Hand of the week 16: Halifax vs Aachen

Thank you to everyone who played in the match against our twin town of Aachen. Honours were evenly split with NS being won by the Aachen pair of Vladimir Belfermann and Philipp Papst, and EW being won by the Halifax pair of Betty Gabbitas and Christine Bennett with scores of 74% and 64% respectively

I am hoping to stay in touch with the clubs that we have played recently and will hopefully arrange some more challenges later in the year

Events on Bridge Base Online (BBO)

We are now holding Duplicate Pairs on BBO every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 1pm. Thanks to everyone who has supported events so far, we now have over 100 players registered on BBO.

We are also organising occasional international matches. The first two were teams matches against Kyle of Lochalsh, Scotland, and our namesake club in Halifax, Nova Scotia (go to the hand of the week archive to see the reports). The next two matches were Duplicate Pairs against Halifax, Nova Scotia and our twin town of Aachen, Germany.

Unfortunately, there is no update yet on when the club might re-open, but we hope that BBO will satisfy some of your bridge craving over the next few weeks and possibly months.
