Congratulations to Helen Cameron and Louise Wilson, who WON the Teams event in the "Really-Easy Congress" on Wednesday, and were way out in front in the X-IMPS! They also came 3rd and 6th in two of the Pairs events.
In the Swiss Pairs (four-session) event in the Main congress at the weekend, John Sansom (with Jason Hackett) were 15th=, and Nick Forward and Steve Allerston were 18th=, out of 160 pairs. Well done to all!
Congratulations to Pam Pearce, who (with partner Ron Davis) won the recent Llandudno Swiss Pairs Congress; also to John Sansom (with Jason Hackett) who was in 2nd place.
We would like to think that at Worcester Bridge Club, we can cater for just what you need!
(If you are looking to LEARN the game rather than play, see below under "TEACHING")
Worcester Bridge Club now has two separate sessions, both of which welcome new members and occasional visitors:
VISITORS/GUESTS: Non-members are always welcome to turn up for a game: even on Club competition nights, we are happy for visitors to join in (although mixed pairs cannot play in Men's/Ladies' or vice versa) with the proviso that non-members cannot win a trophy! Table money for guests is £4-00 (£3-00 for members), but you can join on the night and start saving - subs are very low!
TEACHING: We do NOT aim to teach Bridge on our Club sessions - the philosophy is to learn by playing. In the Try-Duplicate section, hosts/stewards are happy to answer your questions briefly if time allows (Should I have been in game? Should I have over-ruffed?) but will NOT try to foist their ideas on you - we leave that to the regular teachers. There are always a few die-hards at the Bar after the event, who will no doubt have ideas on what you should/might have done, though this advice comes with a health-warning! As hands are duplimated, you can also look at the hand records: the ever-wise computer will tell you how many tricks you might have made!
