Release 2.19o
Coming out of Lockdown

We are gradually moving towards first face-to-face bridge. We have restarted weekly duplicate tournaments at the London Mindsports Centre, Hammersmith on Tuesday evenings; at Kingston Bridge Club on Thursday evenings; and at the Ruff Club in Camden (Friday evenings.

Daytime bridge on Tuesday afternoons at Chiswick Tennis Club (2.00-4.30pm) has also restarted. In contrast, Our Lady Queen of Peace on Thursday mornings is more problematic:  we have not yet had the go ahead.  

As the picture becomes clearer individual club websites are being updated.

Even with these re-openings, all our online games will continue until further notice.

John Balson Remembered

The late John Balson died at the Princess Alice Hospice Esher in 2019. In March 2021 we ran a memorial bridge day in his name that raised a massive £5,000+ for the Hospice.

Here is a bridge story that typifies John. You deal and hold:

♠ A K Q 9 8 3
♥ A Q
♦ A 9 4 2
♣ K

You are behind in a match you need to win and the boards are running out.  You open 2♣ and partner responds 3♣, a positive response promising 8+hcp and two of the top three honours in clubs. What is your rebid and what was the late John Balson's rebid?  Fot the answer click on this link.
