Pete Plays blind: Thursday 1.00 pm 

Magnus Carlsen, the World Champion at chess can play (and win) 10 games without seeing a single chess board.  This got us to wondering how we would go at playing bridge blind!  On Thursday we will take on the BBO free daylong tournament with the cards being being told to us!  Tune in live at 1.00 on Thursday.

Like the idea?  You might want to read the bridge book The Cardturner.  It’s a good read.  



This week’s featured lesson 11.00 Thu:  2WCB (XYZ)

Two way checkback (2WCB) is one of our favourite conventions.  In last week’s lesson on transfers after a 1C opening it got quite a few mentions.  This week we will look at this great convention.  This lesson is recommended for advanced players or intermediate players who are very keen, love system and are in a regular partnership.

Labs – new ideas

Bridge Vid is made for you!  We have hundreds of ideas running through our minds about things that we could do on the site.  

We have created a section called Labs where we post our new ideas for your input.  This week we have added an idea for Bridge Trivia and also a Bridge at Home program for non bridge players.

Have a look at the Labs page HERE

Interested in the trivia?  We have taken the idea from a group that plays the popular online card game Hearth Stone.  You won’t know the answers to the questions but why not take a look and see if you like the style HERE.

Have an idea that you would like to see on BV?  email us at
