 Welcome to the Bethany Bridge Club website ♠  

Bethany Bridge Club meets every Tuesday morning in Bethany Baptist Church Hall, Heol Llanishen Fach, Cardiff CF14 6LF.

We start promptly at 10.30am and finish at 1pm. Each session begins with a 15 minute seminar given by Gwynn Davis, an experienced teacher and tournament player. This is followed by a relaxed session of play, with advice available for those who request it.  

The sessions are open to all. The cost is £3 per person. Free tea, coffee and biscuits are provided before the seminar from 10.15am. There are also cash prizes.

Aileen Ashmore is in charge of the kitchen and David Buttrick is our webmaster.

  Click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen to see Gwynn's list of 'Essential Bridge Conventions'. This week he looks at Doubles and explains when and how to employ them - and there is a quiz! To see his guide you should click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen and scroll down the Essential Bridge Conventions until you see 'Doubles' and then click on the link (blue text). Alternatively you can scroll down further to 'Top Tips Documents' and click on the blue link there

♠  The next Bethany Bridge Club session will be on Tuesday 18th February at 10.30am in the main hall and parking is back to normal.

  Did you know that Gwynn has written a book? (and it's not about bridge!) 'Aberystwyth Boy', is a collection of 14 short stories. Click on Aberystwyth Boy.pdf for more info. What's more, if you'd like a copy you can get it direct from Gwynn at the author's discount price (an unbelievable £5). The ideal Xmas present - all the more welcome for being a bit late! laugh

♣   We have decided that it is best for tea and coffee to be provided before the session from 10.15am rather than have a break half way through the play. This will allow more hands of Bridge to be played and relieve the pressure on the kitchen.

  If you would like to play Bridge on a Friday afternoon then North Cardiff Bridge Club meets at Bethany Church Hall every Friday from 1.15pm to 4.15pm. The cost is £2.50 per player and the sessions are run by Dorothy Evans. The North Cardiff Bridge Club website is www.northcardiff.org 

The Web Site

We are in the process of building this web site so it will (like us we hope!) improve with age.

Don't miss Gwynn's Top Tips guide to Doubles!

  The 'Hand of the Week' is Board 15 from the session on the 11th February. South can make a small slam and maybe even a grand slam but how should she bid it? Gwynn shows how.

Why are the hands not shown on the website? A few people have asked this question and I agree that it would be very nice if this could be done. Unfortunately this is only realistically possible if the hands are pre-dealt by a dealing machine linked to a computer and these machines are very expensive. We all shuffle and deal manually before play and so the hands cannot be shown on the website.

  'Top Tips'Click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen to see Gwynn's list of 'Essential Bridge Conventions'. This week he looks at Take Out and Competitive Doubles and there is a quiz for you and your favourite partner! To see his guide you should click on 'Top Tips' on the left of the screen and scroll down the Essential Bridge Conventions until you see 'Doubles' and then click on the link (blue text). Alternatively you can scroll down further to 'Top Tips Documents' and click on the blue link there.  

 Do you have any bridge queries on which you would like some advice? If so take advantage of our  'Agony Corner' and e-mail your problem to Gwynn to receive his words of wisdom. ♣
