Tournament for Bart 

Saturday 6th November we held a fundraising tournament for our youngest member Bart who requires special equipment following his serious accident earlier this year.

36 members went into battle during the tournament including Bart who had permission to leave the specialist unit in Toledo to return to Javea for the weekend.

45 members and their partners enjoyed an excellent supper prepared by Carol, Anne & Pat with help from Marianne & Nellie.

Our grateful thanks to everyone who sponsored the raffle and everyone who helped us raise an amazing €1780 towards the purchase of the necessary equipment.

Coughs and Sneezes?

If you are feeling unwell please stay at home and think of others.

This tennis star uses bridge games as opportunities for relaxation. When she travels, she likes to find nearby bridge clubs and join in. She once said, 'No matter where I go, I can always make new friends at the bridge table'

She wrote the introduction to Audrey Grant's 'The club series, Introduction to Bridge!' She's also teamed up with another famous player in an email course designed to help teach bridge to newcomers (bonus point for this player too)

Declarer Play

Contract 6♠ W leads K 

This hand arose in a round of the Crockfield cup (England team championships). Both declarers arrived in 6♠ and the first 3 tricks were the same in both rooms ruffing and drawing trumps. One then cashed A♣  A and K♣ and when the clubs didn't break resigned himself to one down. 

The second declarer Harrison-Gray, was a bit more thoughtful and played a diamond to his A, ruffed a low heart and cashed 2 top clubs before playing the K NOW he played the QH and discarded his last diamond forcing W to concede a ruff and discard enabling him to make his contract on a cross ruff.
