Advanced Bridge

Advanced Bridge is intended for the bridge player with some experience using an ACOL based bidding system.

Advanced Bridge sessions are generally offered during the three teaching terms starting in January, April and September.

Our material evolves to meet players' requests and ever changing bridge playing strategies. However we offer three different sets of ten sessions.

The "Jump" series cover auctions starting with Level 2 or above openings bids. Amongst others topics include: pre-empts, weak twos, strong hands in a weak two environment, the Multi 2 Diamonds.

The "Competitive" series covers competitives auctions. Amongst others, topics include: competiting against pre-empts and weak twos, unassuming cue bids, various doubles, competing against one no trump openings, escapes from one no trump doubled.

The "Playing" series covers advanced declarer and defence play. 

Sessions are generally in the form of a short discussion of the topic followed by the play hands with discussion.
