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.

It is often crucial to be able to lead from a particular hand at the right time. This Workshop / Seminar will show you how to take care of your entries so you don't get cut off from your winners.
 
Sunday 26th October at 3.15pm

Sunday 16th November at 3.15pm
"Establishing"
Long suits and high cards often allow extra tricks to be made. This Workshop / Seminar will show you how to identify and tackle such holdings.
 
Sunday 30th November at 3.15pm
"Winning at Duplicate"
Understanding how bridge duplicate scoring works is vital if you want to win regularly. Here we take a close look at the 'scoreslip' and extract some useful tips for scoring heavily.
 
 
 
Each seminar starts with a discussion on the topic of the day. This is followed by the opportunity to play a number of set hands that have been designed to illustrate the topic and help establish the new techniques learned. There's a short break in the middle for light refreshments provided by the club and the workshop usually lasts around two hours.
Cost is £8 for Members
