During the Copenhagen Bridge Invitational 2015 a camera crew shot many hours of film to be used in the future both to create interest for the Copenhagen Bridge Invitational and to promote bridge in general to a broader crowd.
The first video to be released is a video introducing the CBI to sponsors, future participants and to give the many inhabitants of the bridge world who were not able to participate themselves a glimpse of the atmosphere surrounding the CBI.
There are more videos to come, including interviews with Gus Hansen, Dennis Bilde and His Royal Highness the Prince Consort of Denmark.
