Journey to the Bowl

Pete and Juzz have both been playing bridge on most days this month but they haven’t played a single day together!  During this episode they discuss how playing in other partnerships can improve your game in different ways. It can be interesting to see how each player in the partnership approaches the same problem which can’t be seen if you are playing together.

– Journey to the bowl is a video series that follows the progress of Pete Hollands and Justin Mill on their Journey to the Bermuda Bowl in Lyon later this year.  Pete and Juzz will be representing Australia in the open division.

Next week’s featured lesson: The follow up to inverted minors (16 March)

Next week Pete will look into the continuations that can be used after an inverted minor raise. 

To get yourself ready for the lesson take a look at our featured lesson on inverted minors, a convention that allows you to constructively raise minor suits and continue a discussion to find the best game, slam or part score.

NEW SHORT COURSE: ENDPLAYS (MEMBERS)

Our latest short course on Endplay Technique is now live and running.   Players of all skill levels have shown a great appreciation of position, timing and the power of having your opponents play vulnerable suits for you.  The notes for the course are a little behind the videos but should be available within the next week or two.

 Port Fairy Folk Festival (we are away Wed – Mon)

We have noticed that many bridge players have other hobbies or interests where they run into bridge players.  For us, the Port Fairy Folk Festival seems to be the time of year that we run into different bridge player away from the tablet.  It seems as though many bridge players share a love of music and I’m sure that we will run into someone new this year.

One of the best things about bridge is the sense of community, you could walk into almost any bridge club around the world and feel at home.  Many lifelong (and long distance) friendships are developed from the game.

If you have a great story about running into someone who plays bridge in another setting or a story about the great community that bridge is we would love to hear it.
