M C & G  Bridge Studio   5-Aug-2018

Tip of the Week: 
When your partner has opened with a weak-two, you need to immediately re-evaluate your hand - partner has essentially said "my hand works well in my suit and has little else". As such, if you have support for your hand and good distribution (a singleton or void), your hand is worth a lot more than a generic, flat thirteen-count. Exercise great caution in bidding over partner's preempt holding a singleton or a void in their suit - they've warned you they've got little else!

Kudos and Congratulations

We had two big games this week! Firstly, on Monday evening, we had Marilyn Robertson and Ron Harnish with a 73.21% game! And Friday Morning, we had Bill Ellis and Sue Hill-Ellis with a 73.61% game! Congrats!

*** Note: The Bridge Studio will be opened Monday afternoon & evening on August 6th - Natal Day ***


Special Game & Events this Week 

We have three NAP-qualifying games this week. Each game awards triple points, part red, for only an extra dollar. These games will be:

Monday, August, 6th 12:30pm – OPEN game

Tuesday, August 7th, 12:30pm – 499ers game

Friday, August 10th, 12:30pm - OPEN game

Also, next week, we have two opportunities for advancing players to get silver points - the Tuesday afternoon 499ers game and the Saturday Up the Ranks!

For students of the game:

Come on out to our Thursday evening game! During the summer, it will be a non-sanctioned, $5 game aimed towards newer players – so be sure to come on out and have a good time over the summer!

Additionally, Gary is still holding his Summer School this Thursday morning. We've been looking at overcalls, takeout doubles and responses thereto - be sure to look out for your quiz!

Our Up the Ranks game will be held on Saturday, August 18th, 12:30pm, and will offer silver points! This 0-1000 team game is a perfect time for newer players to come out and play their first team game, while also being ideal for more experienced players! If you need teammates, contact Kathie!
