I WILL BE GIVING A MINI LESSON ON WEDNESDAY APRIL 17TH AT 1:30 PM . THE TOPIC - IS IT FORCING?
THINK ABOUT ALL THE TIMES WHERE YOU THOUGHT YOU MADE A BID THAT WAS FORCING AND IT TURNED OUT NOT TO BE, OR MORE LIKELY - IT'S YOUR PARTNER WHO GOT IT WRONG :) DURING THIS MINI LESSON WE WILL COVER SEVERAL SITUATIONS WHERE AS OPENER, RESPONDER OR IN THE MIDDLE OF A COMPETITIVE AUCTION , YOU WILL HAVE TO DECIDE WHETHER A BID IS FORCING OR NOT.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
