Our Duplicate Bridge Sesssions
Our Duplicate Bridge Sesssions

We play Duplicate Bridge every Monday evening, starting at 7.00pm in the Old School Room, Lisvane (corner of Heol-y-Delyn and Llwyn-y-Pia Road). The site has its own car parking. Please be there for 6.45pm so that the movement can be set up promptly on the computer. We can accommodate 12 tables. At the moment our membership is open so that any new members or visitors would be very welcome. The cost is £1.50 and £2.00 per session for members and visitors respectively.

Web site queries to John Basford, 44cardiff@gmail.com, please. 

Recent Developments

A Genuine Bridge Experience

We now have dealt boards which have been generated by computer and produced using our "Duplimate" dealing machine. This ensures a truly random distribution of hands. Such random hands can only be achieved in normal shuffling by at least 7 riffle shuffles or 200 hand-over-hand shuffles; this means that hands dealt in the normal way are far from random. The additional benefit is that all deals and their results can be reviewed on the web site. A quick look at the red boards indicates where pairs have gone wrong and the green boards indicate where pairs have succeeded  - a genuine aid to improved play.

One Winner Movements

All our movements generate one winner so that competition is with all members of the club. This is achieved by the appropriate use of arrow switches. While not perfect, this does achieve a high degree of genuine competition (around 90% for an 8 table, 24 board movement), and any imperfections decrease as results accumulate with time.

Scoring

Scoring is with 7 inch tablets which give a high degree of visibility and send all the results entered, by WiFi, to a central computer. The results are then available for viewing on this web site on the evening of the event.
