Jávea Bridge Club
Bulletin

Good morning,

We have been advised to close our club for 2 weeks by the Councillor for 

Security in Jávea then review the situation.

Hopefully she will be able to fit into her busy schedule a quick visit 

to the club when she will be able to see the protocols we have in place 

& support our reopening on Wednesday 11th November.

This of course will depend upon the events that occur in the next fortnight but I am very hopeful.

 

On behalf of the Committee I would like to thank you all for your 

continued support over the last 4 months and look forward to seeing 

everyone back in the club before too long.

Best wishes,

Pat

Trivia

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)

Jack of Hearts

The Jack of Hearts is the last card we will be featuring in this series. As a card he isn't very exciting but the name has been used for more adventurous stories. 

He is a fictional superhero in the Marvel comics called Jack Hart, also a member of the Royal Flush Gang in DC Comics.

There was a British crime drama series in 1999 Jack of Hearts (TV series) and the title of various plays and films; an Australian comedy play by David Williamson a 1986 Canadian short film based on a story by Isabel Huggan, a 1999 U.S. film directed by Serge Rodnunsky and starring Nick Mancuso and a 1919 American short Western film directed by B.

Reading your opponents' cards is one of the greatest jobs of Bridge. It's supposed to be done by making inferences and not by direct observation! So for your own sake and to avoid embarrassing your opponents and ruining the hand for them. 

Hold your cards up!

Declarer Play

4♠ lead A♣ and continues with K♣ 

If you ruff with the 2♠ you will be unable to redeem your error. Ruff with the 6♠ and play A♠ revealing the position. 

3 rounds of diamonds, 3 rounds of hearts.

Play it again and you can analyse all the variations and also see that West's lead of A♣ should on best defence beat the contract, but continuing with the K♣ is a mistake and gives declarer they chance to make.
