January 8 - Bidding practice: No Trump Auctions
During this class we will bid on paper many No Trump auctions, where you will be able to reinforce your understanding of Stayman, Jacoby Transfers, Texas Transfers, Slam bidding and much more.
January 15 – Let’s take more tricks in No Trump Contracts
Learn to count winners, make a plan, know how long to hold up and when to take a trick. Identify the safe hand and the dangerous opponent. Get clues from the bidding.
January 22 – Bidding Practice: Opener’s and Responder’s Rebids
During this class you and your partner will bid several auctions where you must decide whether a bid is forcing and the level of your rebid based on your point count. Usually we have no problem knowing how to open the bidding and how to respond after the opening. Where things get tricky are the next bids. This will expose you to many situations which come up regularly during the bidding.
January 29 – Let’s take more tricks in Suit Contracts
This time we are counting our losers. Are dummy’s trumps helpful in giving me a ruff? Do I have extra winners in the dummy that might help me rid of losers in my hand? What about a long suit in dummy? Can I establish it to make the little cards in that suit good? When and how to take a finesse!
