New Thursday Morning Online Duplicate

We have added a seventh online weekly game.  This is on Thursday mornings at 10.00am.  This is to provide online bridge for Kit Jackson's Balham players at the game time they are used to, but it is not limited and is open to all, The idea is with Kit's blessing to provide a bigger and more attractive game  Aa always single players are paired up and everyone is guaranteed a game. The game will be charged at one Game Credit in the usual way. If you have credit with Kit this will be honoured.  Enquiries are welcome: email or phone or text 07792 715517.  

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.

New for 2021 - Partner Finder Service
