M C & G Bridge Studio 19-Aug-2018
TIP OF THE WEEK: When
discarding - be careful if you are voiding yourself in a suit. This is
GREAT if you know partner can get in and give you a ruff. But terrible if
when declarer plays the suit and you show out - they will know how to pick off
your partner's honours in that suit. If you have a long useless suit -
discard from that!
Ann & Cel Dicks with 70.83%
for their win on Tuesday afternoon and along with Eleanor Luckhurst and Linda
MacLeod snagged first place on Saturday in the Up the Ranks
-- well done everyone. Up the Ranks on Saturday also found the team of Doreen
Hamilton, Phyllis Spurway, Janet Benvie and Sally Ritcey second place overall
and 1st in flight C.
VICTOR is back this week
and must be commended on the fine showing in China. Considering that in
Europe and Asia bridge is in the school cirriculum and they have hundred of kids
playing which is far different than in Canada -our Canadian Youth team came 11
out of 22; they won 12 of 21 matches - a good showing. Canada has an under 16
team (from Toronto) and the team came SECOND in the overalls.
