These are one-off practice sessions themed on a card play topic.
Some knowledge of duplicate bridge and some experience of bridge card play will be helpful, but complex bidding expertise is not needed.
Declarer Play Topics help declarers to find the best strategy for their cards, and to look for the key clues from the defence play to make extra tricks.
Conversely, defence play topics should improve their defenders' ability to communicate with each other through the card play and to keep declarer to the minimum number of tricks.
Defence is about team work. Regular partnerships could well get the best out of the defence sessions by attending together.
Although all sessions can be used as one-offs, the sessions on Attitude and Count and Suit Preference Signals do go well together.
