Overview

The screen is devided into left and right side.

Events List (left side)

When you go to Tournaments (Heart) tab for the first time you get a list of the currently available tournaments. You can sort the events 'By Year' or 'By Event'.

Right hand side

The right hand side becomes active once you choose a tournament event.

Let's look at 2013 Bermuda Bowl.

Now that you have selected '2013 Bermuda Bowl', Shark lists the stages of the event with a schema of the later rounds.

Notes: You can go back to the list of tournaments from the 'Events' button.

Each stage has a number of sessions. Each session has number of boards, ususally in the 15-16 range.

Lets have a look at the Semi Final A (Monaco vs USA 1). Sharks has all 96 boards divided into 6 sessions (segments) of 16 boards each.

Session Details (right hand side)

As soon as you select a session on the left, on the right hand side you can see who played for each team in the Open and Closed rooms. We will not show you the board results for the boards you have not played yet. Those of you, that would rather see how each board was played before trying it, can use 'Show All Results'.

Playing a board

Just touch on the line of a board you would like to play. 'Next Deal' from the Bridge Table will move you to the next board.

So now that we have played and scored 4 boards you can compare your results with the competing pairs.

Note: To get a complete board review with auction and play 'Touch and Hold" on a board line.

Board Review

"Touch and Hold" on a board line to get a complete review. Board review is also available from the Score screen of the Bridge Table.

Board review gives you side by side complete comparison of your play and that of Open or Closed table, as well as comparison between Open and Closed table.
