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.
AGM Thursday 18th April

SPRING CUP (RIDDINGS)
Team of 4 Entry 2019
In order to make life easier, and to overcome computer software issues when scoring over a number of weeks, the format of the Spring Cup is changing for 2019.
This year, the competition will be a Multiple Teams event which is as straightforward as a normal duplicate bridge evening. In simple terms, every E/W pair from each team will move around the room playing each N/S pair – just as players would do on a normal Thursday evening. Therefore, there will be no assignments – it is an all play all event and it doesn’t even matter if there is an odd number of teams taking part.
The difference to a normal evening is that after ALL matches have finished, players return to their ‘home’ tables and score up just like the Ripley Winter Pivot Teams event. This will provide each team with a positive or negative IMP score which will be carried forward for each week of the competition. Captains will need to hand in their scorecards and then a table showing the rolling results will be posted on the website.
The full rules will be posted on the website but the competition really is very straightforward.
Remember….no more than two players ranked Queen or higher at the entry closing date can be in the same team.
Entry forms by MARCH 21st to Di, Richard, Stuart, Dove or Phil please.

The rules can be found within the 'INFORMATION' tab in LH Side panel
