For Really, Really New Players Only
Are you ready to jump into the exciting world of duplicate bridge? We have the game for you.
On Fridays we offer a game for players with zero to 10 masterpoints. Players will be allowed to consult their notes and to seek guidance from the game director about bidding and play.
It's a very relaxed game, with 12 to18 boards instead of the usual 24. That means there is plenty of time
for post-mortem discussion, which makes it a valuable real-timelearning experience.
No need to worry about being clobbered by "the big boys." No need to be embarrassed by a bid or a play. Just fun, and a little more learning.
And, of course, masterpoints for winners.
