Welcome to Duplicate Lite & the Surrey Duplicate Bridge Club
Farewell Nancy Ruegg
Farewell Nancy Ruegg

Thank you to Nancy Ruegg!

Our number one volunteer is moving to Edmonton in October.

The club celebrated her years of service to the club with a cake.

We were also able to arrange free plays and partners at her new club.

We will miss her. Nancy promises to visit often.

Upcoming Events

Supervised Play - Wednesday mornings 10:00 - noon.

You learn by doing. The supervised play series gives you a chance to do this. Each session will start with a 10-15 minute mini lesson on the topic of the day. Participants will then play 8-10 hands based on this theme. After each hand is played, you can review a small sheet of paper in the board that describes how the hand should have been bid, should have been played, opening lead ... whatever is relevant to the topic of the day. The supervisor will mingle among the players to provide advice, answer questions and give more detailed explanations. The cost is $10 per session. You do not need a partner. The schedule is as follows:

August 29 - More play of the hand in a suit contract.

September  5 - Play of the hand in a no trump contract.

September 12 - More play of the hand in a no trump contract.

September 19 - Pre-empts at the 3 level & higher (long suit and a weak hand).

September 26 - Weak 2's (pre-empts at the 2 level). How partner should respond. How you should continue.


More Supervised Play - Wednesday Afternoon 2-4 pm.

More supervised play sessions have been scheduled for October & November. The format remains the same. Only the time has changed. Starting October 3, the game time changes to 10:15 am to match the game time on Mondays & Thursdays. The lesson time slot moves to 2 pm.

October 10 - Overcalls : The opponents open the bidding. Should I overcall (make a bid for our side)? What should my partner do after I overcall? How high should we bid?

October 17 - Takeout Doubles: Partner, please bid something, I have support for the unbid suits.

October 24 - Negative Doubles: Partner opens the bidding. The next opponent overcalls. My double shows the other two suits and asks partner to bid something.

November 14 - Cappelletti & Blooman: How to compete after the opponents open 1NT.

November 21 - Opening 2C: Opening big hands with 2 Clubs and slam bidding.

November 28 - Duplicate procedures: Alerts, announcements, laws, ethics, etc. (Lesson only, no play.)


299er Game - Every Second Thursday

We are continuing with our 299er section on alternating Thursdays. We have approximately half of our players choosing to play in this section. We want to remind everyone that only players with 299 or fewer masterpoints are eligible to play in this section. If you have more than this, please play in the Open section. Anyone can play in the Open section, regardless of materpoints.
