There were no hands today with two Aces of the same suit, thank goodness, and the computer program behaved itself and all is well.
The two gentlemen from Pretoria did it again, winning by some 6% from Helen and Barbara and Pat and Deirdre in third. There was a very good turnout with 10 full tables and the new roller doors were open, allowing a slight summer breeze to waft through the hall, making for a most pleasant afternoon of bridge. Shakespeare was actually a bridge player, but his version of the story was called The Two Gentlemen of Verona. What?
” Where’s the hand you were holding during the auction?” Heard when dummy hit the table!
And then there was the guy who lead 8 from a 9,8 doubleton because his teacher told him “eight ever, nine never”
OK, that’s it for now, see you lot next week.
