Mentored Pivot Teams
Mentored Pivot Teams

This is a chance to play randomly dealt hands with or against an experienced player and then take several minutes to discuss the hand, how it was played and how it might have been played. The same hand is played at other tables, and you will have a chance to understand the differences.

Play is between teams of four players, each led by an experienced player. For each of the three rounds you will swap partners, so you play one round with a mentor, and two against.

Hands will be scored both on a radio linked table scorer and on personal score cards. At the end of each round you return to your team to compare the results you have with your team mates. This provides a chance to understand team scoring, checking it against the computer.

The session is suitable for players of some experience and the fee is at the advanced lesson rate.

There are up to 12 places at each session and we need to know the number of  players to make sure we have full teams for the session. So please let us know if you would like to attend.
