When you interpret and visualise partner’s lead remember that you are also trying to picture all the things they can’t have!

Triple Dummy

Last week we ran the first Triple Dummy episode in over 6 months.  The latest episode features Justin Howard, Andy Hung, Peter Hollands and Laura Ginnan.  Topics that were discussed included the recent South West Pacific Teams and the fouled board in the Lavazza vs Milner final, BBO money bridge, teaching bridge to younger players and generally all things bridge.  Watch now (members and visitors) at


This week’s featured lesson:  Strategies in different formats of the game

This week Pete will take a look at how you might want to adjust your game based on the scoring format that you are playing, the match situation, length of matches and the competion format (Eg. Swiss, KO etc).  Tune in live at on Thursday morning (Melb time) at 11.00 to watch.



Our next short course program will begin on February 20.  This 10 lesson course will cover everything from the basic strategy through to how to build your game to keep endplays in mind.  Players of all skill levels will see improvement in their game and awareness of the cards upon completion of the Bridge Vid Endplays course.  If you are playing in the Gold Coast Congress we will also be running a Celebrity Speaker talk on the same topic on the Friday of the event from 9.00 – 9.45.
