There are some misconceptions around defining a card as played. A common one is “declarer can take back a tabled card”. Matthew McManus, one of Australia’s leading directors has written an elegant article for e-congress news on the topic of when is a card played. E-congress news has kindly allowed us to publish that article, which is attached.
On Fridays and Saturdays in August, Anita Curtis, one of our popular teachers is conducting five lessons for improving players. The lessons are at 2 pm on Friday afternoon and then repeated on the Saturday morning at 10:15 am.
Covering topics from bidding to declarer play and defense the lessons bring together the elements that bring about sound bridge play.
