As part of our training programme for this season, we are running a number of short seminars prior to the club duplicate sessions. There are two types of event: the first will focus on a specific topic, and the other will be a discussion of the hands from the previous week’s duplicate session for that day.
The events will start at 6.30 pm, in the left hand side of the bridge room, and will last no more than 40 minutes. Members are free to join the event at any time. There is no charge for these events. All members are welcome but the events are aimed at basic to intermediate players rather than experts.
There will be approximately one a month and we will spread these across Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday Night Duplicate Players
There will be one hand discussion each month for each day, as shown below. The expert presenter will select some interesting hands from the previous week as a starting point, but anyone can ask to discuss a particular hand. You do not need to have played the previous week to attend. However, if you do play a week ahead of the event, we recommend that you keep a scorecard and make a note of anything you’d like to raise. The hands will be shown on the TV screen to facilitate discussion but we will have some copies available for anyone far from the screen.

Our first Sunday seminar of the year took place on Sunday, 13 January 2019. This was a very well-attended event, led by Mike Ferguson, and gave a good insight into competitive bidding and the use of doubles. The next seminar is arranged for Sunday, 3 February at 11.00 am in the bridge suite. The topic of 'Card Play' will be led by Nick Woolven. There will be a cost of £2.
Details of the March seminar will be confirmed in due course.
There will be hand discussions once a month for those who are playing on Wednesday evening. The discussions will begin at 6.30 pm and will finish around 7.10 pm.
