Carlton Tuesday evening Bronze
Carlton Tuesday evening Bronze


Every Tuesday at 7:00 Sara Duncan runs a Bronze event. Similar to the No Fears, its fun to play in and anybody can come along.I recommend all new players try it out and Sara will look after you well! All you need do is turn up on the night and are guaranteed a game. Not to mention the catering, the best provided by any Bridge club in Scotland! So even if the bridge is not going to plan the tea break will make up for it!! Please note this is a Carlton event and if you play on a regular basis i would invite you to become a member and join the club! 


Info on how to play at BBO's Acol bridge club.

I have received many queries about Bridge base online. This is a free and excellent site.It is paid for by Bill Gates, a really good player who likes to encourage Bridge. I would suggest you play at the Acol players bridge club where you can play your normal methods in a relaxed atmosphere.
If you want to play some hands or register with BBO just CLICK THIS LINK '
To watch just go to View Graph and click the table you want to spectate.
If you prefer to Play... follow these instructions.
1)Click..list all tables.
2)Click ...private and public bridge club.
3)Click ..Acol players bridge club.
4) Click a seat and say ' Hi P ..I play a weak NT with 3 weak twos!'.
Should you play with somebody who does not play weak two bids ...a strong 2 shows about 18-21 points with a good six card suit(a hand you are very unlikely to hold).
This should do the job and you wont have to play a strong NT!!
