Welcome to St. Bees and District Bridge Club
Bridge Returns After COVID Suspension

It's a pleasure to report that the long-awaited restart of F2F bridge at St Bees and District Bridge Club took place at Moresby Rugby Club on Wednesday 2nd March 2022. 4 tables enjoyed the new venue and Harriet's cakes. Our novices and beginners were given a warm welcome.

We look forward to seeing more of our members returning to live bridge on Wednesdays at 6.30pm for a punctual start at 6.45pm. Players of all standards are welcome. Refreshments will be available. See below for information about COVID precautions.

Come and Join Us
Come and Join Us

St. Bees is a small EBU-affiliated club with a very friendly atmosphere . We actually meet not at St Bees but nearby at Moresby Parks , at the Rugby Club ; our members mainly come from Whitehaven , St Bees and the smaller villages to the south.
Despite our rural Cumbrian location , we're still in touch with the modern world : we use Duplimate-dealt boards and the BridgeMates II wireless scoring system .
If  you're visiting the area and would like a game , we should be happy to welcome you ; if you don't have a partner , you need to contact the secretary in advance , and he'll do his best to find you one .
You can find out more details about us by clicking on 'Information' in the menu on the left .

Inter Club Teams of 8

UPDATE ICT8 West Coast were pipped at the post by their final round opponents, Keswick, who thus won the competition by a narrow margin. Better luck next time, though winning 11 straight matches from October 2020 was no mean feat. Well done to all our team members.

 

RESULT! Harriet and Phil, Terry and Paul won the Westmorland Teams League Division 1 title this session. Well done all of you 🏆

Have you tried 'Play It Again' ?

Have you tried using the brilliant 'Play It Again' feature on our results chart. Just click on the 'Play it again' button, which you'll find between the deal display and the results display on the 'Scorecards' screen. It brings up a display of the full deal, makeable contracts, etc, and enables you to play through the whole hand again - a particularly helpful feature is that when play starts each playable card has a number on it (adjusted after each trick if necessary) which indicates how many tricks your side can make if you play that card, so that if you simply couldn't see how anyone could make more tricks in a contract than you did, you can trace the sequence(s) producing that result. It's pretty intuitive to use, but there's a Help button if needed to explain any of the features, so why not give it a go, if you haven't already?

An excellent feature (maybe a bit more complex) in 'Play it again' is the Results Analysis - which amongst other things compares your performance on any deal, or overall, to the optimum predicted by double dummy analysis.

NB The first time you use 'Play It Again', you will have to follow a simple procedure to download the free software (it is actually John Goacher's Bridge Solver Online, which itself utilises Bo Haglund's double dummy solver) ; subsequently, as soon as you click on 'Play it again' you're into the program and ready to go.

 

 

Vu-Bridge

If you click on the Vu-Bridge link to the menu on the left you can choose to play a practice hand from the Vu-Bridge site under the heading of either 'Beginner's Corner' or 'Hand of the Week' - entertaining and informative.

Message Board

I hope that this may be useful for anyone looking for a partner for a particular date , since the majority of our members now have internet access ; but you can also use it to make comments or engage in discussion on any club-related matters . It's very simple to use - no need to log in, so handier than the Members Only section ; just remember that whatever you write can be read by anyone ...

About the 'Members Only' section

This is a password-protected area ; you gain access in the first place by using the club's default password (ask the Secretary) which you then change to a password of your own choice .
