The final Tuesday of the month will again be run as a 50:50 cash prize event.
As usual, there will be a 50:50 distribution of table money between the club and the 'winners' on the night. The overall winning pair will receive 40% and the pair closest to a 50% score will receive 10% of table money. This month there will be an additional small prize donated by the president for the best result on a slam bidding table. It will be judged by the president and could be awarded to a declaring pair for the highest scoring slam or to a defending pair for the best defence against a makeable slam. The boards will be dealt normally by our beloved machine but the session will have at least one makeable slam, to allow the prize to be won!
The event is open to all, with visitors and beginners most welcome. No partner? Never fear; it is hosted!
The Swiss Pairs Annual Club Championship was won in fine style by Moira Wadsworth and Andrew Mitchell who managed to keep their seats at the top table for most of the evening. They held off a late flourish from Stephen and Andrew (Hardy) who came in second, closely followed by Lynn and Gail. Congratulations to all - and a special thank you to Stephen and Andrew for successfully organising and scoring this event.
Welcome to the website of the club that offers duplicate bridge sessions for young and old. The club has its own private premises and is well established, providing duplicate bridge sessions for over 160 members. It is a member of the English Bridge Union and the majority of the club events generate EBU Masterpoints. There are also occasional sessions that tie in with simultaneous county or national events. In addition to a comfortable playing area, the club has its own kitchen and licensed bar.
Halifax Bridge Club has three teams of eight players that compete during the winter months in the Yorkshire Sunday League.
Members will be aware that we have privileged, free use of some parking spaces in Clare Hall, opposite the club. However, that use is under threat because of cars not being parked 'tight' to the wall and obstructing the road to residents. Members are asked to pull in to within a foot of the wall in future, dropping off passengers prior to parking. This concession is invaluable to us and members are asked to comply to safeguard this facility.
