NEWBURN DUPLICATE
Designed for Inga & Neil's bridge students, the friendly duplicate play sessions are available to any inexperienced players who use Acol or Standard English bidding systems.
 

They are a stepping stone towards playing in NEBA affiliated bridge clubs!

• Players can ask for assistance with bidding or play.

• Partners can be arranged for individual players.

• Weekly results, calculated by Inga are posted on the web

• Inga provides hand copies which are are also posted on the web.

• Occasionally a set hand may be included for monitoring purposes.

• Beginners can play Chicago alongside the main movement.

• Table money with light refreshments is £2

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 !
