St. Luke's & The Thursday Club - Private Duplicate.
We are running 3 private Duplicates per week on Bridge Club Live, under the name St. Lukes Bridge Club. The Results for all 3 duplicates will be shown on the this website, and on the Thursday club website.
Only members of St. Luke's Bridge Club and the Tuesday / Thursday Bridge Club will be allowed to play in the three Duplicates.
Only pairs and individuals invited by a committee member of either club will be allowed to play as a visitor.
If you want to play with someone who is not a member of either club then either David Joannides or David Berwitz must be informed before you arrive to play.
Please remember that everyone who wants to play in these duplicates must be a full member of B.C.L. You must also be affiliated to St Luke's Bridge Club on the B.C.L. site. If you are not, the computer will not recognise you, and you and your partner will not play in the duplicate
The times and days of each duplicate are as follows: Please read this very carefully as some times have changed. Please take time to read and confirm the new timings.
Remember the Door opening and Tourney to start playing times are not the same thing.
The Door Code will identify the correct room for our duplicate.
Different Bridge Clubs will be starting their duplcates at the same time,
so it is very important that you enter the correct room.
Monday Afternoon: Door Code STLUKE 1-D-2.
The Door to our private room opens at 1.00pm.
The Duplicate starts 30 mins later at 1.30pm sharp.
20 boards will be played. The last board must be completed by 5.45pm. But hopefully long before.
Thursday Evening: This takes place on Real Bridge
The Door to our private room opens at 6.30pm.
The Duplicate starts 30 mins later at 7.00pm sharp.
20 boards will be played. The last board must be completed by 10.45pm. But hopefully long before.
Friday Morning: This takes place on Real Bridge
The Door to our private room opens at 9.30am.
The Duplicate starts 30 mins later at 10.00am sharp.
16 boards will be played. The last board must be completed by 12.45pm. But hopefully long before.
You will be able to leave the duplicate as soon as you have completed playing your 16th board on Friday or your 20th board on Monday and Thursday.
You have 30 minutes to enter the room, find your partner, get seated, and confirm your S.S.D. If you do not have this completed before the start time, you will not play in duplicate. It's very important that you arrive at least 20 minutes before the duplicate start time so that the director can ensure everyone has a partner and that there are no half tables.
If you arrive later than 20 minutes before the duplicate start time, the Director has the right to refuse you entry. Especially if he has already brought in the reserve pair to ensure no half table. If the Director does let you join the movement, then you will become the half table and if no other pair joins you will not play.
For the first month there will be no table money required to play in any of these duplicates.
This is a very exciting development for all members of St. Luke's and The Thursday Club
It will enable the membership of both clubs to enjoy a duplicate where you only play against people that you know.
A lot of hard work has been put in to set up this Private Duplicate so please support it by playing in it when you can.
