Lessons for the Advancing Bridge Player

♠   ♣ 

TWO SPECIAL SEMINARS THIS MONTH! 

♠   ♣ 

Saturday, August 13th, 9:00am- 11:15am

"Bid, Pass, or Double?"

     Slam bidding is fun and exciting.   Game bidding is important.  But the REAL difference in bidding between the pair who consistently does well and the rest of us is the abilith to make good decisions on part-score competitive auctions.   When should I bid one more?  When should I balance?  When should I double them?  When should I just let them play it.  Jack will take you through the critical components of the decision-making process, and your scores WILL improve!  :-)

Saturday, August 27th, 9:00am- 11:15am

"Modern Preempting"

     Preemption is the "great equalizer" in bridge.  Those who preempt are forcing the opponents to make a guess -- and sometimes, no matter who they are, they are going to guess wrong.  There is also a risk in preempting -- what will your partner expect, and how safe are you at different levels and vulnerabilities.  If you think you might be ready to move beyond "two of the top three honors" and/or the "rule of two and three" and start making life more miserable for your opponents, come and learn a fully developed system of DISCIPLINED AGGRESSIVENESS that will make you a more successful bridge player!

     

 
NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER
NAPLES BRIDGE CENTER

Welcome to the Premier Bridge Club in Naples, Florida

The Naples Bridge Center has a long history of serving the bridge-playing community with games and education, dating back to 1970. As a member-owned, non-profit organization it provides a premier environment for both learning and playing bridge. Visitors are always welcome.  Classes are constantly being offered, and there are multiple games every day!

All games are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) and directed by a staff of professionals.  Easily reached from all areas of Collier County, the NBC features the nicest playing conditions in Southwest Florida.  We plan to expand both the parking and the building in 2016 and 2017!

We are located at 5865 Golden Gate Parkway Naples, FL. 34116, just off I-75 at exit 105 and less than five miles from US 41. 

For more information call (239) 455-4445 or e-mail us (use the "contact us" link along the left hand side or send directly to info@naplesbridge.com).

 

Special games

 

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

     Please notice there are some "NAP" games this month.  North American Pair games are a fun event.   Qualifcation at the club level means that a pair may go to the District Final and possibly win a free trip to the Nationals  in your category, representing Florida.  ((I have done this seven times, and it's a lot of fun.... Jack)).  Even if you have no desires to go to the District 9 Finals, this is the only way you can earn RED POINTS at the club level.  And, just like the STAC games, these games are extra points (RED points!) and no extra money.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

     September 26 through October 2nd, the club will be closed for the Naples Regional.  We hope that everyone does well representing the home club at the Regional.  :-)

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

     The day after the Regional ends, Larry Cohen will be coming to our club for a full day seminar.  October 3rd, beginning 9AM.  $80 for the day (lunch will be included), and the afternoon game will be closed as well.  More details about how to register, etc., will be forthcoming.   

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

     October 21 - 23, we will be hosting our very own 499er (Non-Life Master) Sectional!    Make your plans soon!  :-)

WE HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE! CLICK HERE TO OPEN IT!

Our facebook page is new, and there isn't much on it yet.

I will use it for news and occasional announcements.  We can also use it to discuss interesting hands and bidding, and anything else bridge related.  We will NOT use it for political discussions, gossip, etc.  :-)   I think everyone understands why.  

I would especially love it if some of you can post some pictures and bridge news on the site.

If you want to use the facebook page to ask about a hand, I will try to answer as often as time permits.  Perhaps some of out other experienced players will help out, as well.
