Hi

Occasionally I have considered playing one of the Pairs tourneys that allows you to join with a Bot (I know that sounds very sad. I have only considered it)
However I am concerned about alerting requirements, as in the details for the tourneys
If you play with a Bot are all your bids automatically described/alerted as per GiB descriptions


I am also somewhat concerned what happens if you accidentally play too slow and are replaced by another Bot

Yes, when you play with BBO Robot all your bids are automatically described and alerted as per the descriptions..

You also get to see the description of a call before you make it, which is useful if you are uncertain of the system (but is also a violation of the laws of bridge).
Unfortunately for both you and opponents, the description is often inaccurate (see current thread about cuebid as an example) or just the name of a convention (which is little use if you do not know it well).
