Last week, during our popular short duplicate Monday Afternoon last week, ten and a half tables played a Web Mitchell movement. Judy Douglas & Diana Kinch got the best North / South result with 62.50; East / West was led by Brenda Berger & Pauline Batchelor with 61.11.

​On Monday Evening ​Margaret Aitchison & Chris Longthorn led a ​three table ​Full Howell movement with ​61.00.​ The numbers may have been low, but the quality was high: average handicap was 50.95%.​

On Tuesday Afternoon ​eleven tables played a two-winner Mitchell movement. ​Terry Leary & Richard Gibson led North / South with ​62.73; East / West was topped by ​Cynthia Martin & Malcolm Fawcett with ​58.41.

​In our summer pairs handicap competition​, out of the regular partnerships, Jane Walker & Margaret Aitchison lead with 60.05, only a tiny margin ahead of Maria Smith & Patti Jarvis. Carol Broadhurst & Maxine Ross are less than 1% behind these two.​ Looking forward to fierce competition over the last few weeks of the competition.​

​Negative Doubles was the topic on Wednesday Morning. ​Four tables practised a variety of situations, talking about the outcomes on each board.

​On Thursday Morning​ the topic was ​Counting Cards and High Card Points​Players practised ​and discussed ​a variety of situations, ​finding how useful detailed observation of cards played, related to the auction, can be.​ Definitely challenging to observe, remember and reason.​

On Thursday Afternoon ​six and a half tables played ​Hesitation Mitchell movement. ​Margaret Aitchison & David Reed led with ​57.92​second were ​Don Prowse & Pauline Smith with ​56.19.

​Out of regular Thursday Afternoon players, the ​current Champagne ​Individual Handicap​ leaders are Pauline Smith and John Cockburn, though Margaret Aitchison and Judy Spring Blagden are close behind.​​

The main theme is auctions opened with a bid at the two level or above.

First is a stand-alone session on opening and responding to pre-emptive hands at the three, or four, level.

Two linked lessons follow: one on opening weak twos; and the second on opening stronger hands having given up the strong two opening. This is Benjaminised ACOL (“Benji”)

Then three sessions on finding and bidding slams.

The “Is game on?” focuses on techniques to decide whether you and partner have a game contract. This question is always at the heart of any duplicate session!

Our quirky “1NT The Chameleon” is a tour of the use of the 1NT bid in many situations. It’s an excellent test and completion of bidding techniques.

We then look at the Multi 2D Opening, why?

Finally we look at some alternative bidding systems you may encounter and how to deal with them.

This is a ten week course. There is a break in the half term week. Much of the time is spent playing pre-set hands. There are colour notes to take away. The course is for players who have taken our Bridge 3 course, or have some duplicate experience.
