2nd October

Last week, on Monday Morning our new beginners' group went on to their second lesson. Still space if you'd like to join. Still free.

​On Monday Afternoon seven and a half tables played a Web-Mitchell movement. Chris Longthorn and Pat Anning lead North / South with 58.33; The East / West was led by Bob Reeve and Jean Child with 63.19​.​ 

On Monday Evening five and a half tables played a Double-Hesitation Mitchell movement led by Peter and Vera Iredale with 66.07. ​Due to the sad loss of Malcolm Melrose, he & Max Kynoch won't be able to complete their participation in the Founders Championship Pairs. Peter & Vera Iredale lead the rest of the field.​

​The first practice session of the week, on Tuesday morning, looked at playing No Trumps contracts in some depth, and some tricky hands.

​On Tuesday Afternoon eight and a half tables played a two-winner Mitchell. Nicky Bainbridge and Carole Broadhurst led North/South with 56.46. East/West led by Ann Bur​r​age and Ken Miles with 57.14.

​Our Tuesday evening replay, the second practice session of the week, replayed some hands from Monday Afternoon with detailed discussion of the bidding, card play, and the results from the previous day.

​On Wednesday Morning's Friendly Practice session a chatty but thoughtful four and a half tables learned about ​limit raise replies in the third practice session of the week.

Thursday morning saw the fourth practice session looking at the negative double, a really useful bid.

On Thursday evening Six and a half tables played a single-winner hesitation Mitchell movement led by Brian Mawby and David Reed scoring 63.33.

Lutterworth Bridge Club

Lutterworth Bridge Club, meets on Wednesday evenings (7pm), at Cotesbach Village Hall. You’ll find quality EBU affiliated bridge played in a good spirit.

Advanced Card Play Practice
Advanced Practice

These are one-off practice sessions themed on a card play topic.

Some knowledge of duplicate bridge and some experience of bridge card play will be helpful, but complex bidding expertise is not needed.

Declarer Play Topics help declarers to find the best strategy for their cards, and to look for the key clues from the defence play to make extra tricks.

Conversely, defence play topics should improve their defenders' ability to communicate with each other through the card play and to keep declarer to the minimum number of tricks.

Defence is about team work. Regular partnerships could well get the best out of the defence sessions by attending together.

Although all sessions can be used as one-offs, the sessions on Attitude and Count and Suit Preference Signals do go well together.
