New Venue For Tuesday Evening Duplicate
New Venue For Tuesday Evening Duplicate

Ned Paul Bridge is playing live on Tuesday evenings at the new London Mindsports Centre 'LMC' in Hammersmith.  From January 2022 we will be playing every Tuesday from Tuesday Jnauary 4th. starting at 7.15pm.  Thie game is run in the name of New Chiswick Bridge Club and I am pleased to say many of the NCBC players have made the transition from Chiswick Tennis Club and are happy with the bigger attendance we are now getting.    Find the Mindsports Centre at 21-23 Dalling Road, Hammersmith, W6 0JD.  Nearest tube Ravenscourt Park (3 minutes, but stairs) or many Hammersmith buses (alight at Ravenscourt Park Station stop in King Street).  Street parking is possible but allow time.  We play bridge on the ground floor with level access.  There is a licensed bar for drinks, tea/coffee, and light meals, sandwiches and snacks.

Please note the 'senior' bridge client of the LMC is Young Chelsea BC.  Our game is independently organised and not associated with YCBC.  We aim for our game to be a welcoming social game for ALL players, intermediate and above.  New players are always welcome and single players will always get a game.   SUMMER CLOSURE:  Weekly Live Duplicates at 'The Mindsports' resume on Tuesday September 6th - make a note of the date!

 

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.
