This week’s featured lesson:  Let’s play slam

This week Laura will talk about the quirks of declaring a slam rather than a part score or game contract.  Often it’s hard to see the problems in a slam contract because you have so many winners/so few losers.  Some people also find that they become quite nervous declaring slams or really struggle if they are under time pressure due to taking more time in the auction.  Join in live to learn some useful tricks for declaring slams.
