While Mike is at the Sydney Spring Nationals for the next two weeks, the Free Friday lesson wil be conducted by Sue Crompton. This week's lesson will be on Splinters - showing trump support and a shortage. It's a great tool for bidding slams and staying out of bad slams.
The lesson starts at 9:30am and is followed at 10am by the usual duplicate pairs. All welcome.
This event has a unique format with a scoring method which combines both Teams (IMPs) and Matchpoint (overtricks count) principles.
The winners were the OSIE Team:
Judy Osie, Witold Chylewski (Jun), Giselle Mundell, Avril Zets
Runners up were the DOBES Team:
Warren Dobes, Les Grewcock, Steven Bock, Kevin Davies
Third were the SMEE Team:
David Smee, Alexis Ngan, Julian Abel, Patrick Neary
This week Mike will be giving a great lesson for all players. The topic is "When is a Double for Penalty?".
He will also talk about Trap Passing - waiting for partner to double. So when is a pass forcing?
There will be lots for players of all levels, so please come along to East Lindfield this Friday 9.30am for the 30 minute free lesson. Everyone gets notes to take home.
No partner no problem just come along and you will get a game.
