This club was formed to play bridge and more importantly to get a chance to know the people with whom we spend so much time. To that end, we spend the afternoon competing and afterwards meet for dinner. Please join us.
Congratulations! Masood won the 2017 Future Masters race with 20.9 masterpoints for the year. He was also first in the 2016 Unit Ace of Clubs and Mini McKinney races. Well done.
In the open competition for masterpoints won at CBC, David Stern finished strong with 26.16 mps won at CBC in 2017. Congratulations Charley.
October the month of masterpoints. Winning was worth 2.85mps.
This hand was from the Dayton Regional. Thoughts: LHO showed at least 5 spades, so the natural 4th best spade lead is out. RHO bid clubs so underleading the ♣ K seems masochistic. RHO also bid notrump so he has the diamond stopper(s) and four to the jack will be awfully hard to set up. But, it's better than spades or clubs. What about hearts? Dummy showed 4 hearts, declarer probably has at most 3 which gives partner at least 4 maybe more. Partner has at most 5 points. Leading a heart will either work really well or be horrible. Passive or attack? I decided to attack resulting in down 2 for declarer.
No partner? No problem. Don't stay home just because you don't have a partner. Players will be paired up and the director is on standby to play if there are an odd number.

The following is the procedure for correcting scoring errors.
If it is an entry error meaning it was entered into the computer incorrectly, notify a director and it will be reentered correctly. An example is the score sheet shows plus 620 for NS, but was entered into the computer as plus 620 for EW. This is an entry error requiring nothing further than pointing it out. Score sheets are kept until the next game so the deadline for fixing those errors are the beginning of the next game.
In the case of scores entered incorrectly on the score sheet, both sides must agree to the correction. For example the score sheet reads 1NT E made 2 plus 120 for NS. Something is wrong, but what? Should E really be N or S? Or is East correct and the score should be plus for EW? If you find one of these errors, please contact the pair then both pairs contact me and I will correct it. In rare cases,the director may be able to correct an "obvious" error otherwise if the pairs do not agree, the score as written will stand.
