Bridge Results 29 Nov 2018

The 29th November. Really, December tomorrow! Christmas just 25 days away! The enormity of it, the swift passing of time, a year flitting away in a blur of weeks and months, seamlessly yet real. But, there are still a few weeks of bridge until the year end close down, so let’s enjoy these first and […]

Bridge Results 27 Nov 2018

Five and a half tables, sit out at table 1, six table Howell. Then the fun began, with some beautiful, interesting hands.When you open the attachment for last night’s hands, just look at, for instance, board 7, which contains latent drama, with potential for 5H or 5S, depending on where you sit!

Good evening to you all from Country View, where we’ve just had “sound and fury, signifying nothing” from the Highveld weather.( Apologies to Macbeth).
