Bridge Problems


Please click on the second box down on the left hand menu to find some fascinating bridge problems to tease you.

Some of the problems are from long ago.  They are amusing  - however they do make you think about some fundamental card play techniques.

Doris Moss

It is with great sadness that we are reporting the passing away of Doris Moss on Wednesday 5th May. Doris was aged 99.

Doris was a keen member of the the club who joined in the 1980s with her husband David.  Doris stopped playing just before we moved to Moulton Park.  Doris was a partner of Margaret Bryant and between them they had some lively discussions.

Doris was very active - walking to the club from her home in Birchfield Road - and that was after walking into town to help regularly at the Hope Centre in Bailiff Street to help the "old folk" as she called them, despite being in her 80s and 90s.

Amazingly Doris was on the last ship out in the early 40s when Ypres was evacuated after the invasion. She said she would never go on a ship again having travelled up the North Sea and around Scotland in a storm.  Then after that Doris worked in Bletchley Park during the war and was sworn to secrecy!

We believe Doris and David first lived in Bedford and then moved to Northampton.

Our deepest sympathy goes to her family.

Further information on funeral arrangements will be added when known.

On 12th October we restarted our Tuesday morning sessions between 10-00am to noon.

This is aimed at those who want to get into bridge without the competitive element of pairs and also those who want a relaxed game and a chat. Good to have a chat and a cup of tea and biscuit.

A rota of experienced players will be on hand to give advice if required - but only if asked.

Cost £3 - no partner required. 

Please spread the news of this offer to friends who want to get into bridge.

Difficulty Joining RealBridge

If you sometimes have connection issues joining an on on line session you can always log in say 20 minute beforehand to check your computer has connected okay - you can then stayed logged in, leave the screen and have a cup of tea etc.

If you leave logging in to the last minute and you have problems it makes life more difficult for partner and the director setting up the movement (panic and phone calls) .  There are no issues with logging in early and walking away from your screen and returning to the table a few minutes before play starts..
