C & G Bridge Studio 7-Dec-2014
Tip of the Week:
time to time you will discover that while defending you have established an
entire suit of your own. The only problem is you have no way to get in and
use it. So dont hang on to that suit if you have something else to
protect. Throwing a low card in a side suit, may allow declarer that extra
trick for a good score. Remember keep winners discard
you are all aware we have been saving our
pop can tabs for Peter
Ineson and the RCMP Vets - if you have any tabs please bring them to
this message is from Peter:
The RCMP Vets are winding up their 1st accumulation and are
preparing to purchase their 1st wheelchair and are hoping to top-up the fund by
collecting whatever tabs are currently available.

This weeks Bridge Quiz:
North East South
pass pass 1NT
2H pass 2S
3D pass ?
open the bidding with 1NT partner responds 2H (transfer) and you bid 2S.
Partner now rebids 3D what is your bid holding:
S 10 4
H K Q 10 5
D Q J 3
C A Q J 7
Solution to Last Weeks Quiz:
the Audrey Grant Daily Bridge Column Quiz #101. See her
wonderful site www.betterbridge.com
is your opening bid holding the following hand:
S A J 10
H K Q 10
D K 10 9
C J 10 9 3
likely counted the points in this hand more than once. It is a mere 14 HCP
rich in 10s and 9s. It looks like 1NT, it even feels like 1NT so
just open 1NT. My guess is even if the hand goes on the
table as dummy, partner wont even notice it is only 14 HCP you have just
ONE card lower than a 6!!
last two quizzes have come from the Audrey Grant Daily Bridge Column. Only
$9.99 per month. It is rich in quizzes, information and hands to play it is well
worth it. following the quiz or hand be sure to read the column for even more
valuable information. To have a look at the site go to www.betterbridge.com
for a sample.
Holidays & See you at t he tables,
& Bill Halliday
