SATURDAY (9:00AM), AUGUST 18th
****LOSING TRICK COUNT & PREEMPTING****
The "losing trick count" (LTC) is a hot topic right now.
Jack has been using and teaching LTC for years, but only for the unbalanced hands. In this one class, you will learn the simplified LTC and how to quickly and easily calculate it. You will also learn to preempt both more accurately AND more often, and you will learn some improved-but-still-easy ways to advance your partner's preempts.
Preemption is the great equalizer!
SATURDAYS (9:00am), BEGINNING AUGUST 25th -- SIX WEEKS
For every hand you declare, you will defend TWO! Defense is IMPORTANT. This is Jackie Altschuler's description of her excellent defense class:
"Learn the 9 Principles of Discarding and 4 Specifics of Signaling. Discover what is the best card to play as Second and Third Hand. Learn to Count Declarer's Tricks and when to Hold Up and when to win, and much, much more! Practice Hands Every Week"
Teacher: Jackie Altschuler
THURSDAYS @9:00am, ONGOING
PLAY AND LEARN WITH JACK
AT THIS POPULAR AND ONGOING CLASS, WE PLAY RANDOM HANDS AND THEN DISCUSS THEM. EVERY HAND IS A PUZZLE AND A LESSON. BIDDING, JUDGMENT, PLAY, DEFENSE, ETC. -- IT ALL COMES UP, BUT NOBODY (including the teacher!) KNOWS WHEN!
TEACHER: 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!))
This homemade video should help everyone with the new website! It's about 5 minutes long. :-)

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.
