Retirement Party for Marvel Heinsohn Saturday December 20

On Saturday December 20, we will host a retirement party for Marvel Heinsohn, who is disbanding The Bridge Club after some twenty-five years of operation.  The party will include some food being provided by us, and players are invited to bring side dishes to share as a pot luck.  The party will start at 11:00 AM to be followed by the usual open pairs game at 12:30.  Please come help us to honor Marvel for his long-time service to Denver bridge.

'Denver House of Cards' Absorbs 'The Bridge Club'

As of January 1, 2015, The Bridge Club, which has been operated by Marvel Heinsohn for some 25 years, will cease operations.  As most of you know, it has been operated on our premises in recent years in the western part of our space.  We will continue to operate the Saturday Open Pairs game at 12:30 PM, and Marvel will continue to direct the game for as long as he wishes.  In addition, we will do our best to rebuild open pair games in that space on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 10:30 AM opposite the limited games that we currently run.  A major advantage is that this will make these flighted games, and masterpoint awards in the open games will take into account the total number of tables in the two games.  We hope that you will continue to support us and bridge in general as these changes are put into effect.

Extra Masterpoints During December

During December, most of our games will pay extra masterpoints at no additional charge.  Featured this month will be seven StaC pair games paying silver points, seven charity pair games and four club championships.      

Keep in mind that our Monday 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.   


299'er Game Friday Mornings

We are now running a 299'er game on Friday mornings along with our open game.  The game is flighted (0-50, 50-200 and 200-299).  During November, there will be one Charity game and one Club Membership game, both of which pay additional masterpoints.  Come enjoy playing at a comfortable level in our state-of-the-art club.

Newcomer (0-40) and Limited Games

We now have three limited games for less-experienced players every week.  Monday mornings at 10:30 AM and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM feature games that are limited to players with fewer than forty masterpoints.  Both of these games are preceded by a free lesson by Chuck Goudey, for those interested.  Card fees for these games are only seven dollars. 

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

We also 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 Ernie and 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, Wednesday and Friday mornings and Monday and Wednesday evenings plus limited games on Tuesday (0-1250 MP)  and Thursday (0-1000 MP)  mornings.  We also have Newcomers 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.

$5 Tuesday Morning Open Pairs $5

Starting on Tuesday, January 6, we will run an open pairs game at 10:30 AM in the space currently occupied by The Bridge Club.  For January, card fees will be five dollars for this game, and lunch will be included.  In addition, masterpoint awards will benefit from the limited game in our regular space, which will add an average of twenty tables to the flighted event.  Come join us as we attempt to provide games for all players.

Next Sunday Team Game January 25

We will run our next two-session Sunday team game on January 25.  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
