BBO Extractor

What is BBO Extractor

The term "BBO Extractor" is used for two software components.

  1. One is the Chrome extension "BBO Extractor", which extracts the results and hand records from a BBO matchpointed pairs and cross imp pairs tournament. It stores the result as a csv file and PBN file in the browser's Downloads folder. Full ranking, scorecard, and traveller details are extracted as well as BBO bid and play data.

  2. A web app BBOtoXML is the second software component which is then used to convert the csv file into an xml file suitable for upload to EBU/UMS, EBUscore and Bridgewebs as well as other bridge result websites. Conversion from BBO usernames to real names is carried out if a names file is loaded.
