Welcome to P3A Bridge Club
Welcome

Welcome to the Paphos 3rd Age Bridge Club website.

We normally run two sessions a week: 

Improvers bridge on Monday mornings, playing both Chicago and Gentle Duplicate, and

Intermediate bridge on Wednesday mornings, playing Competitive Duplicate.

After a long Covid shutdown, live bridge re-starts on Monday 7 June. 

The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and visitors are most welcome, although you must arrive with a partner. 

 

Play Problem

How do you make 12 tricks on a Heart lead?

Small Heart from North taken by the Ace in dummy.

You can see 2 Spades, 2 Hearts and a Diamond.

You have to find 7 tricks from the Clubs.

Small Spade to the King and back to the Ace.

Another Spade, ruffed by South with the 8, over-ruffed with the 9 of Clubs.

Heart King, discarding a Diamond from dummy.

Now a Diamond to the Ace and another Diamond, taken by South's Queen - no room to lose any more....

South plays a Club to 5, Queen and King.

Now another Spade, ruffed with the 10, over-ruffed with the Ace.

Small Diamond, ruffed with the 2 of Clubs.

Jack of Clubs takes out the remaining trump and then dummy is good.

12 tricks and small slam made.
