PROs AND CONs from BD72
New Video Series about Bidding
 

Our partner, bid72, has started a new video series called Pros and Cons. In each video, a bridge champion weighs the pros and cons of challenging bidding decisions. They take you by the hand (ha, hand) and guide you through their way of thinking. In episode no. 1, the brilliant Zia Mahmood discusses a high-level dilemma.

In case you’re not familiar with bid72, they’re a free app the ACBL has partnered with for the weekly ABC - ACBL Bidding Contest. (You can read more about it in the Bidding Box section of the Bridge Bulletin.)
