Newcomer Game w/mini-lesson:      

Each session begins with a mini-lesson for about 20 minutes – followed by a Newcomer Duplicate Game of 9 hands/boards. 

This is another educational opportunity so you can use any notes that you have -- even ask questions when you get "stuck".  

We do allow extra time to play the hands in the Newcomer Game

(10 + minutes per hand). 


At the end of each game, the winners will be awarded masterpoints.   Cost is $ 10.
