Welcome to Unit 190
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

 

 

This year bridge players in Delaware have the privelege of representing our state and our organization at TWO prominant events.  First up is the spring Nationals in Philadelphia, Pa. running from March 7th through the 18th. Of special note Delaware's own Dave Treadwell, an ACBL Hall of Fame inductee will be honored on Thursday March 15th.

Then we host the Delaware "First State" Regional April 30th to May 6th.  We are being asked to provide volunteers for both events.  This is an opportunity for you to represent our state admirably, and give back to the bridge community. Choosing to volunteer will not interfere with your playing schedule, and in some cases may offset entry fees.

If willing to serve contact Karen Pollak (karenfaithp@gmail.com), or Kim Holm (kimrholm13@gmail.com) for more information.

NEXT UP -BLUE HEN SECTIONAL - FEBUARY 9-11, 2018
Friday 01/12/2018 Board 20 Bridge Studio

We start the new year with a lesson in preparation. On the K lead, declarer counts 11 easy tricks (6 trump,  Aces, and two ruffs)....if the trump break.  So win with the A and play the A♠, 6 ,4♠ ,7♠ .  Now what? You are short one trick and maybe two.  Clubs are the only option.  Your play!

To set up club tricks they need to be split 4-3...and you need 4 entries to dummy to enjoy the fruits of your labor.  But you can't draw a second round of trump, yet.  Start by leading to the  A . Use the entry to play the A♣ and ruff a club before losing a diamond trick.  Ruff the  return in dummy and and ruff a second club. Now you can afford to lead to dummy's K♠ and ruff the third club.  When east follows with the K♣ ruff and carefully lead a your last  for a ruff in dummy, and the cherished entry to your good clubs.  You only need one club to dispatch your last heart, even if east ruffs, making 5♠ , and all the match pointssmiley
