admin on Tuesday 01 January 2013 - 09:35:00 |Commencing on the 9th January, we will have a new afternoon Duplicate session.
We aim to start play at 1:30. It would be helpful if players could be at the club by 1:20, to let us set partnerships & movements.
This will be specifically for Novice players. The precise conditions to qualify as a novice have not yet been established, but as a guide players with a masterpoint rank below Local Master, who have been playing club Bridge for less than 4 years, would be typical.
More experienced players will be welcome, provided they play with (and mentor) a novice, and adhere to the prescribed bidding system. The director may assign a partner for such players.
It is intended as a forum for graduates of beginners' courses, or other new players, to ease into Duplicate competitions amongst players of similar ability.
There will be a prescribed bidding system, simple Standard American, which all players will be expected to use. No additional conventions or variations.
A summary can be found here.
A (first draft) System Card can be found here .
All sessions will be walk-in. It is hoped that most players will come as a pair, but if you come without a partner the director will pair you with another player. If there is an odd number, the director will play.
Extra time will be allowed per board. But we will endeavour to get through at least 24 boards in the session, so Masterpoints can be awarded.
admin on Monday 14 November 2011 - 21:32:31 |Some less experienced players may be playing Teams bridge for the first time in either the Daytime Teams on Mondays, or the Thursday Teams Nights. Teams scoring can be quite confusing to players used to match point pairs only. And an understanding of Teams scoring can be important to some of the decisions you have to make at the table.
Here is a quick guide to teams scoring for those who need help.
And here is a Teams Score Sheet (PDF) with one 6 board match filled in, which might help as an example.
