The RVBC Charity Christmas Swiss Pairs took place on Saturday. With fifteen tables it was the biggest bridge event in Rugby this year. The winners, with 85 VPs out of a possible 100, were Ishar & Ed White. The event also raised £200 for the Myton Hospice.

 

On Monday Evening eight tables played a share and relay Mitchell movement with an arrow switch on the last round. Geoff Bennet & Helen Foster came top with 67.26. Jim Bainbridge & Janet O’Connor were second with 59.82. Third place was shared by Chris Cooper & Sue Robards and Carol & Geoff Davies with 58.63. Judy Douglas & Diana Kinch were fifth with 56.85 followed by David & Jane Reed with 55.95.

 

On Tuesday of last week nine and half tables played a single winner movement. Brian Mawby & David Reed led the field with 61.81 followed by Frank Grace & Isobel Ross with 60.63. Not far behind were Judy Spring & Heather Spencer with 60.31. In fourth place were Graham Clarke & Audrey Upton with 58.75 followed by Caelia Chandler & Thelma Burton with 57.19 and Daphne Rourke & Laura Von Tucher with 56.94.

 

On Thursday evening three full tables played a Howell movement. Ishar White & John Robards were top with 60.00 followed by Don Prowse & Jim Bainbridge with 59.00. Zena Hutchinson and Cynthia Martin hold the top two spots in the Champagne Handicap but a chasing pack is closing the gap!

 

Last week, our newest team in local league bridge played the mighty Menagerie at Coventry Bridge Club. The Menagerie team boast Grand Masters, EBU Board members and other top rated players. Undaunted, the V Team beat them by a comfortable margin and are through to the second round of the Coventry League Handicap Cup. Well done! A famous victory.

 

On Monday morning eleven players took part in a workshop practicing and analysing slam bidding opportunities.

 

On Wednesday morning twenty seven players practiced responding to 1NT openings with balanced hands.

Monday Evening
Monday Evening

Monday Evening is a duplicate pairs evening. We aim to start play at 19.00, so please arrive a few minutes before so that the TD can count the tables, choose and initiate a suitable movement. We don't start a new round after 22.00, so the evening generally finishes around 22.15. The event takes place on all Mondays EXCEPT BANK HOLIDAYS, and for a generally two week break around Christmas and the New Year.

The evening takes place in the Club Room at the Dunchurch Village Hall. The Club Room was newly refurbished in October 2011, contains a kitchenette, and has its own adjacent toilet facilities. The entrance to the Club Room is at the far end of the complex. It is a porch like door with carriage lights on either side. There is well lit off street parking for over 70 cars.

There is a short break for coffee, tea and biscuits during the evening.

Boards are prepared using a duplimate machine. Scoring is done at the table using BridgeTabs, a popular and easy to use colour touch screen device. There is a rolling display of the position throughout the session. Results are distributed with integrated hand records by e-mail to the players. Results are also loaded to the web site, available to members, together with some statistical analysis in the "competitions" section.

There is a host available to play with single players. Visitors are welcome.The bridge is managed by a qualified TD. There is an arrangement in place with an external referee to handle any appeals.

The club is affiliated to the English Bridge Union. Players are permitted to use agreements defined as Level 3 in the EBU Regulations (the "Orange" Book). EBU Master Points are awarded to qualifying players.

We are proud of the pleasant atmosphere at the session. All players are expected to support their partner, and to treat their opponents with courtesy. That's what makes an enjoyable evening for everyone.

Please see the Fees section for table money.
