The main theme is auctions that open with a bid at the two level or above.

  • First lesson 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”)
  • There are then three sessions themed around finding and bidding slams.
  • The “Is game on?” session focuses on techniques to determine whether you and partner have a game contract or not. This question is always at the heart of any duplicate competition!
  • 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.
