WHO WILL WIN THE 'CLARET JUG'?

At first glance, you could be forgiven for thinking this is the treasured 'claret jug' which is presented to the winner of the Open golf championship every year.

In fact, it is the new Bushby-Morcombe trophy, named after the two Suffolk members who did so much to get online bridge going during the pandemic, which will go to the winners of the online Sunday Pairs competition.

Currently, it is very close at the top of the leaderboard, with Andrew Moore & Tony Philpott just ahead of Helen Mason & David Mathews and Malcolm & Karen Pryor in third spot. The competition runs until the end of March. Click on CLARET to see the current table.

BAH HUMBUG WINNERS
BAH HUMBUG WINNERS

An online version of the Bah Humbug Pairs - complete with a stream of Christmas cracker 'jokes' - helped raise the spirits of bridge players around the county on Sunday.

The event attracted 42 pairs and the size of the field meant the number of prizes was doubled for what is intended to be one of Suffolk's more light hearted occasions.

The overall winners of the North-South section were Cathy Rowland & Din Gudka (top left) while May Li & John Gan (bottom left) topped the EW section.

Just as important, there were Handicap prizes for each section, based on a partnership's EBU NGS ratings.

Barbara & Geoff Marcoolyn (bottom right) were the top NS Handicap pair while Hugh & Jen Godfrey (top right) headed the EW group.

Click on SCORES to see the results (and then click on Handicap tab to see Hcp scores).

PLAYING BRIDGE ONLINE
PLAYING BRIDGE ONLINE

Never played bridge on-line - and intimidated by what's involved? Don't be!

An A-B-C guide to playing bridge at BridgeBaseOnline (BBO) which covers the most basic points - how to get started, how to join a game - has been created for Suffolk Bridge by Peter Bushby, and even includes some very fancy film clips.

The big advantage of playing on BBO is that you can partner a real person (for example, your regular partner) - rather than a robot - and it's free.

So with no prospect of any club bridge for at least three months and probably longer don't feel left out...just click on HOW TO PLAY BRIDGE ON LINE.

In addition to the basics, the comprehensive guide also shows how you can enter Suffolk's regular Sunday evening duplicate, how to play a match between two teams of four, and much more besides.

The EBU has also produced a guide on how to play on BBO. Click on EBU to see.

Daily five board competiton for FunBridge players in Suffolk
