EXTRA POINT GAMES ALL MONTH LONG!
LOOK AT THE CALENDAR! NEARLY EVERY GAME OFFERS EXTRA POINTS!
The Naples Bridge Center has a long history of serving the bridge-playing community with games and education, dating back to 1970. As a member-owned, non-profit organization it provides a premier environment for both learning and playing bridge. Visitors are always welcome. Classes are constantly being offered, and there are multiple games every day!
All games are sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) and directed by a staff of professionals. Easily reached from all areas of Collier County, the NBC features the nicest playing conditions in Southwest Florida. Parking lot expansion is in progress, and we hope to expand the building within the next year!
We are located at 5865 Golden Gate Parkway Naples, FL. 34116, just off I-75 at exit 105 and less than five miles from US 41.

BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 29th (nine weeks)
****Learn to play bridge****
Learn to play the greatest game ever invented! Experienced instructor Tony Cipolla will be teaching the first of the ACBL's 9-week bridge series. Play bridge right from the very first lesson, and learn as you go!
Handouts provided, but buying the text book is recommended. Bridge is a game you can enjoy your entire life, rain or shine!
ALSO SATURDAYS (9:00am)
BEGINNING OCTOBER 6th -- EIGHT WEEKS
****Develop Your Bidding Judgment****
Improve your bidding in all areas as we discuss how your hand changes in value during the auction. Bids by partner and the opponents improve or devalue your hand continuously. Topics include "But partner I had 16 points" and "How could I pass with 14 points?" and so much more! Join Jackie for six weeks on Saturday mornings starting the first week in October!
**NOTE: Jackie will be out of town for a couple of classes, so this class will have two weeks turned over to Jack Brawner for two special stand-alone seminars along the same line...
October 13th: "The art of balancing". Balancing -- not selling out to the opponents -- but doing so safely -- is *guaranteed* to improve your scores!
November 10th: "Bid, pass, or double?" A systemic approach to those critical decisions. Don't just guess!
THURSDAYS @9:00am, ONGOING
PLAY AND LEARN WITH JACK
AT THIS POPULAR AND ONGOING CLASS, WE PLAY RANDOM HANDS AND THEN DISCUSS THEM. EVERY HAND IS A PUZZLE AND A LESSON. BIDDING, JUDGMENT, PLAY, DEFENSE, ETC. -- IT ALL COMES UP, BUT NOBODY (including the teacher!) KNOWS WHEN!
TEACHER: JACK BRAWNER
((ALL LESSONS ARE $15 per session for members and $17/session for non-members. You do not need to register OR have a partner – just show up!))
This homemade video should help everyone with the new website! It's about 5 minutes long. :-)

Our facebook page is new, and there isn't much on it yet.
I will use it for news and occasional announcements. We can also use it to discuss interesting hands and bidding, and anything else bridge related. We will NOT use it for political discussions, gossip, etc. :-) I think everyone understands why.
I would especially love it if some of you can post some pictures and bridge news on the site.
If you want to use the facebook page to ask about a hand, I will try to answer as often as time permits. Perhaps some of out other experienced players will help out, as well.
