SPECIAL TEAM GAME EACH MONTH!

                                        

SPECIAL SUNDAY TEAM GAMES

"Eight is Enough"
Players are either "3-point" players (2000+ Masterpoints), "2-point" players (500-2000 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!

DEFENSE!

Thursdays 9:00 - 11:15

     You will be a defender on HALF of the hands you plan, and good defense is a difference-maker!   In this class, you will learn the 9 principles of discarding, the keys to signaling, more advanced second and third hand plays and much more!  Practice hands each week.

 

Instructor: Jackie Altschuler

Dec 7 and Dec 14.

 

"Power Preempting" 

Saturday,  December 9, 9:15 - 11:30

     n this class, Jack will teach a different approach to modern preempting.  Use the losing trick count and the vulnerability to paint a picture for your partner.  Learn how to advance preempts.  Make the weak-two bid a more active part of your bidding arsenal.   Learn a different meaning for the 3NT opening bid.  
 

Instructor:   Jack BrawnerI

 "Balance relentlessly!"

Saturday,  December 16, 9:15 - 11:30

     There are three situations where accurate and relentless balancing can improve your score.  This is the expanded version of some "mini-lessons" Jack has given in the past.  A LARGE part of bridge consists not only of arriving at the best spot yourself, but also not allowing the opponents to be in their best spot!  This tactic is GUARANTEED to add percentage points to your score!
 

Instructor:   Jack Brawner

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.
