This week’s doubles course content

We are a bit slow on getting the last week’s content uploaded but we have noticed that most people aren’t even ready for it!  Here’s an idea, why don’t you race us – can you get up to the bits that aren’t uploaded before we do?  

  • Forcing pass auctions (uploaded but no quiz)
  • Lead directing doubles (uploaded but no quiz)
  • Doubles of conventional bids and 2 suiters (coming soon)
  • Redoubles (coming soon)
  • Course summary  (coming soon) 

We have also decided to extend the member only promotion until the end of September, afterall…..if it’s taking us nearly a week extra to produce it’s probably taking you a week extra to digest!

Weekly free tournament – a week to beat Pete with 54.01%

The weekly free tournament is great fun and a wonderful teaching tool.  You play the same 8 boards with a robot partner and against robot opponents as everyone else.  Your scores are compared to 14 other players and you can watch Pete’s (and other youTube videos) of the play.  If you don’t already play it, all you need is a BridgeBase online login and you are ready to go!

Wroclaw World Championships

It’s early days in Poland with the round robin phase only 2 days in.  Australia is currently leading the mixed division by a MASSIVE 23 VPs!  The finals don’t kick off until next Monday and we are hoping to bring you some Vugraph commentary when it’s closer to the pointy end.  

At this time last year Chennai was getting underway and the rumours about cheating at the game were in full swing.  This year the World Bridge Federation Credentials Committee did withdraw the invitation to the Italian mixed pair Enza Rossano and Antonio Vivaldi.
