Welcome to First For Bridge
Welcome to the First for Bridge BridgeWebs site

This is the First for Bridge BridgeWebs site which is used by our directors and hosts to post results from the bridge sessions on our holidays.

Our bridge holidays are licensed by the English Bridge Union (EBU) with Masterpoints awarded, duplimated boards used and hand records provided.

Our holidays are accompanied by qualified Directors who provide interesting seminars as well as experienced hosts who look after our guests in and out of the bridge room and ensure that all guests have a playing partner. Single travellers are catered for and encouraged.

Changes to Online Games

After Sunday the 4th April 2021 We will just be hosting games on a Wednesday and Friday Afternoons.

This is due to there now being far more Club and County Games now on offer that has caused the entries to drop.

We will now be concentrating our Efforts in getting our Holiday Programmes back up and running, which we hope to see you on very Soon.

Hand of the Day Wednesday 3rd March 2021

On hand 12 West opened a weak 2♠ and East/West ended up in 4♠.
North led the  A and had to decide what to do next. North switched to
a trump.

 

That has to be wrong. Look at it this way. You can see that having cashed the  A there are 12 tricks left. Which cards are going to take them? Declarer has 6 spades. Dummy has 5 clubs and the  A.

That makes 12. North either has to continue with diamonds and try to cash as many as possible or switch to a heart. Look at the clubs in dummy? It is obvious that given time declarer will draw trumps and then run clubs, discarding all his losers. Switching to a trump is just giving up. When declarer has a long suit in dummy it is frequently necessary to take what you can quickly before it runs away on the long suit.

North cant necessarily tell whether your extra tricks are in hearts or diamonds but by switching to a trump North ensures that wherever they are you will never make them.
