New Games Aimed At Non-Expert Players

In addition to the existing Tuesday evening Oliver Cowan PWTE game on a Tuesday night at 7pm, there are now 2 additional games solely for non-expert players.

Wednesday Morning at 10:15am - Friendly Online BC Pairs - this is a relaxed 15 board duplicate session on BBO played with the video function in use so you can chat with your opponents. The game is followed by a hand discussion on zoom where you can ask any questions about boards that gave you difficulty.

Friday Afternoon at 2pm - Oliver Cowan @ LOP PWTE - This will be an 18 or 20 board duplicate session running the same way as Tuesday evenings and will also be handicapped.

Both these new sessions are $3.50 in BBO dollars and are open to members and guests - get in touch with Oliver if you want to play but don't use dollars.
