The original outline for Defensive Carding Techniques was slated to go in subsequent order, Session 1 Introductory, Session 2 Advanced, and Session 3 False Carding +. Because some advanced players will be attending tournaments during the scheduled Session 2, it makes more sense to switch Sessions 1 & 2. Therefore the First Session, June 25, will offer the more complex material (see below), and the second Session will be for the Introduction interests. Session 3 will remain the same date. Any students who wish to switch the dates should note the change.
June 25th: Offers a more advanced approach to Defensive Carding with innovative techniques that are used at the higher levels of competitive bridge.
July 2nd: Introduction to Carding: Definitions, Purposes, Classifications, Basics, Protocol & Examples.
July 9th: An emphasis on hidden cards, suit preference drills and false carding to offer an advanced approach to deception and card reading with state-of-the-art techniques that are prominent in competitive duplicate circles.
