Bridge Facilities in India
In this section I would be putting together all the information regarding bridge facilities in the various cities in
India.The information may be sketchy at present but would be made comprehensive in future.
In this section I would cover tournaments happening in India and more so the tournaments
happening in Northern part of India and in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

This week's deal shows what partnership co-operation can do.NS defended excellently to win most of the matchpoints on this deal.
West was playing in 4 after an auction where three suits were bid and received a lead. Usually after such auctions unbid suit is led. Here North did well to avoid lead. East won the trick with Ace and cashed
trump Ace. South discarded Queen and when she followed with 3 on second round of , she had caught the attention of her partner. West continued with third round of which was won by North. On this South played a discouraging . North got the message and played a
instead of . South didn't want a shift from partner and managed to achieve that with carding which caught partner's attention.
Now West was helpless. He won Ace and ruffed
a to come to hand and had to play a by himself. A to King resulted in three tricks going to NS and the
contract went one down.
This would not have happened if North had shifted to s. South had the information needed by partner ie that
he should not shift to and was able to convey it with combination of plays.
