Supervised Play for Advancing Players - Bridge Defense. Wednesdays, 2-4 pm.
You learn by doing. The supervised play series gives you a chance to do this. Each session starts with a 10-15 minute mini lesson on the topic of the day. Participants then play 8-12 hands based on this topic. After each hand is played, you can review a sheet of paper in the board that recaps the important points from the hand. The supervisor will mingle among the players to provide advice, answer questions and give more detailed explanations.
You play the hand at bridge about 25% of the time but defend about 50% of the time. Being a good defender is twice as important to your final result as being good at playing the contract. When on defense, you can give signals to your partner by the choice of which card you play. This an important aspect of defense. The more you tell each other about your hands, the more you play as a team rather than two individuals. The first 3 supervised play sessions will cover defensive signalling.
April 17 – Attitude Signals (when partner leads a suit)
April 24 – Discard & Suit Preference Signals (when you can't follow suit)
May 1 – Count Signals (when declarer leads a suit)
Partner makes an opening lead. Declarer plays from dummy. Now it is your turn. You are in the 3rd seat. How should you play? Later, declarer leads from his hand (or from dummy). You are the next to play. You are in the 2nd seat. How should you play? The next 4 sessions will cover 3rd seat and 2nd seat play.
May 15 – Defending Notrump in 3rd Seat
May 22 – Defending Notrump in 2nd Seat
May 29 – Defending Suit Contracts in 3rd Seat
June 5 – Defending Suit Contracts in 2nd Seat
Cost: $10 per session. You do not need a partner but your game will improve more if both you and your facorite partners take the sessions together. Defense is very much a partnership part of the game.
