Upcoming Improver Class

With the advent of Weak 2 Opening Bids, 2, 2, 2♠, now being taught to Beginners from the 2023/2024 season, as recommended by the CBAI, it means that players who learned bridge prior to this year may wish to learn Weak 2 Opening Bids.

Weak 2 Opening Bids occur frequently, whereas Strong 2 Opening Bids will only occassionly occur.

I am holding an Improver Class on Weak 2 Opening Bids of 2, 2, and 2♠ on Saturday 20th April 2024 at 10am.
