Delve Deeper Mar 21

Let’s Delve Deeper – Bridge Base Online   March 2021

March has me looking at BBO.  After chatting with some novice players at the table, I mentioned how helpful the Practice button on BBO has been to me, especially for practice during Covid.  The good news is it caters for Beginner right through to World Class.  The bidding is done for you; you play the hand. Easy!  What I like is as soon as I stall and cannot make the contract, there is a Show Solution button. You can play the hands as many times as you wish and very soon you are transferring skills learned to the face-to-face Bridge table.

Because I have an account to play with BBO, there is no charge. Otherwise, you will have to create a BBO number and pay whatever you wish as there is a small charge.

The sequence is Log in, Practice tab, Bridge Master, and play

Delve Deeper Feb 21

Delve Deeper is a new addition to our library files.  The aim is to bring attention to a website or a book in our library.  We have a wealth of varying levels of knowledge in our own club, and it is hoped you will share your expertise in this section. It is important to cater for everyone, and my experience is more as a beginner/improver.  In this month’s delving deeper I have chosen to explore our own  Australian Bridge Federation website

Click on the Education button and then scroll down to the bottom to click on "Classroom Resources"

Here you will find different Learner Guided Paths:

Rebids, Judgement, Novices, Improvers, Videos

 

Happy exploring from your library team
