♠  ♥ ♦ ♣ ♠  ♥ ♦ ♣ ♠  ♥ ♦ ♣ ♠  ♥ ♦ 

Bridge (on BBO) followed by a Zoom Social. Open to all Club members and regular players at our virtual club.  Even if you don’t play on BBO, we’d particularly love to see you at the after-game festivities on Zoom. There will be PRIZES, though this year please bring your own wine, beer, mince pies, paper hats, party poppers and so on.  

The bridge will be an individual competition.Everyone playing bridge will partner a robot, though robots are banned from the party and will not be eligible for prizes. Table money will be $2 ($1.75 to register and an extra 25 cents for your robot).  

Robots play standard American - click here for their convention card robot_CC.pdf. It is just a fun game; don't take it too seriously! If you are a systems fiend, here is more information on what robots do: BBO Robots.pdf. Robots may be less than human, but they are generally polite and do not shout at their partners. Their standard of play is comparable to an average club player.

Need to know:  To join the party, please let us know as soon as possible  - Click Here - so we can send you a Zoom invitation, and saying whether you will also play. Don’t forget that, as always, players can register on BBO up to 2 hours before the game.

Programme

6.45 pm – 8.50/8.55pm Bridge (18 boards)

9.00 pm – Zoom party opens, Raise a glass to friends and a short Christmas quiz

9.15 pm – Hands from the game will drop in your mail inbox for discussion/debate/dissing the robots….

9.45 pm – Prize winners (bridge and quiz) announced

Party stays open as long as there are guests!

Prizes for 1st and 2nd bridge winners;  highest scoring slam;  biggest losing score on a board;  and for the quiz winner.

Beat the Covid Blues - Play Online

We have regrettably had to suspend our Bridge at the club until further notice, moving to playing online since March 2020.  You might like to join our friendly and competitive virtual EBU club on Bridge Base Online at 7:30 p.m. every Wednesday.  First time visitors and non-members are welcome.

If you don’t have a BBO account, you can open one quickly and easily. Just go to

www.bridgebase.com, register and purchase some BBO dollars.

If you are playing with us for the first time OR wish to use our partner finding service, click here

On the day, about 7.15 pm, register for the game:

Log into the BBO website. In the 'Competitive' section, 'All Tournaments', search for 'LDBC'. 

The following may be helpful as a gentle introduction to playing online:

CANCELLED Dorothy Shanahan Championship Pairs 2020

With apologies... we have had to cancel the event this year.  We hope to run the event - in the usual face to face format - next year, and we look forward to seeing you all at the club before too long.

 

 

Bridge in Central London
Bridge in Central London

The London Duplicate Bridge Club is one of the oldest bridge clubs in central London.

We play every Wednesday evening (except some in late December and early January) at the Civil Service Club, Great Scotland Yard, London SW1A 2HJ. Play starts at 7:30 p.m. The Civil Service Club is very convenient for all forms of public transport, being just yards from Trafalgar Square and Charing Cross station.

Tel: Nigel Bruce 020 7622 6436

Email: Club Secretary

Details about the LDBC

If you want to come along one Wednesday you might like to call Nigel Bruce on 020 7622 6436 who will arrange for your name to be put on our guest list. Otherwise, why not just turn up and see us. At present we do not operate a rota list for partners, but partners are always available if you come alone. There are usually players in the downstairs bar from 7:00 p.m. - the door staff will point us out. Introduce yourself - we look forward to seeing you ....

We are keen to welcome new members of all standards (except absolute beginners) to our friendly sociable evenings. Knowledge of duplicate, bidding boxes, etc. is expected, but we do have some relatively inexperienced members. It is not necessary to be a member of the Civil Service Club to play or enjoy its facilities on a Wednesday when joining us. The Civil Service Club has an excellent bar offering a full range of drinks at very reasonable prices. There is also a snack-bar for those who want something to eat before the game.
