Welcome to Easy Bridge Hertford

Easy Bridge Hertford is an independently-run service founded by Paul and Patricia Quayle in 2000.  We specialize in duplicate play and tuition at a "no fear" standard.  We offer weekly play and tuition sessions: click "Calendar" on left for duplicate sessions and "Tuition" for more details.

Play:  Mondays at 2:00 pm:  Duplicate Ladder Pairs (with "find me a partner" host service), based online via RealBridge.

Christmas Prize Quiz Hand 2021:  Congratulations to Geoff Cordingley and Sheila King.  Click lefthand menu for solution.

Calendar Events for 2022

  • Click "Calendar" in the lefthand menu for all scheduled dates to April 2022. Last session before our Christmas recess is 13th December.  We resume on Monday, 17th January.
  • We try to avoid a sitout table at most sessions, so 18 to 21 boards played by all.
  • You can join any Monday session any time from 1:30 to 1:50 pm.  In our lefthand menu or righthand tab, click "Calendar" or "RealBridge Login" to open the session link.  Please leave the lobby area no later than 1:50 pm and take your seat with partner.
  • Scores are available throughout the session and at the end, both on the RealBridge site and on this site within a few minutes. You can review hands there in detail at your leisure.
  • Please ensure that your table money account remains in credit (£4.00 per session).  Email us for payment details (do not use pre-July 2021 bank details) at or on 01992 589660. If using "Payee Verification", name "Howard Quayle" works best.
  • Note on Undo requests: If you mis-click in your bidding box (without changing your mind), you can click "request undo" provided partner has not subsequently called. Director should be called (opponents need to reject the undo request first).  If opponents allow the undo without calling the Director, any legal replacement call stands.  If you mis-click in card play, please do not request an undo as opponents are not required to allow it.
  • Monday hand post mortems:  there are many ways (perhaps too many!) to do this.  For simplicity, we recommend starting from the results page on our website after clicking either "latest result" or clicking a date from the "results" lefthand tab.  Do NOT click your partnership names in the ranking list as this will lock you into using BridgeWebs software linked to either BBO or BSOL graphics.  Instead, click the RealBridge link shown underneath the event title date, ie the 6th small tab on the right.  This will take you straight to RealBridge's own scoring analysis, ie the same graphics that you can use during play if waiting for a round to end.  Just select a board number to review, then click on the contract that your pair played to open the interactive hand display on the right where you can re-play trick-by-trick using the small forward arrow at the bottom left. Please note that the "makeable contracts" table shows maximum tricks possible, rather than makeable bidding levels.
  • IPads, MacBooks, iMacs & Lenovo laptops:  If you are using one of these devices you might be experiencing serious audio/visual etc. problems, depending on software. If so, fixes are available by emailing <>, or email us at EBH.
