We play Duplicate Bridge every Monday evening, starting at 7.00pm and every Tuesday afternoon starting at 1.30pm. Play is 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 or 1.15pm respectively 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 £2.00 and £2.50 per session for members and visitors respectively.
Web site queries to John Basford, firstname.lastname@example.org, please.
Monday and Tuesday
At the Monday evening session we normally play 24 boards with no interval but there is the opportunity to pick up a tea/coffee and biscuit during the session. On Tuesday afternoons the session has a break half way through for tea/coffee, biscuits and a chat. We usually play 21 boards and this is more a No Fear bridge session.
A Genuine Bridge Experience
We now have genuinely random hands produced using our "Duplimate" dealing machine. 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 is with 7 inch tablets which give a high degree of visibility and send all the results entered, by WiFi, to a central computer. We use Bridgescore/Bridgepal as the scoring progam, acknowledged as perhaps the easiest and most innovative program available. The results are then available for viewing on this web site on the evening of the event. All results are published both without and with handicap values.
