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)

We received the message below from Maaike following JBC’s Tournament for Bart last month. Again, many thanks to all those who participated in the tournament, bought raffle tickets and helped out on a very successful day in raising nearly 1,800 euros.  A big thank you to all the sponsors who donated the super raffle prizes.


Dear members,

Bart and I were touched to the heart by ‘his’ tournament, your reception of him and generous support. Given the lack of subsidies in Spain, your contributions will help make his life better by providing a good bed or wheelchair or anything that increase the quality of his life. THANK YOU!

 Maaike Ellen Onkenhout

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.
