Play it again feature

Have you tried the play it again feature?  It's been there a while but some people don't know about it

Look in the Results section.  Go to the results for a particular date and click on one of the pairs.  You can now select the hand and the results you're interested in.  Below the hand record, you'll see the play it again button.  If you click on that it may initially give you an option of which programme to use.  It doesn't matter which you choose, you can change it later.  I suggest the BSOL option.  You'll now see the hand with the how many tricks can be made in the different denominations by each position.  Select the denomination and declarer and click play.  You can then go through the play of the hand.  For the hand due to play the optimum cards to play are shown in green and cards which will reduce the number of tricks that side can take are shown in yellow (colours may vary with programme).  Of course it always knows when to drop singleton Kings and which way to take a 2-way finesse.

Introduction
Introduction

 

Ripley Bridge Club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and the Derbyshire Contract Bridge Association. We hold 3 sessions of bridge each week, on Monday and Thursday Evenings, and Wednesday mornings.

On Monday evenings we meet at St. Joseph's Church Hall,  94, Butterley Hill,  Ripley DE5 3LW and on the Thursday evening we meet at Riddings Park Community Centre, West Street, Riddings DE55 4EW.

Play starts at 7pm.  Please try and be seated for 6:50 pm.

We suggest less experienced players start with the Thursday evening at Riddings, but are welcome on either evening.

On Wednesday mornings, we meet at Pentrich Village Hall, Main Road, Pentrich DE5 3RE  from 9:45 to 12:30.  This is a Beginner/Improver session of supervised practice, instruction and play held under the direction of Phil Upton, MEBUTA. The session comprises a short introduction to a topic of interest, followed by duplicate on a 'Draw for Partner' basis so singles are welcome.
