These lessons cover most of the material in the EBU Continuing Bridge Course. It costs £10 per person per lesson to attend, and I will invoice you, approximately monthly after the lessons. You will be able to pay by bank transfer or Paypal. While I hope you will attend each lesson, you will only be charged for the lessons you attend.
The format of each lesson is a Zoom meeting to present and discuss the topic (about 30 minutes), and then some hands for you to play on BBO on the topic (around 6 hands), which we will then go over, using Zoom again.
There might also be some handouts and quizzes on each topic.
What do you need to join
You will need to be able to run Zoom and you will need to log in to BBO. You can do both these things on a PC/Laptop/Tablet or Smartphone. If you have two suitable devices, I suggest you use one to run Zoom, and another for BBO. Otherwise just use one device for both. We will start the lesson with Zoom, and then after the first part of the lesson you should log in to BBO, to play the hands.
