Ipswich & Kesgrave Bridge Club

Online Thursday and Monday at 7:00pm

For present times at least, we are a Virtual Club, meeting Thursdays (club game) and Mondays (relaxed) on Bridge Base Online (BBO) at 7:00pm.

Joining instructions for online games are in the top-right-hand panel but please note, prior registering is essential. If you know of those who aren't playing, don't have partners, worried about trying to play online, please let us know. We're here to help.


While we wait for the vaccines to restore our face-to-face games take a look at our new initiative to help you solve these bridge problems that may be keeping you awake at night.

"Ask a Chris" is a new problem corner where you can pose your bridge questions to our resident gurus who will do their best to help you out.

Click on the icon to tell us all about it, or find the link on the menu on the left.


Coffee with Chris & Chris meets again on #updated automatically# and the mentoring scheme is still available to all members (contact Chris Green). Jacks and Chris are well into this term's learning groups and the Relaxed Bridge continues to attract ever more players on Mondays. Participation in the Thursday club also grows with registrations now running at around 188.

Paul Whetton now writes a weekly article, picking up on matchpoint themes … see Deal of the Week, below


Trevor's Chairman's Charity Update smiley

In these gloomy days of lockdown we were all heartened yesterday to hear that the end of the pandemic measures are in sight. For one Indian family there is also good news and some of that is down to IKBC bridge players. Before he retired last year, Trevor ran a Chairman's Charity event which raised around £400, enough to build a house for this most deserving family. Read more about the family and see the pictures that illustrate how the money many of you helped raise improved their lives. It's a beautiful story: Update on Chairman's Charity 2019.

The Daily Bridge

This is a bit of fun for our times – along the lines of those tear-off calendars which have a bridge situation on the front with the date and the answer on the back. You may recognise some of the problems – we'll give credit where it's due – and you'll certainly recognise the formats.

We aim for a wide range of difficulty, from the easy to perhaps the near-as-darned impossible, as Ipswich & Kesgrave is proud to cater for all experiences and abilities. And we won't restrict ourselves only to puzzles.

Let us know what you think, what you'd like to see. Enjoy, keep safe and stay in touch with each other.


 

Hand of the Week

Online seminars: next on Friday 2nd October

Join the two Chrises for Friday morning coffee.

We hold regular seminars presented by Chris Chambers and Chris Green. They take place on Zoom, start at 11:00am, finish at 12 noon and are free; questions are encouraged throughout.

The format is currently a discussion between Chris and Chris who try to explain the thought processes in situations from auction and play. You can review the scenarios beforehand (link also under 'Friday Seminars', left)

We are not wedded to this format and will continue to be flexible and welcome suggestions and feedback.

Invites are sent to previous attendees and those already on the '16 hands' distribution list. If you'd like to participate and join the seminar register interest via this form.
