Bridge is a marvellous game. But bridge bidding doesn’t always go smoothly. A bid can sometimes be misconstrued, or a bid can even be made to try to get your partner out of trouble. Not a good idea. But one advantage of bad bidding is that you get good practice at playing atrocious contracts. The real test of a bridge player is not always about staying out of trouble but escaping once you’re in it.
Staying well out of trouble this week were Greig Ball with Margaret Hawken on Tuesday; Suzie McNamara with Beth Thomas for north and John Quin with Peter Dearden for south on Thursday; and Suzie McNamara with Greig Ball on Monday.
We play Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm and Mondays at 6:30pm at the Lutheran Church Hall. Check our website www.parkes.bridge-club.org or call Kevin Robinson 0429 621 712 for more information.
