Can someone tell or direct me to an explanations of the symbols that show in the players names? Some people have a crown, some have a star, others have a number. What do these mean?

Thanks.

A crown means they are the host of the table.

A star means they have represented their nation in international competition.

A number shows how many master points they have won on BBO.

Lower numbers mean a few BBO points. An 8=300 MPs. A 9=500 MPs.

10= 1,000 MPs and higher numbers show 1,000 more(11=2,000 MPs)

Stars mean that the players have achieved significant success at a national or international level.

spotlight7 and hrothgar, thank you so much for your replies. What started as curiosity turned into obsession, and after spending about an hour looking in BBO, I posted here. Sanity restored, thanks again.

You might also like to know that 'yellows'(people that work for BBO)

nicknames appear with a yellow background. You can ask them and

they will be willing to help you.

New to this forum and bbo. Just started playing Instant Tournaments. Earned 1.61 points. What total is needed for the first symbol. (Looks like it is a "2"). When will the symbol appear?

Welcome to the forums. This is the only place I post on social media, because of the good standards of politeness amongst the posters.
