M C & G  Bridge Studio   8-Jul-2018

Tip of the Week: 
While conventions can be useful tools, the most important thing about them is that you and your partner are both fully on the same page. It is much more important to play one or two conventions really well than to play a dozen conventions partially. For instance, discuss the following situations with your regular partner(s):

1NT - P - 2C - P - 2H - P - 3C
1NT - P - 2D - P - 2H - P - 3C

(Assuming you and your partner are playing Stayman and transfers)

Kudos and Congratulations

Kudos to all those who came out to the CAN-AT this week, and congratulations to all the winners! Everyone had a blast at the CAN-AT, especially thanks to the hard work of all the volunteers! We hope to see you all next year in Moncton! The Bridge Studio will be back to its normal schedule this week.

Also, congrats to our new Life Masters: Barb Fader, Elly Bronk, Kathy Ells, Julie Williams and Alan Stern.  TUESDAY JULY 17th will be the official CAKE day – so come with your Can-At Shirts.
