New series of Monthly Advanced Bridge Seminars

Seminar 1: Partnership Bridge

With Michael Byrne

Come and take part in our NEW, INTERACTIVE bridge workshops, aimed at those playing at a higher level within clubs but can be enjoyed and appreciated by anyone wishing to meet and learn more from nationally renowned players.

This first session is being run by England international Michael Byrne, a professional teacher and coach and current member of the England open team. He will be looking at all aspects of partnership bridge, including ways to improve your partnership defence, slam bidding, competitive bidding and constructive bidding. 

You will learn why international players get tricky situations right at times when normal players often get them wrong and learn techniques not covered in the normal textbooks.
