Upgraded Club Championship Tuesday Feb 3

On Tuesday morning February 3, we will hold an upgraded club championship in both the Open Pairs game and the 0-1500 game.  Both of these games will be 100% Sectionally Rated, meaning that we will award the most masterpoints that we can in any of our games.  Since we usually have around thirty tables, the awards should be spectacular.  Come join us and compete for top prizes.

Extra Masterpoints During January

During January, nearly all of our games will pay extra masterpoints at no additional charge.  Featured this month will be twenty-two Junior Fund pair games, two club championships, and a Grand National Qualifying two-session team game.      

Keep in mind that our Monday morning, Tuesday morning, Wednesday evening and Friday morning open pair games use the table count from the concurrent I/N games to add additional masterpoints.  Card fees are ten dollars per person ($9.50 with an account) for most pair games; newcomer games are less.  Lunch is served during all of our morning games.  Enjoy duplicate bridge in our state-of-the-art club and earn the maximum number of masterpoints allowable.   

 

Limited Masterpoint Games

Starting in January, we will open our Monday morning and Wednesday evening games to players with fewer than 100 masterpoints.  Both of these games will still be preceded by a free lesson by Chuck Goudey, for those interested.  Card fees for these games will still be only seven dollars. 

We also have a 299'er game on Friday mornings.  This game is flighted and is also preceded by a free lesson by Chuck Goudey.

We run 0-1500 games on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 AM for slightly more experienced players.  The Thursday games are preceded by free lessons by Blair Young. 

These games are a great way for newer players to ease into duplicate bridge. 

 

Duplicate Bridge in a Friendly Atmosphere at DHOC

The club is owned and operated by Steve Wainz and Paul Ossip.  We pledge to do our best to continue the tradition of a friendly atmosphere for enjoyable duplicate bridge.  In addition, we will run all games with a non-playing director except when necessary to fill out the movement or in case of emergency (such as someone having to leave in the middle of a game).

In our new location, we will serve a light lunch during our morning games.  Card fees will be ten dollars per game ($9.50 if you have an account with us) for most games. 

We have open games Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and Monday and Wednesday evenings plus limited games on Tuesday (0-1500 MP)  and Thursday (0-1500 MP)  mornings.  We also have 99'er games on Monday mornings and Wednesday evenings and a 299'er game on Friday mornings.  All morning games start at 10:30 AM and evening games at 6:30 PM.  Please feel free to offer your comments and suggestions.

Beginning and Intermediate Bridge Lessons

 

Paul Ossip will begin a five-week course on basic defense techniques beginning on January 6.  The classes will be given on five consecutive Tuesday evenings, and the cost will be fifty dollars per person for the series.  The course is designed for pre-intermediate and intermediate players who would like to improve their skills for this most difficult part of the game.

About Denver House of Cards
About Denver House of Cards

Denver House of Cards is one of the premier bridge clubs in the Denver area.  We pride ourselves on having well-directed and friendly duplicate bridge games.  We are a "zero tolerance" club. 

DHC offers a variety of open and limited games for the enjoyment of our players.  There is also a social game on Friday evenings for which dinner is served at 6:00 p.m. and the play begins at 6:30 p.m.  We also offer special games on many weekends.  Our two-session Swiss Team events are always fun and include a catered dinner.

Please come and enjoy our hospitality and great bridge competition soon!

$5 Morning Open Pairs $5

Since January 6, we have been running an open pairs game on Tuesday mornings at 10:30 AM in the space formerly occupied by The Bridge Club.  For January, card fees are only five dollars for this game, and lunch is included.  Starting in February, this game will be our normal ten dollars, but we will start another open pairs game on Thursday mornings at 10:30 AM that will be only five dollars for that month and will include lunch.  The first Thursday open pairs will be on February 5.  In addition, masterpoint awards benefit from the limited games in our regular space, which add ten to twenty tables or more to the flighted events.  Come join us as we attempt to provide games for all players.

Next Sunday Team Game March 8

We have cancelled our January 25 team game and will attempt to run run our next two-session Sunday team game on March 8.  This will be a Grand National Team Qualifier, which means that extra masterpoints can be earned, half of which will be red.  As usual, we will divide the game into two flights, an open flight and a limited flight which will exclude all teams with more than 6000 total masterpoints and all players with more than 2500 points.  There will be an open flight only if at least six teams sign up for that category.  A catered dinner will be served between the two sessions.

Bridgemate Wireless Scoring
