Cancellation of Bridge

Due to advice from both the HSE and the CBAI, we have decided to cancel bridge this Monday 9th March and next Monday 16th March at which time we will reassess the situation.  Apologies for the inconvenience but obviously member well-being is the most important thing.

Tips
Tips

Every week we will be putting up a tip on general bridge etiquette here on the Home Page and a more detailed tip on an aspect of bidding or play on the Tips Page

This week's bidding tip is about a JUMP-SHIFT bid - details on the Tips Page

This week's general tip is about leaving the tricks won or lost on the table until BOTH sides have agreed the number of tricks made.  It is very common to see players sweep their cards up saying at the same time something like "Bid and Made - Well Done".  What do you then do if the opposition say they have made +1?  If your cards are no longer on the table in the won/lost positions then you have no choice but to give them their +1...!

Notes

This weeks bidding tip tells us when to jump a level when responding to our partner's opening bid of 1 of a suit

President's Welcome

As another bridge year  begins for Naas Trumps, I would like to welcome back both existing and new members. I especially want to thank last year's committee for all their support and hard work. As a result, we have a thriving club. And, going forward, I hope everyone has a very enjoyable year playing bridge.

Valerie Giles - President 2019/20

A huge thanks from us all to Margaret who made the Christmas Party go with a real swing.  "The 12 Days of Christmas" was a real highlight....!!
