On Monday Evening Clare & Marion Dixon led nineteen pairs in a single winner Mitchell movement with 61.22. Second place was shared by Alan Webb & Chris Cassin and Geoff Bennett & Jim Bainbridge both scoring 60.42%. Third were Brian Mawby & David Reed on 58.04; fourth Graham Clarke & Smita Basu with 55.10 and in sixth, Chris Cooper & Sue Robards with 54.76.


It’s still all to play for in the Summer Handicap Pairs. Several of the pairs in contention have improved their average score. Geoff and Carol Davies are still in the lead, but Val Richards and Zena Hutchinson have moved back into a convincing second place; Alan Webb and Chris Cassin have moved up from 5th to 3rd and Pam Southern and Ken Fernie retain their fourth position.


On Tuesday of last week seventeen pairs were led by Brian Mawby & David Reed on a decisive 66.27. David Sanderson & John Crompton came second with 60.19. In third place were Elisabeth Davies & Ron Woolgar with 59.72 followed by Val Richards & Laura Von Tucher with 56.48. Pauline Batchelor & Janet O'Connor were fifth with 54.37 followed by Nicky & Jim Bainbridge.


On Wednesday morning fourteen players practised using transfers for game tries. On Monday morning ten players played random hands, with a dedicated mentor at each table, to discuss how they went, how they might have gone and how they did go at other tables and the effect on the score.


A pairs ladder match was played, and the round is expected to complete next week.


RBVC travelled to Wellingborough and brought home a 19-1 victory in the Northants Teams of Eight League. This moves us into second place in Division 3 South.

Advanced Bridge

Advanced Bridge is intended for the bridge player with some experience using an ACOL based bidding system.

Advanced Bridge sessions are generally offered during the three teaching terms starting in January, April and September.

Our material evolves to meet players' requests and ever changing bridge playing strategies. However we offer three different sets of ten sessions.

The "Jump" series cover auctions starting with Level 2 or above openings bids. Amongst others topics include: pre-empts, weak twos, strong hands in a weak two environment, the Multi 2 Diamonds.

The "Competitive" series covers competitives auctions. Amongst others, topics include: competiting against pre-empts and weak twos, unassuming cue bids, various doubles, competing against one no trump openings, escapes from one no trump doubled.

The "Playing" series covers advanced declarer and defence play. 

Sessions are generally in the form of a short discussion of the topic followed by the play hands with discussion.
