Fall Class Schedule
Oct 4 Bidding /Intermediate Conventions -Sharpen your bridge playing skills while practicing your play. Each lesson includes the play of 8 hands illustrating that week’s topic. Conventions covered include: New minor forcing, 4th suit forcing, Cue bid limit raises, Help suit game tries, Jacoby 2NT, Michaels and unusual NT, Major transfers, Roman key card and Gerber. Class materials: instructor handouts. Instructor: Dalia Hernandez Mondays 9:30-11:30 a.m.
Jan 10 and 17 Join us for a special class on Lebensohl. Between Stayman, transfers and quantitative raises, constructive notrump bidding is overpowered… which encourages tough players to compete against notrump opening bids whenever they have a shapely hand. When the opponents compete against your notrump auctions, you need tools to deal with the interference… tools that let you find the right contract or punish the opponents. Lebensohl is the fundamental tool in dealing with interfering opponents… finding good contracts despite their interference or punishing them for getting in your way. This class teaches the basics of the Lebensohl convention in notrump auctions as well as Lebensohl applications in reverse auctions and in auctions starting with a weak two followed by a takeout double. Instructor: Rob Preece, Mondays 9:30-11:30 a.m.
