This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

February 7

Fearless Super Bowl Predictions

 

You may not be aware that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have never lost a Super Bowl game.

 

I predict that again this year the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not lose a Super Bowl Game.

 

What does it take to be a winning team? While we may not be sure as it relates to football, we can offer some advice regarding bridge. On this coming Thursday, February 11 at 6:30, we are having both an open and 499er STAC team game. Before the game, at 6:00, we will be sharing the secrets of how to play and win team games. So, come to the game early, enjoy a glass of wine and a dessert and gain some knowledge that will help you in future team games, including the Manatee regional which takes place the following week.

 

It has never snowed at a Super Bowl and I predict that it will not snow at the Super Bowl again this year.

 

Did you know that Audrey Grant comes from Canada where there is a lot of snow?

 

However, she will be in sunny Florida March 1-2 when she will be presenting a 2-day festival. Day One will cover How to Take a Successful Finesse more than 50% of the time. On Day Two, she will discuss Modern Hand Valuation. Check out the details under the Seminars tab at www.stpetebridge.org and sign up at the club this week.

 

You may be surprised to learn that the techniques she teaches on Day One do not include “Peeking!”

 

I predict that you will find that there is life after football is over.

The major reason for this fearless prediction is that there are many wonderful bridge activities this coming week, including many STAC games that offer silver points:

 

Monday at 9:30 – 0-20 Game
