Welcome to Beaumont Bridge Club
WHILE WE'RE WAITING-TRY THIS- HAND NO. 20

Thurs 2nd July.

Previous hand  in 'Practice Hands'

This is a hand we played in the house the other night.

Due to some strange bidding South got into 6D.

West led the K.

How did South do?

South won the Heart with the Ace and played two rounds of Diamonds ending in his hand. He played the J♠, covered by West with the K♠ and taken on the table with the A♠. 

South continued with the Q♠ and 10♠ discarding two Clubs from his hand and then played the 8♠, covered by East with the 9♠ and ruffed by Declarer. 

He returned to the table with a Diamond and played off the 7♠ discarding a Heart.

He lost a Club to the Ace and could ruff his last Heart on the table, losing only a Club!

BRIDGE SUSPENDED

The Committee has decide that the responsible action is to suspend our Wednesday game indefinitely. The President and Committee wishes all members the best, look after yourselves and follow the HSE protocols. We will be back to the baize tables as soon as possible!

President's Prize and Dinner POSTPONED

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus the committee have decided that the most sensible approach is to cancel the President's Prize and Dinner due for the 18th and 25th of this month. They will be rearranged for a more suitable date. 

Charity Night

What a great turnout for the Charity Night? 15 full tables. Congrats to all for raising over €550 for our charities:- Pieta House and the Capuchin Day Centre.

Some details about our Club

The Beaumont Bridge Club is affiliated to the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland (CBAI). Our club night is held on a Wednesday evening. We play in the Donnycarney Social Centre. The entrance is at the back of the car park for Donnycarney Church (see main picture). There is ample car parking available. (See also - Information "How to find us").

We start at 7.15pm and finish up between 10.15 and 10.30pm. We provide a good friendly game and all standards are welcome and encouraged. To facilitate this we apply a handicap system to the weekly scores, although master points are awarded on pre-handicap scores. Weekly table money is only €4 and annual subscription is just €30.

We have just begun to use Bridgemates to score at the table, so results are available shortly after play has finished.

Do join us! Visitors are very welcome.
