On Sunday 17 March at Gipsy Hill Hotel, Exeter, Laura will run an advanced session for regular competition-level partnerships. The workshop is split into two sessions. First a duplicate session of 20/22 boards, followed by bidding analysis for each board with handouts and audience participation. This is a great opportunity to revise your game in line with current thinking. Players should be county standard (NGS 9+). The DBA is subsidising this workshop so the cost to DBA members is only £15. To book a place, please email Maureen Dalton [email protected] with your EBU rank and grade. Please pay the DBA via BACS, sort code 30-96-68, account no 01010562.
