  Seminar - The Contested Auction

A seminar led by Mike Rothwell on the Contested Auction will take place at AHSC on the morning of Sunday 4th November 2018 starting at 10:00am. The cost will be £5.

Mike will be looking at ways to help to decide when to compete and how high to compete. In particular he will discuss the Law of Total Tricks, offense/defence ratio and bidding techniques which will help in avoiding having to make the final guess.

Please complete the form below if you are likely to attend. You will then receive some questions to tackle in advance!
