1st Borders Charity Simultaneous Pairs

The 1st Borders Charity Simultaneous Pairs was held on Thursday 6 July 2017. It was organised by the Peebles Bridge Club in association with a number of bridge clubs in the Scottish Borders.

A hand commentary was provided by Paul Gipson. It was assumed that most participants would be playing Acol, with a weak no trump and weak two bids in the majors.

The Berwick-upon-Tweed Bridge Club made a donation to the Grenfell Tower Appeal.
