Welcome to Mayfield Duplicate Bridge Club
Hand of the week

A lesson for the defence on this hand from last night. E led 9D and W took 2 diamond tricks and switched to a trump. Declarer ruffed his third D in dummy and returned to hand in trumps to lead a spade to the K, E ducking.

Declarer now led a spade from dummy and W won the Q but was endplayed to give a ruff and discard or lead away from KC.

W should jettison QS under the K on the first round of the suit. It can never cost, as if declarer has AS or JS, then E will win the defence's spade trick to lead a club through dummy.

The contract was -1 but should go two down.

4 Tables

June 11h - We have four tables. Any further pairs will be most welcome


Each week we send out an email asking players to indicate if they are playing next Tuesday. This was started after the pandemic when sometimes we didn't get four tables, which was seen as the minimum number needed for a proper duplicate movement.

As attendance has improved slightly, we have rarely failed to reach that four table minimum, so we have stopped sending the confirmation email. However I shall update this page each week on Monday or Tuesday to confirm that we have reached the four table minimum.
