Class Descriptions

NT Responses with a balanced hand

Monday, June 14, 2021 at 1:00 PM

Level: Novice

Part 3 of NT responses will cover responding to 1NT when you have a balanced hand with no interest in a major suit (and no interest in playing in a minor suit, either)

Responding to Opening Major Suit Bids

Thursday, June 17, 2021 at 10:30 AM

Level: Novice

In this class, I'll review the basics of responding to partner's 1H or 1S opening bid. We'll discuss raising partner, bidding NT, and bidding a new suit, and when to use each.

Responding to 1NT with a Minor Suit

Monday, June 21, 2021 at 1:00 PM

Level: Novice to Intermediate

Part 4 of NT responses will discuss what do you when partner opens 1NT and you have a long minor suit.

TOPIC TBD

Thursday, June 24, 2021 at 10:30 AM

Level:

"Four-on-One" Shuffle and Deal

This class is a one-hour supervised play (AKA "Shuffle and Deal"). It's a little different from face-to-face Shuffle and Deal games in that you will not be sharing me with a lot of other tables. There is only one table in play, so you have exclusive access to me during play. I will answer questions as they come up, and can also critique your bidding and play and talk about the deal after it's played if warranted.

SIGNUP INSTRUCTIONS
Because of high demand and the difficulties in scheduling, I will no longer accept signups from solo players or pairs. My apologies, but the process is just too difficult trying to mesh everyone together. Please sign up as a group of four.
