Site Info

A couple of tips.

  • If you want to know what has changed without having to trawl through all of it, the pages with any recent updates are listed in a box on the left of the Home Page.
  • This site is mobile friendly, so if you can't wait to get home and check out the results on a computer, you can see the whole site on your phone or tablet browser. It should display properly, but if it doesn't, click 'Switch to Mobile' on the left hand side of the Home Page.  Incidentally there are (paid) IOS and Android apps available for Bridgewebs. They are handy if you just want to review the results and hands.

Player Seating

If you look at the bottom of the ranking page for all of the results, you will see your personal performance in the different positions for that session.  You can see these in graphical format if you click on Personal Analysis in the Results Section.  However for these results to be accurate you need to do the following:-

For Mitchell movements, where there are one or more arrow switches - sit in your normal positions and rotate the board clockwise. This will mean that N becomes W, S becomes E, E becomes N and W becomes S.

For Howell movements you should either sit N and E or S and W. This rule also applies when we occasionally play that odd Hesitation Mitchell!

  • Afternoon Session  2 p.m. to 5 p.m.       Listening to the opponents bidding – to find some well-reasoned opening leads; Fourth Suit Forcing – a great convention which is so much more than a stopper-ask.

Videos for Loan
Videos for Loan

The club has aquired a number of training DVDs by Bernard Magee (paid for by a donation to the club) which, in my 'umble opinion, are worth watching no matter how good you think you are!

They are free to borrow for up to 3 weeks, but you need to sign for them and leave a £10 refundable deposit.
