Back to Basics
Back to Basics

New ONLINE Learning Sessions - alternate Wednesdays at 14:00 starting 6 October with Tim Chanter.
In each of these sessions, we review one key building block of bidding or play, starting with "Reverse" bidding (Also known as bidding above the "Barrier").
The term is not that intuitive but is not that difficult to understand and is important. We answer three questions:
1. What is a "Reverse"?
2. What sort of hand does it show?
3. Why does it promise a strong hand?
Notes will be sent out before the session.  On the day there will be a mini-lesson on the topic, followed by play of several boards illustrating the topic, and these will be followed by hand records/commentaries.
Please click HERE to register.  Links for this online session will be emailed with the notes.

UPCOMING SEMINARS

Intermediate Seminars with Tim Chanter (online on Zoom and RealBridge)                                                                                                                                                                 

 Seminar on Splinter Bids 29 Sept  @14:00  (Book Now)

  • These clever bids let you show trump agreement with partner AND a singleton in another suit, suggesting partner considers slam with an appropriate holding
  • Since splinter bids are always shown below game level they get across the hand type fast, but without committing the partnership beyond the game.

Seminar on Planning the Play in No Trumps13 Oct @14:00 (Book Now)

  • Making a plan as declarer is vital at Trick 1, and in NT contracts usually depends on assessing your opportunities for extra tricks in each suit; while keeping a close eye on how much control you have in your weaker holdings
  • As the play progresses you can update your plan depending on how many tricks develop, and how you assess the ongoing risks

Seminar on Competitive Doubles 27 Oct @14:00 (Book Now)

  • One of the most useful bidding tools in contested auctions is the double card
  • You need a clear agreement with your partner about what distribution is shown in any situation, and what level of strength
  • In addition, you need a clear agreement about when a double is for take-out and when it is for penalty.
