Welcome to Duncan Bridge Center


Sun and Fun Sectional Canceled

Unexpected construction delays have caused the cancelation of the Fun and Sun Sectional.
Unit Championship rated points will be awarded for all regularly scheduled club games in the Coachella Valley.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

A Home of our Own

February 7, 2020

Dear Friends and Players,

This is not the message I had hoped to write today. Although we are very close to opening the new Duncan Bridge Center at the Wernick Family Building, we will not have all the county-required pieces in place before the "Sun and Fun Sectional" scheduled for February 14 & 15. We apologize to you, our guests and the Unit 533 Board of Directors. Unexpected construction delays have made this event impossible to host by that date.

DBC will hold its regularly scheduled games next week .To provide an opportunity to earn upgraded black points, the Unit 533 Board of Directors has scheduled Unit Games in Clubs competition at all venues that hold regularly scheduled games on February 14 & 15 throughout the Valley--both morning and afternoon sessions. Please make a reservation to ensure your seat for the 1:00 game; reservations will be held up to 10 minutes before. Reserve a Seat

I will notify you as soon as a date-certain is confirmed for the move. I do, however, expect that we can do it on or before February 23. There will be no Sunday games until after the move.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Beverly Hartin, President CVBF, and the CVBF Board of Directors

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.

$70 one day / $120 both days
