GOODBYE TO MUNDESLEY GOLF TOURNAMENT (2008-2018)

A big thank you to Vivienne for organising  the AYNW Bridge Circle Golf Tournament for the past ten years (2008-2018) both at Coventry and Mundesley  Golf Club. We would like to give the shield to the Golf Club for safe keeping but if anyone else would like to take over the running of the event in the future there is plenty of room on the back of the trophy for future winners!

THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE BIRD TABLE
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE BIRD TABLE

We had a "fun" individual Bridge party at 33 today. We all played three hands with different partners. I hope our "Newbies" enjoyed the day and are now ready for their Bridge journey!

Thank you everyone for the bird table which you gave to David and myself last year. It is regularly used by all our garden birds, and even the pidgeons manage to get inside!  

HANDICAP PAIRS

Congratulations to previous winners of the "Handicap Pairs" George & Irene and Bill & Sue.

USEFUL TIPS

(1) AVOID JUMPING STRAIGHT TO 3NT WHEN RESPONDING

 

South
K 8
T 9 6
A 8 5 3
K Q J 7

 

North East South West
1H Pass 2C Pass
2H Pass 4H

South should avoid making an immediate response of 3NT. It takes a lot of bidding space and leave opener no room to describe their hand. 3NT might not be the right contract or a slam might be missed if opener has a strong hand.

Better to just make a forcing bid of 2C and see what partner bids next. In fact there is no hand where you need to respond 3NT after a 1 opening, as you can  usually bid a 4 card suit or even perhaps a three card minor (inventabid)!

 

(2) DON'T PRE-EMPT WITH A 4 CARD MAJOR

Don't open the bidding with a pre-empt if your hand contains a four card major in addition to the pre-empt suit.

Pre-empting tends to shut up your partner so you may miss out on a major suit fit and even miss a major suit game.

North

4h

If North pre-empts with 3c South will have to pass. Although South has opening points it is not enough to change suit after a pre-empt (need 16+).
