Jim Matthewslong-time sanctioned duplicate bridge competitor and familiar face in Unit 533 has passed away. Jim's competitive spirit was coupled with a mutual respect for every opponent and a wry sense of humor. Jim favorite line was, "don't make six partner," as he tabled the dummy. His deviled eggs were legendary. Jim is survived by his wife, Charlene.

February 10, Workshop from 9:00AM to noon, Lunch immediately following!

 "THE GORILLA AT THE TABLE FRIEND OR FOE?"   Workshop and Lunch  $55.00 


Bridge is a game of probabilities. Guidelines are often based on mathematical probabilities and are useful to enhance the odds of success - but there are no guarantees. 

The guidelines we routinely rely on during a hand of bridge may appear to help with decisions in choosing a bid, taking tricks as declarer, and defending a contract, but actually may be an illusion of what we see. Look for that invisible gorilla to help with judgment in deciding whether the guideline is useful or should be avoided. 

The Gorilla just may be our friend! When we see the gorilla at the table, think twice ... it may not be best to follow the maxims! 

The Monroe’s have received high marks for this workshop.  You will not want to miss it!

Robert Todd at DBC March 2nd & 3rd

We are very pleased to host Robert Todd again at DBC.  Robert is one of the most exciting bridge teachers working today.  Instead of teaching endless conventions, he concentrates on how to think, evaluate, and strategize at the bridge table.  His concepts will open up new worlds for highly skilled players and novices alike.  Robert is a professional bridge player and teacher from Tallahassee, FL and the founder of Adventures in Bridge, Inc.  Those of you who attended his workshops last year, know that this is a DO NOT MISS EVENT!


9:00 AM to NOON
Monday, March 2 "Finding Fits"
Depending on the auction, Responder has a variety of bidding tools to discover a fit.  We will look at these tools, which can vary dramatically based on both Opener's and the opponents' bidding!
Tuesday, March 3 "Trump Suit Management"
Our trump suit can be used to accomplish many goals.  To manage our trump suit properly we must be careful to understand card combinations, transportation, safety plays, ruffing losers and keeping control of the hand.
