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 afternoons, playing Competitive Duplicate.

Presently the Monday and Wednesday sessions are suspended, we hope to restart the Wednesday sessions on February 3rd.

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

How do you make 12 tricks on a Heart lead?

Small Heart from North taken by the Ace in dummy.

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.
