We are very sorry to have to announce that Howard Carless passed away last week after a short illness. The Wednesday morning group and the Monday afternoon players will remember what a gentleman Howard was, always friendly to others and philosophical about his bridge. We will pass on the details of his funeral as soon as we hear them.

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.
