BBO Movie link for this movie is Flannery


This is a very short BBO Movie, that will take 2 to 3 minutes at most to view. It is meant to be an introduction to the Flannery Convention. It moves forward by showing one typical Flannery opening hand, and discusses three potential responses to the opener, spending most of the time on the 2NT response. Defense to Flannery, other responses beyond 2NT are not discussed, and how playing Flannery alters other auctions is not discussed. The movie has a voice track, so you can sit back and simply listen, although there is written content as well. The movie also uses the "insert a hand" into the text area to show responder's hand at the end of the auction. Someone wanting a more detailed description of Flannery might need to google it (upon second thought, it might have been nice to provide a hyperlink in the movie to an in depth online description of the convention), but tthis presentation is quick to review for someone curious about what the Flannery Convention is.


This movie is clearly meant for people unfamiliar with Flannery, so that will probably cause some problems picking the audience you would recommend it too. For instance, many people advocate not teaching Flannery to beginners, and surely most advanced players know what Flannery is.
