An analysis of the hands over the past 8 weeks reveals some interesting statistics.
The analysis is based on what was makeable with perfect play/bidding ( not what was bid or actually made)
8 times per night there is a potential game going hand for either party and 15/16 times there is ony a part score.
Interestingly because the computer ensures the cards are shuffled correctly the 1NT/Pass out appeared on less than one occassion per night (occured 4 times for E/W and twice for N/S ) thus upsetting the 1NT specialists !!
1NT or Pass Out appeared on less that one occassion each night
2 level and 3 level part scores occurred 14 times per night for both side
3NT occured twice for both sides
4 level bids occurred 2.5 times for both sides
5 level bids and higher occurred 3.5 times for both sides
Castleknock Bridge Club is a dynamic club with over 220 members many of whom joined the club in recent years and many have never read "The Laws of Duplicate Bridge" and dont particularly want to.
The most important law to remember is that Bridge is a game and players are reminded that they should treat all players including their partners in a civilised and friendly manner. Players are also reminded that your club is run by a committee of volunteers who are not paid for their services.
In the website's main menu there is a page "Bridge Etiquette" it outlines many of the rules of bridge in everyday languaage and it is worthwhile to have a browse when you have a few minutes to spare.
When you have 10.5 tables your choice is either
(1) a Mitchell 22 board movement N/S play 22 boards and and the East West play 20 boards or
(2) a Bowman Movement were N/S can play 27 boards and E/W can play 24 boards. The price you pay is that Table 1 and 10 share the boards all night. Boards and people move like an ordinary Mitchell.
Due to their success in recent national competitions the following members have been regraded
