Pro - Am Evening on February 21st

On Tuesday February 21st we held a Pro - Am evening aimed at introducing potential new members to the club. The 'Pros' were the regular club members and the 'Ams' came from the classes and play sessions hosted by Graham Arnold at the Oaks Cafe on Monday and Wednesday mornings.

If you are looking for a bridge club

We meet twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Community Centre, Prince Rupert Drive, Buckingham Park, Aylesbury.

Sessions start at 7.25 (for 7.30) and finish around 10.30.

Our aim is to provide Duplicate bridge with an emphasis on enjoyment in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

We are affiliated to the EBU and use pre-dealt boards and BridgeMate scoring which means hand records and results are usually available on the night before players leave.
In addition to the normal club sessions we run quarterly social events (often on a Sunday afternoon) where, in addition to the bridge, a sumptuous tea provided.
Visitors are welcome to come and play at normal club sessions and the social events, although there are some restrictions on Simultaneous Pairs evenings.
We are delighted to welcome new players and do our very best to provide a host to partner visiting individuals - SEE LEFT HAND SIDE BOX.

Charity Tea 2017
Charity Tea 2017

The Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity was recognised as a worthy recipient of the funds raised at our recent annual Charity tea. Last week we were pleased to welcome Emma Carroll, the community fundraiser for Florence Nightingale, and to present a cheque to the charity for £1,000. Emma outlined the many aspects of their work which involves supporting the families, children  and adults with life limiting illnesses. Currently the charity has to raise over £500,000 per annum in order to sustain its work so clearly all donations are gratefully received.

Doing things in the right order

North declared 3NT and East found the lead of J rather than the more normal 4th best spade. Declarer North can identify two things that have to be done - knocking out the A and getting the clubs going by finessing. When you have a choice between losing a sure trick and a finesse it is often correct to lose the sure trick first. Win the first diamond and play a heart towards the KQ to knock out the ace. They will return a diamond but this time you should duck one round. A third diamond will follow which you have to win and now take the club finesse by starting with ♣ 10. When that holds you are in the correct hand to take finesse again. If you started with the ♣ 6 and finessed the ♣ J you would have to reenter hand with the J to do the fineese again. On a different hand you may not have the luxury of an entry in another suit.

If you do the club finesse first and it loses, a diamond will take out your last stop so when you finally play the hearts the hand with the A might also have diamond winners. As it happens everyone follows to the 3rd round so there is only one diamond left.
