Bridge Corner: October 20, 2016

Hello and welcome to the Tidewater Bridge Unit (TBU). On October 11, 2016, Tidewater Bridge Unit hosted a well-attended “PRO/AM GAME.” This game paired more experienced players (PRO-fessional) with less experienced players (AM-ateur), giving the less experienced player the exposure to higher-level/advanced strategies, techniques, bidding, and play-of-the-hand systems used in competitive bridge games. Take a look at the results below and consider joining us for our next PRO-AM game.

Here are details for upcoming opportunities to compete and/or have fun with the TBU family:
On October 22, 2016, the New Journal & Guide will once again observe its annual “Impacting Lives Breakfast,” to celebrate its 116th year. The program will take place at the Murry Banquet Center, 455 Brambleton Avenue in Norfolk. It will be a breakfast from 9 a.m. to noon. Individual tickets are $35 a piece; each table will seat 10 guests. If you would like to sit with the Tidewater Bridge Unit members, please contact Jennifer Douglas at (757) 701-0640.

And of course, we offer bridge classes. Learn to play bridge and have fun while you are learning! New bridge classes are starting soon; be a part of a winning pair!
