Top of the North / South side were Glenys Barton & Jan Maxon with a strong 67.5, David Reed & Edwige Quick scored 64.17 to come second and Alan Page & John Chard took third with 54.72. Mary Kerridge & Betty Pickard led East / West with 59.17 followed by Zena Hutchinson & Cecilia Walker with 58.06. Don Prowse & Pauline Batchelor were third with 56,67.

On Thursday Evening Nicky & Jim Bainbridge took first place with 65.63. Second out of the ten pairs were Chris Cooper & Margaret Aitchinson with 58.85. Brian Mawby & Peter Haliday were third with 57.81.

Cynthia Martin and Chris Cooper are leading in the individual champagne handicap, but could be caught!

Twenty eight players continued the spring quest for improvement in card play on Wednesday morning friendly practice session and the large new class of beginners had their second session on Tuesday evening.

The main theme is auctions that open with a bid at the two level or above.

  • First lesson is a stand-alone session on opening and responding to pre-emptive hands at the three, or four, level.
  • Two linked lessons follow: one on opening weak twos; and the second on opening stronger hands having given up the strong two opening. This is Benjaminised ACOL (“Benji”)
  • There are then three sessions themed around finding and bidding slams.
  • The “Is game on?” session focuses on techniques to determine whether you and partner have a game contract or not. This question is always at the heart of any duplicate competition!
  • Our quirky “1NT The Chameleon” is a tour of the use of the 1NT bid in many situations. It’s an excellent test and completion of bidding techniques.
  • We then look at the Multi 2D Opening, why?
  • Finally we look at some alternative bidding systems you may encounter and how to deal with them.

This is a ten week course. There is a break in the half term week. Much of the time is spent playing pre-set hands. There are colour notes to take away. The course is for players who have taken our Bridge 3 course, or have some duplicate experience.
