SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE
SUPERVISED REFRESH AND PRACTICE

This is a Supervised session at 10:30 am on Tuesday mornings. Led by our excellent teachers, it is aimed at refreshing your knowledge on a particular topic that you may find tricky or on which you may like to refresh your memory.

 

21 Sept:  Counting Losers in Suit Contracts (Tim)

28 Sept: Declarer Play in NT : Entries & Communication (Richard)

5 Oct: Weak Jump Overcalls (Marianne)

This is not a lesson or seminar. Before each session, you will receive notes. The 'Refresh and Practice' session will start with five minutes of Q&A (Questions and Answers) on the topic. This will be followed by the bidding and play of 12 specially prepared hands for you to practice. You do not need a partner.

These sessions will require registration:  Please click the appropriate session to book by 4 pm on the day before the session.

ONLINE SEMINAR 28th SEPT at 2pm - TIM CHANTER

"Coping with Pre-empts" (RealBridge and Zoom)

Opposition pre-empts are very irritating - that is why the baddies make these bids
 
In each of the hands below, you have a decent hand, and your RHO opens 3 Spades
 
You would like to have opened the bidding at a low level and engaged in some bidding with partner to work out the best contract, but with so little space available that is now much harder.
 
What options do you consider for each hand, and what do you choose?
 
If you would like to attend a session reviewing your options when the opponents pre-empt and tips and helping you to judge the best action, then come along to this seminar!

UNDO POLICY
UNDO POLICY

The club allows undo requests for genuine bidding mistakes made as a result of a mechanical error, not a lapse of concentration or forgetfulness, and only when the request is made prior to their partner's bid at the latest.  We do not allow undos for playing. Any awkward exchanges should be referred to the director. Members are reminded that you can change your settings to ensure you double click to make a bid.
