SUFFOLK BRIDGE LUNCH

Andy Higginson & Chris Kennedy from Colchester bridge club were the comfortable winners of the Suffolk birdge lunch at Elmswell on Wednesday.

The event attracted 24 pairs, the largest turn out since the county starting organising bridge lunches, and included a number of players who do not usually play in Suffolk events.

An enjoyable two course lunch with wine served as an appetiser to the bridge that followed. To see all the scores click on LUNCH

Fifty two pairs took part in the Clare Swiss Pairs at the weekend. The event was won by Alison Lloyd & Simon Stokes (centre) from Cambs & Hunts. David & Jenny Price (right) were runners-up ahead of Chris Hollingsworth & Gerry Ford (left) in third. Click on CLARE to see all the scores.
FRINTON'S HALF CENTURY
Congratulations to Frinton Bridge Club on their 50th Anniversary.  The occasion was celebrated by about 50 current and former members with a lunch at Frinton Golf Club, followed by a bridge session.  It was fitting that the bridge was won by one of the founder-members, Tony Haig-Thomas (playing with his brother, David). Results are HERE.

GOOD EFFORT BY I&K TEAM IN GARDEN CITIES TROPHY

A team from Ipswich & Kesgrave performed with great credit at the weekend in the regional finals of the Garden Cities Trophy, the EBU's inter county teams of eight competition.

The eight players - Peter Gemmell, Chris Chambers, Maria Allnutt, Debby Sutcliffe, Peter Sutcliffe, Chris Green, Malcolm Pryor and Karen Pryor - finished a very close up third behind teams from Warwick and Cambridge bridge clubs.

Unfortunately only two teams from each of the four regional finals make it through to the final of the competition. To see the results, click on GARDEN

CHEERS, MIKE

ANALYSIS

When Suffolk captain Rick Hanley and his partner missed a slam, he decided to email US expert Marty Bergen and - for $1 a minute - seek his opinion.

How did he rate my bidding?

Within a couple of hours, I discovered the answer.

He didn't rate it all! Nor did he rate my partner's bidding as being much better.
