This week’s 5 card ending problem
Different types of cue bids explained (live Thursday 11.00 Melb time)
Cue bids are things used in a variety of situations. Just off the top of the head you can think of Michaels cue bids, cue bidding to slam, cue bidding showing a stopper, cue bidding asking for a stopper and cue bidding with a splinter (yikes). This week Pete will discuss this term that can often be confusing and discuss the common types of cue bids that are used.
Wroclaw World Championships
The Worlds are coming to the pointy end. No promises but we are hoping to bring you some commentary from the final on Friday and Saturday nights Melbourne time. More information will be posted on the Bridge Vid Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/bridgevid/ when we know more.
As we go to email the Aussie seniors team are the last Aussies standing and are leading their quater final against the USA and fellow Australiasians NZ are behind in their QF against Spain.

A double dummy problem with ALOT of bite
Want to watch a BV session live and interact?
We are off to NZ to defend our teams championship win from last year
NZ is a beautiful place and has a wonderful national bridge congress. Last year we played and comfortably made the quater finals to then win our QF and SF by our carry forward! After the nail biters we took out the final and are heading back to defend this year with the same team of Matthew Brown (currently in Poland representing NZ open) Paul Gosney (currently in Sydney teaching maths), Tony Nunn (currently in Poland representing AUS) and Michael Whibley (Matt’s partner in Poland).
This means that there won’t be any live sessions from September 22 – October 2. While we are away there will still be new Daily Dose episodes published and a newsletter (not to mention a double dummy problem).
Thanks for your support Happy Bridge Vid-ing, Laura and Pete
