NIGEL GUTHRIE

We are sad to report that Nigel Guthrie passed away on 29 August 2022. Many members will remember Nigel as a regular player at Reading Bridge Club and in B&BCBA and EBU events until his return to Scotland in about 2010. He played in the League of 8 Reading A team with Stuart Maurice and in the B&BCBA Tollemache Team. He was Double Dummy compiler for Bridge Plus magazine. He was 11 times a winner of the B&BCBA County Teams, County Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Mens' Pairs, Swiss Pairs, Committee Cup, Waller Bowl and Jarrett Cup, about half of which were in partnership with David Barnes. Nigel will be missed by his many bridge partners and other friends. A longer tribute by former B&BCBA partner Paul Gipson can be found at:  https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/nigel-guthrie-rip/

SATURDAY OPEN ON-LINE PAIRS - 10th April 2021
EVENT PARTICULARS

AFTER MUCH CONSIDERATION WE HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL THIS EVENT DUE TO THE LACK OF ENTRIES 

These events will usually be a standard BBO Pairs event playing between 20 and 24 boards with 2 board rounds (although this might change depending on the number of entries).  

For our main County events – 8 minutes per board - Restricted to Level 4 Conventions
The event will cost  3 BBOper person and will qualify for Masterpoints and NGS as normal.

In order for you to play in one of our events we need your BBO username in advance. If this is the first time you have played in one of our on-line events please submit your entry information via our website by 10.00 am on the day of the event. No late entries can be accepted.   

Although it isn't necessary, it would help us to gauge numbers if all participants could register their interest to play via our website (even if they have played in one of our events before).  If we don't receive enough entries via our website to make the event enjoyable we may have to take the decision to cancel it.

The tournament name to search for on BBO for all these events will be "Berks and Bucks".   

On the day of the event, you can log in to register with your partner from 12.30 p.m.  We suggest (especially the first time you play in one of our events) that you register by 2 p.m.at the latest, so any registering probems can be ironed out well before the event starts. 

To avoid delays in the tournament start time, we ask all players to be logged into BBO and registered for the events by 2.20 p.m. on the day of the event. 

Please click on the  "How to Play on BBO Guide" on our homepage if this is your first time and you are unsure how to register for events.
