The main theme is auctions opened with a bid at the two level or above.
First is a stand-alone session on opening and responding to pre-emptive hands at the three, or four, level.
Two linked lessons follow: one on opening weak twos; and the second on opening stronger hands having given up the strong two opening. This is Benjaminised ACOL (“Benji”)
Then three sessions on finding and bidding slams.
The “Is game on?” focuses on techniques to decide whether you and partner have a game contract. This question is always at the heart of any duplicate session!
Our quirky “1NT The Chameleon” is a tour of the use of the 1NT bid in many situations. It’s an excellent test and completion of bidding techniques.
We then look at the Multi 2D Opening, why?
Finally we look at some alternative bidding systems you may encounter and how to deal with them.
This is a ten week course. There is a break in the half term week. Much of the time is spent playing pre-set hands. There are colour notes to take away. The course is for players who have taken our Bridge 3 course, or have some duplicate experience.
