THE POWER OF PRE-EMPTS
Tuesday's 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM
AUGUST 4, 11, 18, 25

Preempting is one of the most effective strategies at the bridge table. When used appropriately, it serves at least two important purposes: it shuts out the bidding space of your opponents; and, it conveys information about your hand to your partner.  We will discuss the following topics in the area of preempts:

  • Preempts at the 2, 3 and 4 level
  • Preempts in the first, second and third seat
  • Impact of vulnerability on preempts
  • Responding to partner’s preempts
  • Managing the auction after opponent’s preempts

So, learn all about preempts over four lessons.  when you prepay for the lessons, you are automatically registered.

(FYI: When you pay for all lessons upfront, we pay less in commissions to PayPal – so, if you intend to take all the lessons, we would be grateful if you use this option).

Power of Pre-empts
You will receive an invitation and a link to lessons that you have paid for.
