the calendar for all three
Gainesville Clubs will be enabled. At that time, online partner requests for a given game can be posted
here as well as under the Membership option.
Calendar
The calendar option has not been enabled as yet. It will be implemented in January, 2014.
Results
This will be the most visited part of our website. From this menu option, you will be able to look up
most of the results that have been posted. In the future, some results will either be archived or deleted.
Results Calendar
The results are presented on a number of pages. When you first click on results, you will see a screen
like this:
NB: When you see the icon :
it means that the game on that date has the full range of analysis available,
including hand records, makeable contracts, contracts, tricks made, scores and ranking. If the
icon is not there, you will only be shown the rankings and scores.
Click on any game and you will see a screen like this:
Ranking
This is an overview of results in rank sequence.
Scorecards
This is a combination page showing a list of the players, rank, scores, hand records, contracts and tricks
for all the boards. You can analyze your game using this page. Click on Scorecards from the Menu Bar at
the top of the page:
You will then see a screen like this:
In the left column, the pairs are listed by rank, pair number, names of the players and the direction in
which they played. The middle column, in this example, shows all the boards played by Joyce and Mary
Ann, their opponents’ pair number, names, contract, tricks made, score and points.
On the right hand side of the page, there are three boxes. Starting from the top, you see the number of
boards played in the game:
Under that you see the hand record with points held in each hand and makeable contracts:
The number of the board is in the center of the display.
Under that, you see a list of all the pairs who played that board, the contract, who was declarer, how
many tricks were won, the score and the points:
Using this feature, you can go through each board by clicking on a board number. To ease your analysis,
you can click on your pair number in the list on the left and that pair will be highlighted in the lower
right hand box.
Finally, if there is more than one section playing on that date, you select the section from the top menu
bar. In this example, there are two sections: Section A and Section F.
Calendar Month
If you click on the button labeled ‘Calendar Month’ under the Results menu button, you will see a
variant display of recorded games:
The navigation from this page is the same as documented above.
Personal Analysis
The final menu button under Results is Personal Analysis. When you click on that, you will see a screen
like this:
If you want to view a summary of the games you played in, your score and masterpoints earned, click on
your name and you will see a display like this:
Competitions
Pairs
By clicking on this menu button, you will see the top 30 scores from recorded games. The drawback to
this option is that many of our members play with different partners. The results are therefore
somewhat mixed. If our members played with the same partner all the time, the results would be more
meaningful. by clicking on the Pairs option, you will see something like this:
Individual
By clicking on the Individual option, you will see something like this:
2013 Rank Changes
This Menu option is a running list of our members who have advanced in rank through the year. In
coming years, the annual rank changes will be included on the News Page. The Home Page will list only
the current year.
When you click on this option, you will see something like this:

director or club president know if you would like to see other links included on this page. When you
click on the Useful Links option, you will see this:
