JÁVEA SCHOOL OF BRIDGE AND SOCIAL CLUB - "PROBABLY THE FRIENDLIEST BRIDGE CLUB IN THE MARINA ALTA, COSTA BLANCA"
HAND OF THE WEEK - FRIDAY 1ST JULY

Most of the bidding rules (guidelines?) we learn are based on non-competitive auctions. 

          The North hand on Bd 21 is quite interesting in the sense that the rules we learn can probably change in a competitive auction. I imagine everyone will open it 1D and, if South were to reply 1S, everyone would have to consider if the hand is strong enough for a reverse bid of 2H assuming East and West both pass. My view would be “no” because of the misfit in spades. I suspect I would simply rebid 2D and hope partner can try 2H. 

 All of that is relevant to the actual hand. After 1D East bid 1S, South passed and West bid 2C. 

          Now the bidding logic is different. Bearing in mind the opposition bidding, the chances of finding partner with four or more hearts is increased. I reckon a 2H bid now shows four hearts and probably six diamonds – partners pass and the opposition bidding make it likely the bid shows distribution rather than points.  

          What do you think? We were the only pair to find the heart fit. Irrelevantly no pair found the EW club game.

WEEKLY MESSAGE - 3RD JULY

Another quiet week at the club last week with no additions to the 70% club or grand slams. It was good to welcome Pip Kay back to the club for a couple of weeks; and our WEB mistress for 3 weeks. Even more of our members have returned to their home countries - so please wherever you can support the Club.

Many thanks to Peter Hindley for providing a weekly “Hand of the Week” – all very interesting.

At last pics of the Jubilee Tournament are available on the website - "Photos Tournament" & at the clubhouse – sorry for the delay – somewhat busy!!

The committee's meeting was cancelled last week.

 

           

Bridge bookings for w/c 4th & 11th July are now open – you can either e-mail the Club or use the sign-up sheets in the Clubhouse.

 

               

The following have birthdays this coming week - happy birthday to Bernard Rourke on 4th & Maaike on the 5th July.

Janet & Audrey’s cards are for sale, in aid of "Make a Smile" at both PC Highway and the Club, and Janet’s also at Polly’s bookshop.

BRIDGE SCHEDULE
BRIDGE SCHEDULE

Jávea School of Bridge and Social Club (JSBSC) holds duplicate tournaments currently every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons commencing promptly at 2.30pm.  Doors open at 1.30pm. 

We ask that players arrive by the latest 2.15pm thus leaving the Director and Scorer sufficient time to establish and set up the movement for a prompt start at 2.30pm. We now have a dealing machine for generating computer dealt hands and also have wireless tablets using ArcScorer.

The tournaments are conducted in the English language and to EBU Guidelines.

We are a multi-national club with Spanish, British, Dutch, German, French, Belgian, Norwegian, Austrian and Swiss members - play is in English. 

We are proud of our reputation for being a friendly club and extend a very warm welcome to visitors.
