The University of Manchester Bridge Club are hosting another event at Manchester Bridge Club and they would like to welcome any bridge players who would like to support their University Bridge Club to come along and play at these events.
This event, on Thursday 13th December (a 7.30 pm start), is Crazy Pairs. This is a casual event where the rules of bridge are mixed up while playing. Sounds simple? Try : bidding a contract without being able to bid black suits, bidding a contract only to be told you're in a higher or lower contract or even in a different suit, playing a contract out but anti-clockwise. Sounds interesting? Give it a go! All abilities welcome.
