Learn to play bridge this autumn
If you ever wanted to play the undoubted king of card games, this September provides many opportunities to learn and start playing at The Avenue Bridge Club. Duplicate bridge is a whist based trick taking card game (if you’ve ever played Hearts on your computer, it’s a bit like that). Whilst poker has a high element of skill with an element of luck, duplicate bridge is a game of 100% skill!
And once you get good, there’s money to be won in the Rubber version of the game.

The man from 88A won £88
Anyone who has met Bazzer on the green beige will have soon found out three things, his fondness for pocket eights and ace eight because he lives at 88A. With 22 runners, the August 19 tournament had a top prize of £88, with £66 for second, £44 for third and £22 for fourth. All added incentive for Barry to pull off one of his rare wins. The event did not start well for him, having to use his add on chip fairly quickly and that second 20k of chips had soon eroded to less than 7K. But it was then the fight back started! Double up followed double up and when top table was reached he was in second chip ranking. He knocked out six of the top eight. Our bubble was Rama Rahimi, Billy Goldsmith came fourth, third Louis Mockett, who put a bar of Bounty on his head and Dan Bruncak second. Louis was playing his joker and this move put him into the league lead. There’s a lot to play for next week, the final session of our Summer 2019 season.
The night of twenty two -
Our Glorious 12th of August game started with 22 players and a pot of £220. The first
hand on table one, rivered quad twos and had generated two 20k all ins from Will
Coombe and Carol Burtenshaw, Will was behind until fifth street as Carol had flopped
a full house. Jamie Cleaver, of 22-
Twenty six compete in August’s first game
The first three places of Aug 5’s £250 prize pool were split three ways with £75 taken by Dez Fry, Louis Mockett and Ed Lynham, with fourth placed James Armstrong taking £25. Our unfortunate bubble boy was Rosario Graziona. The results in Bonus Points Week have significantly closed the gap on the league leaders with Louis Mockett in a particularly rich run of recent form. The excess £10 stake will be donated to a charity of the players’ choosing. This ensures we keep within the spirit of the Licensing Laws.
