First three classes
I teach (and have done so for many years) Learn Bridge in a Weekend in London. Three tables is very typical. It goes like this. 10.30am Deal out cards, count points. Introduce trick taking and trumps if they don't know this (10 mins?) Introduce the concepts of declarer ...
EBU Summer Meeting
Re: Summer Meeting I think there IS a desire to have a summer meeting but why in a fixed venue? Perhaps it could like Party Congresses go round the country in a 3-5 year rotation. Yes, more work setting it up but this could be rewarded by a renewed buzz ...
EBU Summer Meeting
Re: Eastbourne and Seniors Not everyone who is eligible to play in senior only events is interested in playing them. It seems an unnecessary restriction especially as the seniors have their own congress at the same venue a month before. And the playing of the midweek events away from the ...

Looking for autobridge refills
Would it be worth archiving them online somewhere, and eventually by interested parties making submissions complete a full set?
New, simple, more accurate rating system.
The EBU system is on the whole accurate, fair, well-regarded and popular. It has been running quite a few years now. It is very scalable (could be the basis of a world system). It is also quite easy to understand. As you can imagine though, there are always those who ...
My Journey in Bridge
Whenever you engage new players, remember they want to PLAY the game not LEARN the game. As a teacher I tend to start with an hour's worth of mini bridge just to get the mechanical side of card play sorted - tricks, trumps, whose turn it is, why bridge has ...
