Lessons for the Advancing Bridge Player

♠   ♣ 

SPECIAL SEMINARS THIS MONTH -- GET READY FOR THE NAPLES REGIONAL! 

♠   ♣ 

Saturday, September 10th, 9:00am- 11:15am

"Opening Leads"

     For every hand you PLAY (as declarer), you will DEFEND twice!  And the ONLY advantage defenders have is that they get to go first.  The opening lead is vitally important.  Jackie will be teaching on of her favorite seminars on this day.  Good opening leaders are consistent winners, and vice versa.

Saturday, September 17th, 9:00am- 11:15am

"Penalty Doubles"

     Doubles are confusing, because they are used so often and can mean different things.  When is a double "negative"? (Or takeout, or responsive, or support, or balancing, or reopening, or....)  Sometimes we can forget that the original (and primary?) meaning for a double is PENALTY.  If we don't penalize the opponents, they will walk all over us in the bidding.  Jackie will help the players with this important concept.

Saturday, September 24th, 9:00am- 11:15am

"Team Tactics"

     These days, at tournaments, most of the points awarded in team games such as the bracketed knockouts.  But team game tactics are different than matchpoint (pairs) tactics.  Jack will teach some team game techniques (and secret tricks) that will help our Naples Bridge Center players bring home bucketloads of points from the tournaments!

Thursdays -- 9/1, 9/8, and 9/15 9am- 11:15am

"Interactive Play"

     Jackie's popular "Interactive Play" class -- where the hands are pre-dealt and each hand has a lesson attached -- is back!  The last series was a bit advanced; this series is aimed at the newer-but-not-brand-new player.   A topic is discussed, and then the hands are bid & played so that the newer player can learn about planning in both the bidding AND in the play & defense of a hand.  A great deal of bridge is not just learning the next or latest convention(s), but HOW to think at the table.  This class is designed to help with this critical aspect of your bridge development. 

     

 

 

     

 
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 that EVERY team game this month is a "GNT" game.  Grand National Team 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.  Even if you have no desires to go to the District 9 Finals, this is a 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!

      Larry Cohen will be coming to our club for a full day seminar -- November 3rd, beginning 9AM.  $80 for the day (lunch will be included), and the games 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.
