Each club is allocating one normal BCL Club duplicate evening as a qualifier event. The top 12 pairs will compete in the final for the overall trophy, with each club being awarded finals places in proportion to the number of players in their qualifier.   All other pairs will qualify for the plate competition.

Entrants need to be current BCL members with duplicate pairs experience. Full instructions will be sent to participants before the event.

     - Bourne Bridge Club qualifier    Thurs 3rd Dec,  7:15pm for 7:30pm
Pairs may enter more than one qualifier.  If an individual wants to enter with more than one partner, a separate entry form needs to be completed for each partner.

Note:  The FINAL (12 pairs, 22 boards) and the PLATE (18 boards) are on Sunday 6th Dec,  2pm for 2:15pm.

Suggested donation £20 per pair.  This link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/CurriePairs  will send entry money directly to the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice   If pairs enter more than one qualifier, they might like to consider an extra donation.

Online Lessons

Online Lessons - Series on Defence and Sniffing Slams

Meena Samani, who runs the Fun 2 Play Bridge Club, is running lessons on Wed mornings, starting with a Zoom session, followed by play in a duplicate format on BBO.

The next few topics, include a series on Defence (which is 50% of the game and very satisfying to get a contract down with legal signalling), followed by a series on sniffing Slams and bidding them accurately.

Please click HERE to see the list of topics and dates.

Please book the topics / dates you are interested in on the Fun 2 Play website https://www.bridgewebs.com/fun2play/, from the Menu on the left.  Please add Camberley or Yateley & Hawley in the comments field for the discounted rate.

EBU for Improvers

To all our improver and novice players. The EBU haven’t forgotten you. 

With online bridge becoming the ‘new normal’ there is an opportunity for you to play online with BBO in a relaxed session on a Wednesday afternoon. There are opportunities to ask questions about bidding and play and also a post play Zoom session to analyse the hands. With our own face to face sessions on hold this seems an ideal opportunity to mimic supervised play sessions. Click the link below or look at the new ebed website also shown below.
