TIPS FOR IMPROVERS
TIPS FOR IMPROVERS

One of the very positive suggestions in response to the questionnaire responses from members was that we should have a 'Tips for Improvers' section based on hands recently played at Manchester Bridge Club. 

Michael Newman now writes tips on hands played during the last month which are posted on the website at the end of each month. 

Please click on the yellow tab (top left) for Michael's invaluable current and earlier 'Tips for Improvers'.
