Sad News

We have just received the sad news of the passing of Percy Van Iperen, who died early on Thursday morning.

He had been very poorly for several months and was admitted to the hospital recently.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gretha and her family at this difficult time.

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)

The first taster sessions on Real Bridge seem to have been well received and as such we intend to run regular full tournaments on Real Bridge. The plan is to have 2 weekly events on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 2:30pm. We will also look to hold a few other one off events on other days. At the end of March we will review the situation again.

Declarer Play

contract 3NT lead K  on which W discards 2♠ , can you make against best defence? 

You need 3 club tricks to make 9 and must establish these without allowing W on lead. Suppose you cross to one of dummy's entries and lead a club. East may contribute the Jack, aiming to create a club entry to the West hand. You win with the Queen but can no longer make the contract. If you cash the A♣ East will throw the King under it. If instead you use dummy's remaining entry to lead towards the Ace ♣ (planning to duck if East plays the K♣ ) you will have no entry to the 13th club. The solution is to CASH the A♣ from hand. It makes no difference which honour E unblocks. You then cross to dummy and lead towards the Queen, ducking if East plays an honour.
