INTERMEDIATE BRIDGE LESSONS
COMPETITIVE BIDDING

DOUBLES, OVERCALLS, and BALANCING

Beginning January 9

 

When the opponents open the bidding, do you know what to do?  Do you get into the auction?  What’s the best way to describe your hand?  How does partner (advancer) respond?

For six sessions we will cover the principles of bidding (reasonably) safely and sanely when the opponents open the bidding.  We will cover

  •  Takeout Doubles
  •  Overcalls
  •  Balancing — the little–discussed missing piece of the puzzle.

In this class, you will learn to make good takeout doubles and well as how to respond to them; you will learn the most effective overcalls; and you will learn to tie everything together in a coherent structure by understanding balancing.  You will also learn follow–up bidding after partner's action.

$60 for six classes.  All classes include an hour–long lesson, example hands to bid and play, and printed materials.  Classes will be on Tuesday from 4 to 6 beginning January 9.
