On-Line Improver Bridge Classes

 

On-Line Improver Group Classes this Term with Graham Baskerville.

There will be five sessions this term with the emphasis on the techniques related to Slam Bidding.  Slams get great scores and depend on the ability to recognise that a Slam may be on and then having the techniques to explore whether the Slam will be successful.

The classes will take place on Thursday mornings starting at 9.30 with a Presentation on Zoom followed after a break by a Practice Session with Set Hands on RealBridge.  Notes and commentaries on the Hands will be provided.

           

Thursday 26th January  Roman Key Card Blackwood (1430)

Thursday 2nd February  Cue Bidding showing first or second round control

Thursday 9th February   Splinter Bids

Thursday 16th February No Class – Schools Half Term

Thursday 23rd February Jacoby                                                                     

Thursday 2nd March       Quantitative Bidding

The classes are open to anyone who plays regularly and wishes to improve their Bridge.  Learning from home on-line is very convenient and learning together can be great fun.  There is no need to have a partner but, obviously, it is an advantage if your regular partner attends too.

The cost is £25 (£5 per lesson) ideally paid in advance, with refunds if you cannot attend.

Please contact Graham Baskerville for further information or details of enrolment.  grahambaskerville@me.com      07775 501710
