Brian Thorp and John McDermott won this years’ Summer Pairs Handicap Competition. Handicapped on previous season’s performance, they put in a steady and constant performance on our Monday Evening Pairs Session. The competition is designed to encourage our improving players to join in with our friendly but challenging senior sessions. Well done both. Chris Cooper, in the middle, presented the trophy.

On Monday Afternoon Pat & Ron Fisher led nine pairs with 65.28 and Cynthia Martin & Avis Raynor came second with 61.11.

A busy ten table Monday Evening session, playing a simple Mitchell movement, was led by a close scoring pack: sharing first place were Geoff Bennett & Helen Foster and Chris Cassin & Alan Webb both pairs scoring 60.42; within one percent were Maxwell Kynoch & Malcolm Melrose with 59.52; inn fourth were Adrian Williams & Don Prowse with 56.55; and David Reed & Brian Mawby scored 55.36; welcome back to the table Brian!

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week ten tables were led by Caelia Chandler & Celia Tunnicliffe with 67.22; close behind were Jim Bainbridge & Lo Tolbutt scoring 66.67; Peter Neville & Alan Page scored 60.56; Smita Basu & Roy Blackmore scored 56.39 and Don Prowse & Keith Montford took 53.89.

On Friday Evening our monthly teams of four event was led by Peter & Vera Iredale with Dennis Angove & Rosemary Jordan taking +76 IMPs; Pam Southern & Ken Fernie with Mary Kerridge & Jeff Stafford took second place with +38 IMPs; and +30 IMPs got third place for Richard & Rhona Holland with Don Prowse & Caelia Chandler.

In League bridge we had a disappointing loss to Northampton B in the Northants League, but the Blues opened their Coventry League campaign with a victory over Peugot.

Mentored Pivot Teams

This is a chance to play randomly dealt hands with or against an experienced player and then take several minutes to discuss the hand, how it was played and how it might have been played. The same hand is played at other tables, and you will have a chance to understand the differences.

Play is between teams of four players, each led by an experienced player. For each of the three rounds you will swap partners, so you play one round with a mentor, and two against.

Hands will be scored both on a radio linked table scorer and on personal score cards. At the end of each round you return to your team to compare the results you have with your team mates. This provides a chance to understand team scoring, checking it against the computer.

The session is suitable for players of some experience and the fee is at the advanced lesson rate.

There are up to 12 places at each session and we need to know the number of  players to make sure we have full teams for the session. So please let us know if you would like to attend.
