SPECIAL TEAM GAME EACH MONTH!

                                        

SPECIAL SUNDAY TEAM GAMES

"Eight is Enough"
Players are either "3-point" players (1500+ Masterpoints), "2-point" players (500-1500 Masterpoints), or "1-point" players (less than 500 points).  No team of four can have more the EIGHT points worth of players, so the teams will be mixed.  This is a FUN event enjoyed by all and is held the last Sunday of the month.

"Handicapped" team games!

When the team match is created, the team with fewer masterpoints is assigned a handicap -- imps are added to their score!  It makes the results interesting, and "C" teams have won this event on a regular basis.  We are now having two handicapped team games per month.

***  Make plans to play on  Sundays!  ***

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.

"Learn to Play Bridge!"

Saturdays, 9:15 - 11:30

 

Tony Cipolla will be teaching new players how to play bridge.   Bridge is a hobby that you can enjoy at any age!  The Alzheimer’s Foundation specifically recommends bridge as a fabulous hobby for keeping your min active.  You are never too old to learn, and while you can play right away, bridge is also a card game where you will never stop learning!  This course is recommended for both the NEW play and the player who has played a little bit OR a long time ago, since the game has evolved over the years (and continues to do so)

Instructor:  Tony Cipolla
Classes begin October 15!

 

Play, and learn!"

Thursdays 9:15 - 11:30

 

This is a "Take Two" of a popular class that Jack did before.  What are the thought processes of the experienced player?  Truly random hands will be played by the class, and then Jack will lead a short discussion of how the hand could be bid, played, or defended.   Every hand is an adventure and a surprise, but they all hold lessons.

  Bring your favorite partner, or just show up!
Instructor: Jack Brawner
October 5, 19, and 26!

 

 

"Advanced Bidding Tips"

Saturdays 9:15 - 11:30

 

This is a class for the advanced player.   On October 7th, we will discuss minor suit advances (including several versions of "criss-cross" that are out there), two-way new minor forcing and it's XYZ cousin, the Wolff signoff, the advantages of the "medium" notrump, McCabe, BOGUST, and more!  On October 21st, we will move to the back of the card and talk about advancing the balancing notrump, advancing your partner's overcall (including transfer advances), some special doubles, bidding over the opponents' takeout double, kickback, and maybe more!  On October 28th, we will have an in-depth discussion of defense, advanced defensive carding, and a lesson on "how to squeeze or endplay your opponents without knowing how you did it". 
(Some of this is a repeat of the experimental summer class; most of it is not.)
Instructor:   Jack Brawner

 

 

((ALL LESSONS ARE $15 per session for members and $17/session for non-members.  You do not need to register OR have a partner – just show up!))

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.
