Welcome to Kendal Bridge Club
  Seminar - Slam Bidding

Our next seminar led by Philip Wraight on Slam Bidding will take place at AHSC on the morning of Sunday 13th January 2019 starting at 10:00am. The cost will be £5.

Philip will use examples from the 40 or so sessions played at the club from September to November to answer two questions - how do we recognise hands where 12 tricks are possible and how do we stop short of bidding slam when the opponents can cash two tricks?

Please complete the form below if you are likely to attend.
