Welcome to Pinner Bridge Club

2016 is the 80th anniversary of Pinner Bridge Club, which was founded in 1936

We are a thriving and successful Bridge Club situated in the picturesque and historic village of Pinner in North West London. The club was established in 1936 and we have members at all levels. Some are beginners, while other of our members have succeeded at the very highest levels in National Competitions. Some prefer a quiet Club night with their friends, while others seek the more competitive competitions run by Middlesex and the surrounding counties.
The Club runs Duplicate, Rubber Bridge, Bridge Lessons and Gentle Duplicate sessions.
Visitors and new members are always welcome.

We operate a host system every evening, so you can turn up without a partner, and are guaranteed a game.

Affiliated to the English Bridge Union - EBU Number 204859

Tel: 020 8866 3166 (There is no one normally at the club outside game and lesson times)

Sunday Afternoon Bridge at Pinner - Cancelled

Due to unforseen circumstances, we are no longer running bridge on a Sunday afternoon.

Defence problem
You start by leading AK, partner and declarer following to both tricks.
What do you play at trick 3?

There are no more diamonds so anything you lead can be ruffed by declarer.  However you have a trump holding that may provide a trick, if declarer has to overruff high, thereby promoting a trick for your J.  If you lead Q, your partner may decide not to ruff your winner, so lead 10.  This is better than leading a low diamond, as there is a chance your partner has no trumps.

Declarer Play Problem

West leads A, then K against your contract of 4. East discards a club on the 2nd spade. West then leads a 3rd spade. What do you play from dummy?

Apart from the spades you have just one club loser.  Although you can ruff the 3rd spade in dummy, the problem if you have no high trumps, so East will just overruff, and you will lose 4 tricks.  Instead of ruffing, the winning play is to discard a club loser from dummy - a "loser on loser" play.  Another way of think about this is that you are "transfering the ruff" from spades to clubs.  East will ruff the 3rd spade (or declarer will win Q). After drawing trumps, you can later ruff a club in dummy.

Pinner Bridge Club's Website

Welcome to our club.  Our website uses bridgewebs, which gives us a professional looking website, and one which is part of an international grouping of Bridge sites.

Our bridge results, with hand records as scored by ScoreBridge with Bridgemates are on this site.

If there are any improvements you'd like to see.  Please contact Tony Staw for comments or requests for the website.

Every now and then I come across a bridge problem that I think others would find interesting, so I try and put this on the website.  If you have come across a bridge problem you would like to share with others, please contact Tony to add it to this website.
