The Bridge Warehouse offers low prices to everyone, all the time, and if a competitor is cheaper then they will do their best to match the price. All profits are reinvested in the EBU, so why would you shop elsewhere?

New Clearing Centre for Unaccompanied Players

As next Monday sees a Club Championship evening, there is no host.  Instead we will try in advance to match players without partners.  So if you don't have a partner for next Monday 11th September and would like one, please contact kay@claygater.uk (or phone her using the number on the Club Calendar Card).  At the moment, the players seeking a partner are:

  • NO-ONE at the moment

Contact one of the players listed above if you would like to play with them, and please tell Kay if this means a player listed above is no longer available.

  Club Championship 2017-18 League Table

Monday saw the start of the 2017-18 Club Championship, which takes place over seven Monday evenings in consecutive months until February.  We intend to show the cumulative league table on the home page for a couple of days after each of those sessions.

Remember that, even if you fared badly on Monday, nothing is lost, because it is your best four results which count.  You can even switch partners if you like, but those best four results have to be with the same partner.  And those results have to be with a club member.  For that reason, below the table I include a list of eligible members who have not yet participated in the contest.  Please alert me asap if our membership records are incorrect.

Gavin

  New 2017 Laws of Duplicate
New 2017 Laws of Duplicate

New worldwide laws of duplicate are being introduced this year, and Claygate will aim to operate under them from the 7th August session onwards. Half-day courses for directors have been scheduled by the EBU, but not all of them are nearby or ahead of the implementation date.  So please be patient with us overloaded directors as we digest the new laws and their implications.

Here is a summary of Andrew Kambites' summary, kindly sent to me by Joyce Grant. His full document is on the website at http://www.bridgewebs.com/cgi-bin/bwok/bw.cgi?club=claygate&pid=display_page33

  • Law 7A instructs that a board shall be left in the centre of the table facing the right way.
  • Law 9: Dummy may try to prevent an irregularity (Law 9c) but if it has already occurred dummy must wait till the end of the hand (Law 9d).
  • Law 23 is new and deals with the concept of a comparable call. An example: South opens 1NT and North bids a 2♥ before West has a chance to call. East does not accept the bid so law 31 applies: West decides to bid 2♦. North/South do play transfers when there has been intervention. Under new law 31A.2(a), North is allowed to bid 2♠ without penalty. The 2♥ transfer showed spades, and now 2♠ shows spades. 2♠ is thus a comparable callthere is no unauthorised information left from the original call that the substituted call has not made available.
  • Law 66D clarifies the situation if there is a claim of a revoke which is disputed: if one side has mixed its cards, the director automatically rules in favour of the other side.
  • Law 68D: the old law rightly said that following a claim, play ceases. Now if all four players agree to the board being played out, it can be — but then no player can subsequently ask for the director to rule on the hand.

  Information for Visitors about the Club

We play Duplicate Pairs each Monday, except Bank Holidays.

The club is affiliated to the EBU, so every session attracts Masterpoints for the highest-ranked players on the night.

Play starts at 7.30 pm, but all players must arrive by 7.20 pm.

A session normally consists of 24 boards, and it should be over by 10.30 pm.

Visitors are very welcome.

We always play at Claygate Centre for the Community, Elm Road, Claygate KT10 0EH.

Commonly called the 'Day Centre', its phone number is: 01372 463476    Map  

The cost per player, which covers both play and refreshments, is:

£2.00 for members, and £3.00 for visitors.

As the club is approaching its limit of 110 members, we may soon have to introduce a waiting list for membership applications.
