Intermediate Seminar Wednesday 27 October at 14:00
This seminar is on Competitive Doubles

  • 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
