Suitable for Improvers. Following a 1NT or 2NT opening bid, a transfer is a bid in a suit ranking below the suit you actually hold. It asks partner to bid the suit you hold. The transfer convention can help you to find game and suggest whether you should be aiming to play in a major suit or NT. Friendly, informal session. £10:

B                                        Biddding to Slam  

                                                                        SATURDAY 8 May 2021

                                                                             10.30 -12.30

There are two important elements to slam bidding.  Firstly, estimating whether your hands are strong enough for a slam and secondly, assessing the necessary controls and trump honours. It isn’t always easy, but bidding and making a slam is one of the great satisfactions in playing bridge. The session will look at quantitative bidding in NT; Blackwood and Gerber over 1NT/2NT openings. Cost £10. Please use the link here to reserve a place:-



                                                   Responder’s second Bid

                                                             SATURDAY 15 May 2021

                                                                 10.30 -12.30

In the majority of auctions, the initial bids exchange information about suit lengths and HCP’s. The purpose of this early bidding conversation is to describe your hand and look for a good fit, rather than to reach a final contract. Later bids in the auction are frequently stronger and suggest both the best trump suit (or NT) and level for the partnership’s final contract. The session will cover responding with both weak and strong hands. Cost £10. Please use the link here to reserve a place:-

The 1NT dustbin bid in response to partner's one of a suit opening can be confusing as it doesn't need to show a balanced hand. If you're not sure about how to use this bid effectively, watch my 5 minute revision video here:-
