Saturday Nov 9th, 2019 A Learning Barometer Game Open Pairs 12:30 pm

The Saturday Learning Barometer Game

The PBC will be offering a 'Learning Barometer' format open pairs game at 12:30 PM on a Saturday, once a month.  Check the calendar for the date.  

- The boards are random and have not been  'fixed' in any way to illustrate a point.  Random does mean random.

- Anyone can come and play in the event.  But it is aimed at those who want to learn to be better bridge players.  That cannot be judged by how many masterpoints someone has.

- All pairs will BID and PLAY the same hand AT THE SAME TIME.  No forced bidding, no forced leads.  Do what you want.  In bridge lingo, this format where everyone plays the same board AT THE SAME TIME is called a 'barometer'.

- After everyone has finished playing the hand, we will put the hand up on the TV and discuss it.  Auction, opening lead, defense, and POTH by declarer.  Instant learning gratification!!!  You've GOT to like that!

- Then we will play the next board, same as above.

- After the round, we will announce the current standings for all pairs. 

- After the round is finished, the movement will depend on how many tables I have.  Either a Mitchell (NS stays at the same table) or a Howelll (everyone moves).  

- Just play bridge... AND THEN LEARN!

This game requires a lot of prep work.  Making a lot of boards, etc.  So if you plan to come, PLEASE, PLEASE let us know you are coming so we know how much work to do!

All for $7, $6 if you are a member of the PBC!

Pass the word to your bridge friends who want to learn to be a better bridge player.  Learning can't be more fun and less painless than this format.

We hope to see you there on a 'Learning Barometer' Saturday every month.
