Lesson 2

  • Jack will introduce the bidding where you decide which suit will be trumps or whether to play without trumps. We then play out the cards.

Message from Jack Stocken:

Bridge is one of the world’s greatest games played by millions of people. It combines logic and numeracy skills with great sociability and enjoyment. No knowledge of card games is necessary to join this course and it really is for complete beginners although if you learnt in the distant past you are welcome to join too. I have been teaching bridge for 20 years and will guide you through the game of bridge at a gentle pace, as well as making the course fun and interactive. Once you have started playing bridge there will be no looking back!

    1. Jack Stocken

      Hi Penelope
      I am sorry that you are having a problem with the practice hands for Mini Bridge. The link is https://www.bridgebase.com/edu/minibridge/ and it works fine on my Ipad and computer. Have you tried the link on a different device like a laptop or computer?

    2. Penelope Todrick
