Details

This is a course of 24 lessons that you can work through at your own pace.

The lessons will introduce and explain some common conventions and give you some idea of the principles of match-point scoring. As ever with Vu-Bridge the hands focus on essential card-play skills, honing these so that users have the confidence to go out into the bridge world and not be intimidated. Defense gets just as much attention as declarer play, of course.

  • David Bird
  • Paul Bowyer
