U3A Intermediate Bridge Duplicate Tournament -
Friday 2014-05-16

The hands were shuffled well (6+ riffles) and dealt in 5 piles with the fifth pile then dealt to complete the 4 hands. Generally I looked at the hands and placed the strongest two as one pair.

I plan to review the hands over the summer and will post suggested 'results' by the end of August.
