On December 4, BBO will adjust these entry fees.

Instant Tournament (8 boards, BBO Points): 0.79 BB$
BBO Instant 100 (8 boards, BBO Points): 0.79 BB$
Robot Duplicate (8 boards, MP and IMP, BBO Points): 0.69 BB$
Daylong Tournament (8 boards, MP and IMP, BBO Points): 0.79 BB$
Just Declare Daylong (8 boards, MP, BBO Points): 0.79 BB$
Acol/Basic SAYC/SEF Daylong Tournaments (8 boards, MP, BBO Points): 0.79 BB$
BBO Express Pairs (4 boards, BBO Points): 0.24 BB$
Express 4 Fast Boards (4 boards, BBO Points): 0.24 BB$

The Instants and Daylongs that I play are going up from 59c to 79c.
A rise of 33% when BBO members are going through a severe cost of living crisis!
Profit, Profit, Profit seems to be BBO's only consideration - pure greed, plain and simple!
And they seem to be taking over other bridge sites and bridge related businesses, so soon they will have a monopoly and really will be able to charge anything that they want!

Well deserved price increases from BBO. They have a team of a half dozen highly paid premier programmers who do nothing but fix and improve GIB every day, and have released literally thousands, maybe tens of thousands of improvements in the past one or two years. Today, GIB is the best computer robot in the world that is decades, maybe centuries ahead of the competition. If anything, BBO should raise prices by another 50% to 100% at least and customers should be grateful to pay BBO's corporate owners.

Three years ago daylongs were 39c, and now will be 79c -a more than 100% increase. They required zero additional effort by BBO over the period. Why not have a package where for a monthly fee you can play unlimited instants, daylongs etc.?

In the meantime about 20% inflation, so say an 83% real increase.
Reflecting what added value to customer?
