22nd May

On Saturday the first ever Green Point event took place at the Dunchurch Sports Field and Village Hall. Northamptonshire CBA's event attracted thirty eight pairs from a wide area. The top pair were  Alan Patel & Roger Harris from Stratford. The top Northants pair were John Josephs & Ross Stacey, fourth placed. Nicky & Jim Bainbridge were the highest placed of the nine pairs from Rugby.

On Monday Afternoon eight tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. Two pairs tied for the top of the North / South side, Lesley Kinch & Helen Appleby and David Cooper & David Harrison scoring 57.14. Jim & Nicky Bainbridge led East / West with 58.33 followed by John Jarvis & Theresa Hillier with 56.55.

On Monday Evening seven and a half tables played the same movement. Max Kynoch & Malcolm Melrose led North / South with 58.33 followed by Terry Leary & Graham Logan with 57.54. Brian Mawby & David Reed topped East / Wesr with 56.60 and Daphne Rourke & Sue Robards scored 51.74.

On Tuesday Afternoon of last week Brian Jacks & Don Prowse, scoring 58.63, led the North / South side of a two-winner movement; Chris Cooper & Margaret Aitchison scored 56.80. Brian Mawby & David Reed led the East / West side of the nine and a half table field with 57.14; John Cockburn & Roy Roberts scored 55.36.

Five tables practised leading against trump contract on Wednesday morning, hopefully learning from the somewhat mixed results!

On Thursday Evening four tables played a Howell movement in the first of the new series of the individual champagne handicap. Brian Mawby & David Reed led with 63.89.

The two prizes in the previous round went to John Jarvis and David Edwards.

Advanced Card Play
Advanced Card Play

This is a ten week course designed for players with some experience, or having taken our Bridge 1 and 2 courses.

This course focusses on both declarer and defence card play. Some knowledge of duplicate bridge and some experience of bridge card play will be helpful, but complex bidding expertise is not needed.

The course should 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, defenders should improve their ability to communicate with each other through the card play and to keep declarer to the minimum number of tricks.

Players can sign up for the whole course, or take individual lessons as suits them. The sessions on Attitude and Count and Suit Preference Signals do go well together.

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