I am happy to inform you that the following themes have been implemented by Berend van den Bos and will be available in uBid before Feb 20 2017:
- Support Doubles and Redoubles
- New Minor Forcing
- Mixed Raises
- Responses to a forcing 1NT
- Inverted minors
- Roman Keycard Blackwood
- Serious 3NT
- Last Train
These themes are authored by Eric Rodwell and are based on a series of articles called The Bridge Topics that have been available for purchase on newinbridge.com.
NewInBridge changed its business model from a news site to focus on interactive e-learning services and ceased to sell the Topics.
Eric Rodwell received lots of positive feedback from those that have acquired the articles, and therefore took the initiative to get the Topics published in book form. This resulted in an unique collaboration between the publishing companies NewInBridge and Baron Barclay, the latter to publish the Book Eric's Rodwell Bidding Technique and NewInBridge to publish the themes in uBid.
Eric about this collection:
"I have selected 9 excellent topics for this first book that I know will have wide appeal, including two about conventions I invented: Support Doubles, and Serious 3NT. The Topics cover some very important areas of constructive bidding, competitive bidding, and slam bidding."
Hope you enjoy bidding on these themes which are available for uBid Premium users.
