A. The hand is under "Hand Records"
You recently played a hand on BBO (or watched one being played) and now you want to get that deal and see it in aaBridge. Go to:
and if needed, login to BBO.
Here the BBO username entered is that of Bridge Teacher Hondo717.
Click the Get hands button (not shown)
You will now see a table of played hands, like the example below.
Click on the Lin link
for the hand you want.
The left image shows Chrome.
Windows users can click on the file name.
In the now opened folder you can Drag and Drop the file you want on to any open aaBridge window.
or Drag & Drop the lin link on to aaBridgeAlso with many Browsers (but not IE) you can Grab the lin link and Drag and Drop it on to any open aaBridge window.
aaBridge will then download that lin file and show it to you.
B. The hand is still in "My Results"
You are playing or watching on BBO and the hand finishes and you can see the deal in the My Results area (bottom right).
Here is how to get that hand quickly into aaBridge.
1. click the Options button
2. hover over Export deal
3. click on Handviewer link
Select the full line of the URL text (shown in progress here).
Do Ctrl-C or use your mouse button (menu) to do a Copy in the normal way.
Do a Mouse Right Click.
You can think of this right click as an aaBridge Quick Paste.
That deal will now open.
On some laptops a light "two finger tap" gesture will do a "Right Click".
under File there is a Paste option
Note You can save the link, in a text file, for later use. Later you can use a more normal Drag & Drop to drop that text into aaBridge.
C. You have saved the Hand on BBOYou already have the hand on BBO either by uploading it as lin file or by using the BBO hand editor to make it or by saving it directly to BBO from "My Results" as in
My BBO > Hands and Results
click the (blue) "Show" button for the BBO folder that holds the deal you want to get into aaBridge.
Select the actual deal from the deals in that folder and then Click the Options button. Now you can follow the instructions given in section B. above.
