Improvers hands

Room E (for Education)

The following hands have been loaded into Room E of the Teaching Area of Bridge Club Live at three different 'Time Slots'.

You can either use this as a 'stand-alone' teaching aid by 'bidding the hand' then revealing how the experts would have bid it or get together with three other friends and bid & play the hands. For the latter you will need to speak to your BCL Bridge Teacher for the PIN to enter the Teaching Area or email us at

Some students who regularly play Social Bridge are using these hands to "warm up" by playing a couple of hands and then discussing them (using the new Audio Video System) before playing in the Social Bridge room.

There are multiple hands per 'Slot' for every weekday, giving Students the opportunity of playing more than 200 boards with comprehensive analysis of the Bidding & the Play.
