50 Bridge players have enjoyed a four day break at the Best Western Hotel in Tiverton.  For many players it was the first time they had played with real cards since March 2020.  The hotel staff did a wonderful job keeping us fed and watered between the bridge sessions.  The final day presented a choice of: Wimbledon mens' finals, Euro 2020, or a game of bridge!

Tiverton Bridge Break - July 2021
Tiverton Bridge Break - July 2021

Here we are in Tiverton enjoying playing bridge with real cards and bidding boxes, meeting up with old friends, and letting someone else do the cooking!  The hotel is conveniently located close to the centre of Tiverton and on our walkabouts we found this interesting building; Old Blundells School.  For those of you who have read Lorna Doone it is like stepping back in time to the 17th century when Jan Rudd was a schoolboy there.  The school was donated to the National Trust in 1954.

Hand of the Day - Tiverton

This challenge has been  set by our director Colin Simcox.  What should South bid in this situation?  East's 2Sp bid has made life very difficult; it has taken South's bid away.  Options are: 2NT, 3NT, or Pass.  This could be called the 'unexpected pass'.

Colin says: 'Pass' would be a very good call in this situation.  North will make every effort to double and East will be landed with a very tricky 2SpX contract.  When the hand is played out, the likely outcome is +500; a very good score for NS (and better than 3NT).
