Our next seminar takes place on Monday 5th November, the topic being Protecting against 3 level pre-empts. After the bidding starts (3♣) - P - (P) - ?: Should you Pass or bid? What should you bid? How should you describe your hand? There's not a lot of bidding space - how is it best utilised?
The half-hour seminar starts promptly at 18.45, it's free and open to all. We operate a hosting system, so you don't need to come with a partner if you want to stay on and play, which we hope you will.
On November 12th we shall be running a heat of the Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs. This is our only charity event this year, so we hope members will make a special effort to attend and support this excellent cause. There will be an additional £3 table money; all of the £3 will go to Children in Need because the club is funding the extra costs incurred.
Please see the Calendar for details of our other events in November.

We have twice weekly sessions of good standard Duplicate Bridge at the very attractive South Bucks Bridge Centre - a purpose-converted 16th Century barn in its own grounds, between Beaconsfield, Maidenhead and Slough
Our main session is at 7.30 every Monday evening, when we play Pairs, except Teams of Four on the third Monday each month except when this is a bank holiday. A host is available to play with anyone without a partner on Pairs evenings.
We use Bridgemates, for instant scoring, with current scores displayed on a large screen. Hand records and results print-outs are available within a few minutes of the end of every session.
Several teams from the Club compete in the Berks and Bucks League of 8, with the A team in the first division. We also encourage less experienced players and hold monthly free seminars before the start of an evening session.
A host is available for all Monday evening Duplicate Pairs sessions,
so anyone coming along without a partner is guaranteed a game. This service may be used by any player not more than 6 times in a calendar year.
This does not apply for teams evenings or special events- check the calendar
