Turn out for the TTCBA 2011Fiesta was at a record low with only 5 Tables. Our Director, Ralph has been working hard to maintain the weekly Monday games as well as trying to introduce Biweekly Saturday Pair and Team Games. The response has been poor and with the additional problem of finding a new Game venue the Association will need all its members to contribute toward stimulating/reactivating Contract Bridge Activities in Trinidad & Tobago in the New Year.

The Ladies Team captained by Pat Howard defeated the Team Captained by Trevor Hart 292 to 226 IMPs in the 96 Board Final played February 12 & 13.
Jackie Thompson is North and the bidding went as shown. 2 Opener is meant to be Natural and Weak. Playing Ogust 3 means Bad Suit Good Hand. Would you bid 7 with South's Hand?
Now look at all the Hands and try to figure out what happened.
When her very aggressive Turkish Partner bid 7 Jackie was very surprised and passed and it was at this point that she realized that her Opening Bid was 2 and not 2.
Making 7 was simple. K of Spades was led and J of Diamonds was discarded on North's A of Spades. A club to the Ace, A Club Ruff, Pull the 3 rounds of Trumps and Dummy was GOOD.
