Located in Vero Beach Florida, the Vero Beach Bridge Center is a member-owned bridge club. We host daily bridge games, duplicate bridge tournaments, bridge classes for all levels, celebrity speakers, and student games for new players which are all sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. In fact, the size of our club allows us to hold many restricted games for up and coming players, no need to swim with the sharks!
Pre-dealt boards for pair games mean no shuffling and hand records are available after each game, whether for the daily bridge play or on-site duplicate bridge tournaments. The use of Bridgemate II allows results to be ready immediately following the game.
We have one of the best duplicate bridge clubs in Florida, if not the nation.
We are currently ranked at #4 in North America for 2017 based on the number of tables of bridge played thus far!
I have taken down a lot of the older played hands, but have left up the bridge movies from class. More will be posted here from future classes. If you enjoy any of my movies here, many more by other authors can be found on www.bridgebase.com. Go to practice. Movies. Larry Cohen has two very good ones there, there are a couple of hundred others. Our last class of the season will be held on April 13.
LEad KatarAct against Notrump Contracts - Click fo movie after reading general idea below.
The lead of a King asks for partner's attitude about the lead. K=Asks Attitude therefore from AKx, you can lead KING and see if hits partner
The lead of an Ace asks partner to unblock an honor, failing that to give count, therefore from AKJT9, you can try the ACE and run the suit if partner unblocks the Queen. If partner gives count, you can guage whether to try drop declarer's Queen or wait for partner to get in to lead through declarer.
click on this story for a movie covering the card combinations we reviewed and or covered two Saturdays ago. Then, each of the combinations was included in one or more hands. This movie takes them out of the context of a hand to make them quicker to review. You can use this movie to review or to catchup. The December 15 class will pick up from here and coverr variations of these combinations and many more common combinations, most in the context of a full deal. . We will do other "stuff" also but this will be one of the major thrusts of this weeks class. We will also lay some foundation ( or review) basic defensive carding and why we might play one method versus another.
Hope to See You Saturday.
Making 4♠ on this deal (board 12, Fri afternoon open game) was worth 20.5 on a 23 top.
