Festive celebrations study

Most Bridge Vid-ers have already started their December Study.  Our entire collection of Short Course subjects are available to members until the end of December.


IMPORTANT:  You will need to click “BUY THIS COURSE” at the top of the page when you are in the course area.  The charge is $0.00 but we can’t alter the button to say “Enrol in this Course” 


There is now a black button at the top of the home page which takes you to the short course page with quick links to the courses.  This will make them easier to access.


Do you have less than 50 masterpoints and live in Australia?

The 2017 Summer Festival of Bridge is just under 1 month away.  If you’re not entered why not take on the challenge of playing in a national event and earning some lucrative Gold Masterpoints!  If your worried about taking the leap, don’t be.  Laura has taken on the role of Novice Player Liaison and Director with the ABF for the event.  This will mean that she is there for the entire event to support novice players.  Bridge Vid has also made a dedicated mini website to answer some of the questions that you might have leading into it.


Give a BV membership as a Christmas gift!

Did you know that you can buy a membership to Bridge Vid as a gift for someone this Christmas?  It’s easy to do and with the short course programs being available for December there is no better time to get your bridge playing friends onto the site.    Simply get in touch with us by email ( and we can get this organised.  If you’re based in Australia we can even send through a personalise gift certificate for you to give to your friend. 



February short course ideas

We are starting to think about our next short couse topic to start in February 2017.  We are quite adamant that it will be a card play course but we are open to suggestions on exactly what it should be.  Our favourite idea so far is Endplays but we would love to know if you have another idea.

Please remember that the reboot your bridge short course (members can access anytime) looks into planning the play as declarer and we have a full set of daily dose features on suit combos.
