On Saturday the club held its Christmas event. Nineteen tables played a six round Swiss Pairs. 

The event was won by Malcolm Melrose and Max Kynoch pictured on the outside here. Max making a special display of his winner's pen! Pauline Smith and Wilma Kiernan, on the inside, were second, a very special result for them. Well done! 

​The Raffle raised £300 for the Air Ambulance.

​On Monday the weather had become very cold with snow lying all over Rugby. Twenty players still made it to the afternoon session and played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Judy Douglas & Diana Kinch led North/South with 70.00. Bill & Lyn Stubbins topped East/West with 60.00.

In the evening it was still colder, but four and a half tables played the first event in the new Founders Championship Pairs series. ​

​Malcom Melrose and Max Kynoch led the Howell movement with 59.92; followed by Janet O'Connor & Michael Ward with 57.14.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week, ​six and a half tables played a Hesitation Mitchell. Lo Tolbutt & Jim Bainbridge won with 62.38 followed by Edwige Quick & Sue Robards.

On Wednesday morning we were delighted to welcome two graduates from our beginners' course to our friendly themed practice session. The field of five tables practiced opener's re-bid when the auction has gone: 1S;P;1NT;P;?.

Jim & Nicky Bainbridge, with 59.72, led the Thursday Evening session of four tables; Chris Cooper & Margaret Aitchison scored 58.33; and Dennis Angove & Rosemary Jordan took 56.94.

In 2012, the RVBC moved into a virtually dedicated Club Room with a separate entrance. We have room for up to 10 tables. We store our equipment in cupboards in the room. We do not have to take tables up and down and do not have to move or stack chairs. We have our own notice board with news and results. The room includes refurbished kitchenette with fridge and dishwasher. There are clean comfortable toilet facilities, including accessible facilities.

We serve unlimited tea, coffee and biscuits in each session, and we believe you should enjoy them. Mugs and cups are always provided and are washed hygienically in a dishwasher.

 
Advanced Auctions
Advanced Auctions

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

First 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”)

Then three sessions on finding and bidding slams.

The “Is game on?” focuses on techniques to decide whether you and partner have a game contract. This question is always at the heart of any duplicate session!

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.
