About the Tutorials

All sessions last between 2.45 to 3.15 hours. 
Play & Learn Sessions are available for any standard; pre-set hands
are played by the students and discussed afterwards in Open Forum.
The main focus is on dummy play and defence.

Hand analyses are given out at the end.

Tutorials start with an interactive presentation, lasting up to one hour,
followed by the students playing pre-set, topic related hands.
Presentation notes and hand analyses are given out at the end.

Although each tutorial focuses primarily on the topic being discussed,
many other issues arise during the presentation and play.
