Teams of Four

The teams of four event on the Tuesday 28th January was the annual Dorothy Hughes Cup event.  Congratulations to the team comprising Pam Stacey, Gill O'Keeffe, Arnold Sandrey and David Bonello who won the right to call themselves Rhiwbina team champions for the next 12 months.

The next teams event will be on Tuesday 25th February.  If you need help getting a team together, please talk to a committee member and we will try to assist in finding others in a similar position.  As ever, we would like to have more teams participating in our monthly teams session. 

For those who have not played in a teams format before, you may not be familiar with the subtle differences in scoring.  To be successful in teams, there is less emphasis on squeezing every last trick out of each hand, which will suit some players. On the other hand there is more emphasis on making sure you are in a game contract (or a slam contract) if it is available.  On a hand where you think making a game is a 50/50 chance, go for it, because the other team almost certainly will!  And there is even a little extra psychology in estimating the capabilities of the players on the other team as part of deciding how much risk you are prepared to take on each hand.
