ONLINE BRIDGE IS THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN...AT STANSFIELD’S ‘VIRTUAL’ BRIDGE CLUB
CLUB'S FLAGSHIP EVENT

 

2019 winners: Dave Walker & Sue Smith

Stansfield Handicap Pairs online this year

The club's flagship competition takes place on Sunday 25 October (11am start) - and for obvious reasons it will be on Bridge Base Online.

The event, which is open to players across Suffolk and beyond, will comprise 32 boards with a lunch break half way through (starting at c1.10pm). To enter click on STANSFIELD and complete the online entry form.

The Handicap Pairs is unlike other competitons because players are handicapped according to their EBU NGS rating - thereby offering everyone an equal chance of success. It will take place instead of the usual Suffolk Pairs held most Sunday evenings. The entry fee will be BBO$3, payable on the day.

THURSDAY: 17 TABLES
THURSDAY: 17 TABLES

An amazing night with a record turn out of 17 tables plus a hissy fit by BBO half way through proceedings which resulted in a dozen players being dispatched into the internet wilderness for five minutes. And for good measure, a brilliant piece of computer coding by the club's technical department (aka Paddy) worked and resulted in a smooth half time break.

When the dust settled, some familair names headed the leaderboard, with Celia & John finishing a knat's whisker ahead of Joan & Keith, and Dave & Sue in third spot.

The club's flagship competition - the Stansfield Handicap Pairs - is only a week away. Please enter now by clicking on HANDICAP PAIRS

Don't miss the next action on Tuesday (4pm start).

TUESDAY: 13 TABLES
TUESDAY: 13 TABLES

An eventful afternoon with the half-time break extending much longer than usual. The good news is that the technical issue* which caused the problem has been resolved!

John & Caro won with a cracking 70%+ score, from a new parternship of Chris & Christine, with Helen & David in third spot.

* Being able to stipulate the length of a break will be critical for the Stansfield Handicap Pairs on 25 October (don't forget to enter!) when there will be a 1 hour break between two sessions - hence today's trial run which has enabled us to find out how to do it (we think). Thank you for your patience today - and a huge thank you to Paddy who was in the control tower.

Next action on Thursday (7pm)

REMINDER RE SELF-ALERTING: There have been one or two instances of players not self-alerting conventional bids or their opening NT range. Please self-alert all bids where required, even if you have provided oppnents with a synopsis of your system.
