YCBA Inter-City League - Match Day 6

 

Scores from 11th February 2018.
 

Scarborough 'A'       1   19 Bradford 'A'
Bradford 'B'       9   11 Garforth 'A'
Bradford 'C'     15     5 Leeds 'F'
Bradford 'D'       9    11 Halifax 'C'
Brighouse 'D'     14      6 Bradford 'E'

 

Their best result this season sent the 'A' team into mid-table. A last day win or even a narrow defeat will keep them in the top division next season.

 

Despite a close defeat, our 'B' team has improved to one place above the relegation spots. It is a very delicate position in that division and they will need to be on their toes in the last match.

 

A good victory for the 'C' team takes them to third in their league but they are 10VP behind second spot so they will need some luck if they are to gain a promotion place.

 

Defeats for 'D' and 'E' leaves the former in mid-table and the latter in the bottom half of their division.

 

Plenty to play for in the final matches which will be played on 4th March 2018.

 

The league tables can be viewed on the YCBA website.


Bridge England Pairs

The Club participated in the  Bridge England Sim Pairs competition on Wednesday 7th February and the national results are now on the EBU website and can be seen on http://www.ebu.co.uk/sim-pairs/000252.  Assuming that all participating Clubs have sent their results in to the EBU, there were 176 competing pairs.  Out of the Bradford contingent, Harry Hoyle and Martin Epstein gained the  highest percentage.  They scored 62.70% and came 7th nationally. 


Doncaster Swiss Pairs

Steve Blackburn and George Bak came third out of the forty pairs competing in the Doncaster Swiss Pairs event held on 4th February.  

 

Well done, both of you.


Pro-Am Evening League Update

After 5 rounds. this competition has developed into a keenly contested event.

 

Team Jagger has taken the lead but only 2VP seperates the top three teams (Jagger, Winter/Logan and Berry).

 

So everything to play for in the final two matches the first of which will be played on 6th March.

 

Full results and the league table can be viewed via the link on the results page.


Tuesday and Thursday afternoon bridge

As from 13th February 2018 Ray (Foster) has kindly offered to act as host on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, so anyone without a partner will be assured of a game then as well as at the other hosted sessions. The Tuesday and Thursday afternoons are very enjoyable and attended by players of varying standards. Everyone will be most welcome. Please come.


The '100' Club

Soon, Morris Brown will be asking members if they would like to take part in the '100' Club this year.

This is a fund-raising venture which, not only contributes revenue for Bradford Bridge Club, but also provides a very pleasant monetary surprise for the winners of the weekly draws.

In 2017 £950 was collected, of which £500 was paid out in Prize money and £450 went into club funds.

Your support for the '100' Club in 2018 would be greatly appreciated.
