With West on lead there was no question of

knocking out anyone's entries - the heart lead set up

nine tricks for the defence, and when the hearts

were run South had difficulty with his discards.

Exploiting this, the defenders were able to endplay

him in diamonds to lead away from his clubs, and

he could take only three tricks for a penalty of 1400.

I'm not sure whether that kind of coup has a name,

but I imagine the penance would be somewhat

severe. r

Congratulations to Broxbourne Bridge Club

which marked its 50th anniversary with a day of

bridge - pairs in the morning and teams in the

afternoon. At least three members have played

there for over 46 years. Ian Kemp & Sara Barnett

(pictured with sponsor Simon Frost of GPFM

Hertford) won the Pairs, and Phil Taylor, Dominic

Stone, Jenny & Steve King won the Teams event.

50 YEARS FOR BROXBOURNE

Chipping Sodbury BC has raised more than £200

at its first charity garden party. Nearly 30 players

came to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer

Support in early July, and enjoyed a day of bridge

and a lunch made by former Masterchef winner

James Nathan. The prize winners are pictured.

CHIPPING SODBURY CHARITY

the promisingly-titled Stairway to Heaven. The

games were played across 16 venues all within a

few minutes walk, and there were two levels of

competition. Olicana's Di Roberts and John

Williams (pictured) finished in second place in the

B Division, winning a handsome Euro60 each

which paid nicely for dinner that evening.

GOING DUTCH

HORSHAM TEACHING SUCCESS

Extreme temperatures prompted a West Suffolk

village bridge club to resort to extreme measures

to escape the heat - playing outdoors in the dark.

Rather than meet as normal inside Stansfield

village hall at their regular Tuesday and Thursday

evening sessions, members set up on the playing

field outside. When the light started to fade players

produced torches, iPhones and, in one case, head

lamps to provide the necessary illumination.

OUTDOOR BRIDGE

Six bridge players

from Olicana Bridge

Club joined nearly

200 pairs competing

in the Utrecht Café

Bridge, with
