Elsa Nelson has won the August segment of the Ruff Club Ladder. This was Elsa's first Ladder win and with it comes the £50 bimonthly prize.  The Ladder continues into the next two-month segment and Sean Moruzzi, who has also yet to win the Ladder, has a handy lead in the October race.

BriAn Electronic Scoring

Ruff Club duplicates are often scored using the BriAn electronic scoring system.  The BriAn system (= "Bridge on iPhone and Android") uses mobile phone technology to replace traditional tabletop scorers.  Players can use their own smart phones or other devices, such as iPads, or use android scoring tablets supplied by the club.

We believe BriAn is a very player-friendly system that has advantages over other systems.  When results are entered for each deal, the next screen shows the full lay-out of the deal, the available tricks in each suit and a full travelling score slip in a single screen. Results of previous boards and a full table of current rankings can be accessed from any device via a  menu. The bridge director can create and modify games, adjust scores if necessary and create final files suitable for posting to the web.

If you have a suitable android or iPhone you can become a scorer simply by downloading the free BriAn Bridge app.  Go to the app shop in the normal way and search for "Brian Bridge". It's free to install and easy to use,  You can read more about BriAn Bridge on the website http://www.brianbridge.net.   Becoming a scorer is fun but entirely optional - extra scoring tablets are always available from the club.
