Our little ladies’ bar is becoming a little cosier, with improved lighting, thanks to positive action from the club management. We’ll also try to move some of the spare tables, which will make a difference and create some additional space.
Congratulations to Deirdre and Pat for a great 70%, which was a full 11% more than the runners up, Bridie and Paul, with yours truly and Priscilla in third place. There were some great hands, some really difficult hands to bid and there seemed to be a good spread between N/S and E/W, in terms of makeable contracts.
Attached are today’s hand records, but please note that hands 7 and 11 were put into the incorrect pockets. Please ignore them, therefore. The others are all correct. Our apologies for this.
Did you hear about the Elvis Presley coup? It’s when your left hand opponent leads from A-Q around to your K-x; The King is no longer dead!
Definition of a Splinter Bid; The only known way to become declarer with a singleton trump in each hand.
Forgive me, I just had to share these two with you.
Watch this space.
