Weak Two-Bid Classes

Hurd Baruch will teach two classes on weak two openings.

Oct. 9 (Wed) 10 a.m. Opening preempts are a very potent weapon which all players need to use, and be able to respond to when partner uses them, in accordance with their partnership agreement. The potential style ranges from conservative to “reckless.” Differences in style are reflected in different understandings about how many trumps are required, how many HCP are required, and how various factors should be taken into account—vulnerability, seat position, strength of the trump suit, presence of a void, etc. This class will present the conservative approach, which partnerships can by agreement loosen to add more grief for opponents (at more risk to themselves).

Oct. 16 (Wed) 10 a.m. Partner has opened with a weak 2-bid. Do you know what he has for his bid in each opening position, NV and VUL? (You would if you and he had attended the first class on opening weak 2-bids.) And how does it affect your thinking if your RHO now passes, or doubles, or overcalls in a suit? Do you have a framework for deciding what you should do next—further the preempt, bid your own suit, or explore for game, or perhaps double your opponents’ bid? If you haven’t already thought these issues through, this class will help you.

Each class will last approximately 1 hour, and will include handouts. $10/class. Classes taught at our regular location at Streams in the Desert Lutheran Church. Please register with Kathy Parker using this form:
