We are sorry to report that Mark Halliwell died recently of cancer. Mark was part of the team that ran Bridge World in the late eighties where he taught bridge. He later played regularly at Manchester Bridge Club and in division one of the Manchester league in the Grasshoppers team with Mike Ardron. He did a lot of bridge teaching and introduced players into MCBA clubs and competitions. He won the congress teams, the Higson Plate and the Great Northern Swiss Pairs.
MCBA senior officers are meeting virtually during the lockdown to discuss any urgent MCBA matters. To date, these have largely been around the county's support of online bridge for its members. However, we would be interested to hear from any members or clubs who have any concerns. Please contact the county secretary, Alan Mould, with any item you would like discussed. Keep well and safe and see you the other side of lockdown.
Minutes of this meeting are now on the documents page under executive meetings.
Below are a set of suit combination problems. Assume there are plenty of entries to both hands and no problems with control and no inferences from the auction or previous play unless otherwise stated.
I will add any more as I come across them. Please email me with further problems and I will add them if suitable.
