Frome Bridge Club
Frome Bridge Club

Welcome to the Frome Bridge Club web site. The club is affiliated to the EBU and aims to provide friendy but competitive duplicate bridge for members and visitors.

Boards are electronically duplimated and Bridgemate scoring is used meaning that results are available as soon as the last board is completed.

Frome is a pleasant Somerset market town and is situated 12 miles South of Bath.

The club meets every Monday at 7.00pm in Wesley Methodist Church at Wesley Slope, Frome.

In addition, we provide lessons followed by assisted play on Thursday mornings from 9.30 to noon.

For further details contact:  John Perry on 01373 467508.

What are Master Points and the Ranking System?

Master Points(MP) and the Ranking system

After each Monday session the results for the evening are uploaded to the EBU.

The EBU allocates MPs to each player in the top ranks for that evening

depending on the number of tables in play.

For example, on Monday 3rd Sept. there were 8 tables so MPs were awarded

to the top three pairs for both N/S and E/W.

The ranks start with:

Local Master              100 MPs

Club Master                 200 MPs 

Area Master                500 MPs

District Master           1000 MPs

County Master           2500 MPs

Master                        5000 MPs
and then upward

Best Behaviour at Bridge

 As declarer, if you can clearly see that all the remaining tricks are yours, claim them rather than play on. You must specify clearly your line of play, including a statement about drawing any remaining trumps.   

Frome in the Somerset County League

The third round of matches in the

Somerset County League took place on

Friday the 23rd November.

Both your teams recorded excellent victories.

Ray, Frank, David and Vince were matched against a team from Wilton. After two matches these two teams were first and second in the "D" Division. Frome repeated the score from their first match of the season with a superb 19-1 victory over Wilton.

This confirms Frome as the top team in the "D" Division.

The team in the "A" Division played very well in the first half against our opponents from Yeovil Bridge Club. There were no major swings but we accumulated imps by good defence and declarer play. At the interval we were 25 imps up. Cut and thrust in the second half saw the spoils more evenly divided. At the end, Frome finished the winners with 21imps. This represented a victory by 14 - 6.

The next round is in December.
