OK, so you open 1NT vulnerable, and those awful opponents Double. Partner is sitting with very few points thinking "Oh No, what can I do, we might go 3 down doubled for -800?"
Come along at 6.30 pm on Wednesday 2nd May and find the answer! It will only take 20 minutes, and if you wish, hopefully you do, you can attend that Wednesday evening’s pairs bridge session afterwards. There will be a stand-in so if you're without a partner, no problem. It would be helpful if you put your name on the list on the Board, but if you can't manage that, just come along and join in.
Please note that the snow delayed 4th Round of the W F Kerr Trophy will now be held on Wednesday 25th April.
More ongoing improvements to the premises mean that catering will be reduced on WEDNESDAY as the kitchen is being tiled then (cancelled on Friday last). Tea/Coffee and biscuits etc will be available as usual, but no hot food.
On Friday, 27th, the kitchen is being painted, so no catering, and advance warning for anyone with allergies to paint, who may need to steer clear for a few days.
Mondays: 2 - 4 pm.
Following the end of Monday classes, the new weekly bridge play and learn session being trialled at DBC is now on a Monday from 2 pm to 4 pm. All current students at bridge classes and those who are within 12 months of leaving classes, who would like to get more play experience will be welcomed. The format, agreed by discussion with students, will be play 4 hands under club conditions, then pause to discuss bidding/play of those hands, then further 4 hands and so on. Hopefully this should help particlarly those who have little play experience to make sense of the lessons, and also help you to gradually remember what you have already learned. Come along and give it a try!
Thursdays: 10.00 - 12.00
Liz Hunter will be re-starting her summer Play and Coaching sessions. Continuation will depend on numbers.
Further training group supported play sessions on Thursday evenings will be announced as they come on stream, after Thursday evening lessons finish.
Please remember to always arrive 10 minutes before session start time.

Apologies from the Club for results not appearing online. They are pinned up in the clubhouse, but as we are currently having intermittent Internet access problems it is sometimes difficult to publish them to the website.
Engineers visit on Monday resulted in a more in depth survey of the premises and a decision to draw up a plan which would be more likely to deal with the age and requirements of the building structure and hopefully result in a satisfactory long term result. Inevitably of course this means some further delay in getting the work done, and we are of course at the mercy of contractors re final dates. We will keep pushing and keep you posted.
Those who help us fund The Slam, by taking out advertisements in it and the Website, have now been updated. Please have a look at the list, HERE, and in more detail in the tab on the left 'Support our Advertisers' and do remember to contact them when you are in need! Many thanks to all of them.

NB All of these sessions have a standby system in operation. That means you can arrive without a partner, and a partner will be made available to you. Make sure you tell your partner that you're new to club duplicate bridge, and want to play Basic Acol with a Weak No Trump. When booking in to any session, please do arrive at the latest, 15 mins before the start and do let the person on the desk know you have just come from classes and aren't very experienced, and someone will then ensure you are looked after.
Go on, don't let what you've learned go to waste - getting some playing practice sometimes makes it stick better than pouring over notes.
