Woburn Sands Bridge Club is planning to run an accelerated learning programme (12x2 hour lessons/practice play) on Monday afternoons at St Marys Church Hall West Hill Woburn Sands from October 7th to December 2019 1-3pm.
Participation will be limited to 20 individuals (a partner is optional) on a first come first served basis.
The cost will be £50 per person of which £30 will be for course materials.
Please register your interest with Peter Bellingham at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is particularly suited to those returning to the game after a break, whist players etc who have some familiarity with a pack of cards.
We are also interested in hearing from complete beginners for whom we would plan a couple of introductory sessions ahead of the formal learning programme.
N/S got a bottom due to excellent play by West. North opened 1♦ , E passed, S bid 1♥ and W overcalled 1♠ . North bid 2♥ , East 2♠ ( 3♠ is possibly better), South competed with 3♥ and the bidding proceeded by East bidding 3♠ and North made an unwise double. N led the K♥ which is a good shot ( normal would be to lead 3♥ ) as he hopes to hold the lead and having seen dummy decide on the best defence. West won A♥ and ruffed a heart followed by leading a small diamond to the King won by North's A♦ . N returned J♦ , won by the Q♦ . Declarer led the last diamond from dummy, S ruffed with 9♠ ( discarding instead gives W an easy ride to nine tricks). West cleverly discarded a club and 9 tricks could not be stopped. If West overruffs the 9♠ with the Ace she goes one down. A well deserved top for E/W and a fully deserved bottom for N/S.
