Congratulations to winners of our Christmas Duplicate Pascall Ricketts and Ian Galletti.
At this session, plays were able to compare their scores with the experts who competed for their countries in Wroclaw, Poland at the 2016 World Championships.
Here are the hands and travellers. If you look at the result travellers from our game you will find a suggested auction for hands 3,7,8 & 11.
Congratulations to this month's winner's Michael Kaye and Ivor McLoughlin. A worthy win for the pair, and noticeably the only ones to defeat 3NT on Board 8. Well done Ivor for your smart unlocking play!
We have a new feature. Each month the Director will select four hands based on a contemporary theme. This month we are improving our Defense. Hands 3,8,10 and 17 had a lesson for our defensive game. The STAR Defender Hand Commentary is available to print, or click on your scorecard for Boards 3,8, 10 and 17 for a tip to defend simply and cleanly to win matchpoints.
WHere are some links to some of the methods and terms mentioned for you to explore at your leisure.
