M C & G  Bridge Studio   2-Sep-2018

NOTE: The Bridge Studio IS OPEN Labour Day [September 3rd] for both the afternoon and evening game.

Tip of the Week: As declarer, you are entitled to know about the defender's cards played, and should use this information to your advantage as much as possible. For instance, if LHO leads the Jack of Diamonds at trick one, he's likely to have the Ten of diamonds as well [and, similarly, not the Queen]. Additionally, get rid of the card you're known to hold first, given two equals. For instance, if LHO leads the Jack and you've got the Queen and the King, take your queen first - RHO knows that you have to have it!

Kudos and Congratulations:

Thanks you to everyone who has helped out [or is continuing to help out] with the redecoration at the Bridge Studio! We've all been hard at work - so come on out and see all the new changes!
