Members' successes
Congratulations to Espen and Helen Erichsen, who won the local heat of the Portland Pairs, and came 11th in the national rankings.  Close behind were Norman Selway and his partner, Diane Rogers and Eddie Lucioni.
Duncan Cox and Bob Fordham won the local heat of the EBU Masters Pairs, and came 7th out of approximately 70 pairs nationally.
Playing in the most exalted circles English bridge can offer, Espen and Helen Erichsen, together with the couple who recently played at the club as their guests, Boye and Tonje Brogeland, posted an above average score in the recent Lederer Memorial Trophy.
If you know of any members' successes at major events, please let us know, as simply searching bridge results sites may not reveal everything.

'Bridge with Angela' 5th edition

Angela Tompson has updated her popular bridge guide for students and improvers;  this is the fifth edition following upon the success of the earlier versions. The basics are unchanged but Angela has taken the opportunity to include further conventions currently and commonly played, including Benjaminised Acol.

This book commences with the very basics of bridge and goes on to describe the essential elements of bidding. Guidance on play of the cards and defence is included followed by explanations of conventions commonly played.


The Price is £7.95 and can be purchased at the club bar or phone Angela on 01892 526716.
