Bridge Clubs of Thanet KO Competition - Saturday 6th May

The Bridge Clubs of Thanet Knock-Out Pairs is being played at 12 Noon on Saturday 6th May at the Portland Centre, Hopeville Avenue, Broadstairs CT10 2TR.

 Come and have fun and get your names on the Thanet Cup or Broadstairs Bowl. There will also be other prizes for best non-expert and the biggest winning margin in any match.

This event is targeted at the ordinary club player. The format is one that means that there can be giant-killings. Could you be this year's David slaying Goliath?
Whilst this will be a properly run event with EBU Blue Master Points, we want to give you a gentle and fun introduction to Tournament Bridge, and is ideal for any club member of any ability. The cost is just £9 per player including free tea, coffee and soft drinks. Refreshments are available to purchase, or bring your own, there will be a number of intervals between the rounds to enjoy them. Click Here for details and application form .

Chicago Pairs 2017

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. 24 hands are played, so play takes 3 hours or less

The club, which is EBU registered, meets at 6.45pm on Mondays and Thursdays every week for regular pairs competitions. Our Wednesday and Friday afternoon sessions start at 1.45pm.  We hold social events including two dinners each year.

There should be about 600 pairs with 350 EBU MPs for Top place, down to 24 MPs for 200th place.

In addition the Top Pair on each day will receive a subsidy of $1,200 for each player, plus free accommodation, to play in the Beijing, China Final for a $20,000 Top Prize.
