Bury St Edmunds bridge club is hosting a heat of the Bill Hughes Sims Pairs on 27 June (7pm).

This is an international event with more than 50% of the entry fees returned as prizes and trophies. Booklets are given to competitors with a commentary by a top player.

The club meets at Southgate Community Centre, Caie Walk, Bury St Edmunds IP33 2PJ. Visitors are welcome and the cost will be £5.

Fifty two pairs took part in the Clare Swiss Pairs at the weekend. The event was won by Alison Lloyd & Simon Stokes (centre) from Cambs & Hunts. David & Jenny Price (right) were runners-up ahead of Chris Hollingsworth & Gerry Ford (left) in third. Click on CLARE to see all the scores.

Andy Higginson & Chris Kennedy from Colchester bridge club were the comfortable winners of the Suffolk birdge lunch at Elmswell on Wednesday.

The event attracted 24 pairs, the largest turn out since the county starting organising bridge lunches, and included a number of players who do not usually play in Suffolk events.

An enjoyable two course lunch with wine served as an appetiser to the bridge that followed. To see all the scores click on LUNCH

Congratulations to Frinton Bridge Club on their 50th Anniversary.  The occasion was celebrated by about 50 current and former members with a lunch at Frinton Golf Club, followed by a bridge session.  It was fitting that the bridge was won by one of the founder-members, Tony Haig-Thomas (playing with his brother, David). Results are HERE.
NEW SUFFOLK MEMBER Dovercourt Bridge Club which recently affiliated to the Suffolk Contract Bridge Association.



A team from Ipswich & Kesgrave performed with great credit at the weekend in the regional finals of the Garden Cities Trophy, the EBU's inter county teams of eight competition.

The eight players - Peter Gemmell, Chris Chambers, Maria Allnutt, Debby Sutcliffe, Peter Sutcliffe, Chris Green, Malcolm Pryor and Karen Pryor - finished a very close up third behind teams from Warwick and Cambridge bridge clubs.

Unfortunately only two teams from each of the four regional finals make it through to the final of the competition. To see the results, click on GARDEN

Mike O'Reilly is stepping down from the Suffolk bridge committee after many years as a member. He was presented with something suitably refreshing as way of a thank you by Chris Rickard, the county's competitions secretary, following a recent meeting of the committee.

Hertfordshire has released details of its popular green pointed congress next July.

The two day event will be on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 July at the usual venue - Wodson Park, Wadesmill Road, Ware SG12 0UQ.

When Suffolk captain Rick Hanley and his partner missed a slam, he decided to email US expert Marty Bergen and - for $1 a minute - seek his opinion.

How did he rate my bidding?

Within a couple of hours, I discovered the answer.

He didn't rate it all! Nor did he rate my partner's bidding as being much better.
