We are sure our next workshop on the topic of responding to and bidding over pre-empts will be just as much fun.

Dendy Park Bridge has some upcoming intermediate classes to help improve your game and get in sync with your partner.
Responder bidding on the second round is a difficult task. Often the denomination and level of aspiration for the partnership is unclear. It is imperative that as a partnership we understand our bidding framework bounds and what it allows, otherwise our auctions can run off the rails very quickly.
These two workshops aim to cover how to handle the bidding as responder with weak, intermediate and strong hands in non-fit auctions. Each workshop has lecture notes and practise play hands to reinforce learning.

 Responder Bidding: Weak & Invitational Hands
Covers how to handle those awkward rebids without a fit and 6-9 or 10-12 points.
Saturday 25 October: 10am – noon
Instructor: Ben Kingham
Cost: $20 per person (notes provided)

 Responder Bidding: Strong Hands
Covering how to handle the auction with strong hands 13+ that haven't yet found a fit.
