Members of Berry Bridge Club recently bid farewell to Audrey Griffin a past President and long time member of the club.

Audrey first joined the club in its infancy and was afounding member. She first joined the club in May, 2000 and was elected to the committee in November 2001 where she successfully served for five years. In 2002 Audrey was elected President and held this position for the next four years.

Audrey and her committee spearheaded the move to the club becoming incorporated  and this was achieved in January, 2003.

During her Committee years many progressive changes were introduced including, the first steps to scoring computerisation, interclub tournaments with both Bowral, Southern Highlands and Batemans Bay, air conditioning at the club’s home base at the Berry Masonic Centre and purchase of general  storage and  modern office equipment which went to streamlining the playing conditions for members. Audrey was a few months shy of being a continuous member for 18 years.

Audrey will be greatly missed by all members of Berry Bridge club and the bridge community of the Shoalhaven, she and her husband have moved interstate to be closer to family.

We owe a great debt of thanks to Audrey and wish her and her husband all the best in their new life.

What do you bid:

Two suited hands can be notorious if you open too high, for example if you open 2C with this hand,  partner will bid one of the other suits, now what is your second bid? If partner bids 2D over your 2C bid, where are you going now? 3D or 3C?  Partner may well bid one of the majors, what then, clubs or diamonds? Ok, we can bid diamonds, planning to bid clubs at the five level. We have to show the two suits to give partner a choice, but is slam on and how to we find it?

Open 1C and over partner’s bid, 3D showing a probable game or slam in the minors.  This is a super strong jump shiftreverse bid (the second suit bid is HIGHER than the first suit bid).

Partner held:

S Q1043

H AQJ10

D 10952

C 7

The bidding went as follows:

1C: 1H: 3D:  responder asked for aces and they landed in 6D.  

Yes it’s a risk opening at the one level, partner may pass with 0-5 points, but if that’s the case then game in one of the minorss may well be a difficult contract.   Also there’s a chance the opposition will come in with a bid, allowing you to show your second suit.

Happy bridging kk
