|Playing on Tour|
Whether you are a Life Master or a Novice, Finesse West Tours offers a very special kind of bridge holiday. Through months of communication and organization between Finesse West Tours and local bridge clubs, unforgettable evenings are planned for all to enjoy.
And as far as bridge-playing experience goes, our clients are made up of players at all skill levels. Our emphasis while on holiday is clearly on socializing and enjoying the hospitality of local bridge players. Hopefully, you too will be able to experience this soon.
No problem. Since Finesse West's tours are comprised of many single folks, we have many players who need partners. We encourage everyone, even those who come with a companion, to mix it up. We've had many couples on tour, who choose not to play together during an entire tour! In fact, if we set you up with a roommate in our Roommate Program, we'd prefer you played with other partners. You'll have more stories to tell back in your room. Of course, playing with your traveling companion is OK too. It's your vacation. Nonetheless, Fred Theurkauf is on every tour to make sure you have a partner for every game.
Drawing for Fred
If you are dealt more than your fair share of yarboroughs then you've got a reasonable chance of being stuck playing with Fred. He's generally desperate for a partner and we always have a drawing for him before games. Of course, you don't have to draw, but Fred 'thinks' he can follow suit. By the way, it's the closest to the 2 that gets him.
