MONDAY PLAY SESSION - Reminder
When more than 80 players attend ;
EXISTING STUDENTS get top priority
PREVIOUS STUDENTS who attend regularly, get 2nd priority
NON STUDENTS who, over the years have become 'regulars', get 3rd priority,
NEWCOMERS/OCCASIONAL players may be asked to give way.
ALL players should try to be seated 10 minutes before 12.45pm.
When 20 tables are already taken, we will use the categories above to determine who is asked to give way .
We would of course also remind our existing and previous students that we did start a duplicate play on Thursday afternoons specifically to reduce the pressure on the Monday session. The Thursday Duplicate 12.45 - 2.45 pm continues EVERY Thursday.

Many of our students play at duplicate bridge clubs and don't win. They play for the fun/challenge of Bridge in a social setting. Playing against better players is the best way to improve your game and of course to meet a wider circle of friends!
Have you ever thought of actually PLAYING in any of the NEBA clubs?
IF NOT - WHY NOT ? Bridge is just a game of cards with people of varying abilities, many of whom will become your good friends.
FINALLY - have you looked any further than the Newburn results pages on this website? IF NOT - pour yourself a cup of coffee and check it out.
DID YOU KNOW ?
that the Newburn pages are within the website of the NEBA? (North Eastern Bridge Association).
The association organises duplicate bridge in our area and is affilliated to the EBU (English Bridge Union) which is responsible for the development of bridge in England.
There are presently 21 affiliated bridge clubs in the North East of England where you are awarded Masterpoints for getting in the top third of the field on every club night. When you reach a certain number of MPs you are awarded a rank (Similar to coloured belts in Judo or a handicap in golf).
Check the RANKINGS criteria HERE In most affiliated clubs you will get a copy of all the hands you played. (To analyse what went wrong) and you will find people to be very friendly. There is a ZERO TOLERANCE towards bad behaviour.
More and more of 'our players' are playing in affiliated clubs and all NEBA clubs will be very supportive and encouraging to newcomers.
Get involved and give it a whirl! - Neil

DAVE'S BIDDING MACHINE
Dave Dansie's amazing bidding programme is great fun to use.
Like every bridge partner, the computer will not bid perfectly every time, but having the opportunity to see the two hands at the end of the auction should enable you to decide what bids 'might' have got you to the best contract. TRY IT !
