Chicago Pairs 2018

Round 1 Pairs should contact the first named other Pair with the same letter and agree a date, time and venue to play each other in a relaxed atmosphere. Pairs with (H) next to their names are the Host Pair, but this can be revised to allow for player mobility or travel needs. Hosts are only required to have a suitable table and seating for play, and offer tea and biscuits during a comfort break.

The only play needs are 2 packs of cards and 2 score cards. Bidding boxes are not essential, but can be used if available. Any needs can be borrowed from the Club, by arrangement.

Play is as normal during club play, Vulnerability as per Scorecard, Dealer rotates Hand 1 North, Hand 2 East etc, and Scoring per Hand as normal allowing for vulnerability. Cards are shuffled and cut before each Deal. With at least 24 hands played, play should take 3 hours or less.

2018 Club Championship - Blue Master Points

The EBU have finally approved a Club Pairs Championship for Club Members only, attracting Blue Master Points. The Championship will include all full Club sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, plus any approved sessions on other days.

The Championship will be in the form of a Ladder of the total Master Points each Pair have been awarded during the full year at Club level, and any Individual will ranked for each Pair they have been a member of. If you have 3 partners, you will be listed 3 times, and can be awarded Blue Master Points for each Pair you are in.

Please look at the current Year to Date Championship Ladder in Competitions on the left hand side.

Find a Partner

 If you know you will need a partner call and leave a message, or text Peter Webster on 07710 419241, or email him on prwebster@hotmail.co.ukPlease leave contact details, dates, and any preferences.  He will co-ordinate the service, keeping a list for all partner requests for upcoming sessions, and notify you if a suitable partner is available.

Please try to register your partner requests at least 24 hours in advance, as on-the-day requests may be difficult to match.

If anybody does not regularly play a particular session, but is happy to consider occasional games with those seeking a partner at short notice, please register an interest.

Monday Afternoon Supervised Play Sessions

On Monday afternoons at 1:45, Paul Gibbons is running Supervised Play sessions.

These sessions are aimed at players who want to practice their Bridge skills, and to be able to discuss their hands, correct plays, and solve problems etc. in a relaxed atmosphere. Table money £3, including refreshments.

If you don't have a partner, just come on your own, or contact the Partnering Service who should be able to match you up.

As Supervised Play, there will be no EBU Master Points awarded.
