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 […]

As I sat there last night, after perhaps the worst session myself and Ian have ever played, I remembered the following quote from a dim, distant past. ” I AM NOT AN EARLY BIRD OR A NIGHT OWL. I AM SOME SORT OF PERMANENTLY EXHAUSTED PIGEON” I wanted to just laugh at some of the […]

Club Championship 14 Oct 2017

I did not have a good day today! I was guilty of some pretty poor bridge, put it down to whatever excuse one might think of, including misinterpreting my partner’s 3C Bergen response to my 1S opening as a club bid! Say no more! Then there was the little problem of me producing an Ace […]

Wow! There were some hairy, scary, difficult to bid hands today. Just look at board 9. East has seven clubs and no hearts. West has no clubs and 8 Hearts! Look at board 4! You can make 6 Hearts, 6 Spades and 6NT. But, if you believe the Dealmaster Pro program, then 6H is makeable, […]

Nine tables today. We had a visit from Robert Stevens, which was really nice. He played with Cathy and says he’ll probably play next week as well. We asked him about what happened at the Bermuda Bowl and he said ” Don’t ask!” It’s really tough at the top, where no prisoners are taken. But […]

We had a somewhat small crowd tonight, with 4 and a half tables, but the bridge was great. There was some really strange distribution, just look at board number 19 for example. We played in 5C, going off, but could have made it! Oh well, sometimes the grey matter just slows down a little and […]

What a good day, what a pleasant day, with visitors streaming in the door. Nine full tables, good bridge and some new acquaintances. Well done indeed to Bridie and Paul for an excellent 72%, followed by Ian and Roy second and the visiting pair of John Calvert and Margaret Leatherbarrow a close third. The visitors […]

We had 4 and a half tables tonight, with several of our regulars missing for reasons unknown. Pity, because there were some very interesting hands, a slam or two, some doubled and made, some doubled and not made and all of that and some! The top pair tonight was Ros and Cathy, followed by Ian […]
