Continuing Bridge Lessons
December 13, 2022
I am a certified ACBL Certified Bridge Instructor, an ACBL Certified Bridge Director, as well as a Sapphire Life Master Bridge Player.
The Georgia Taylor Recreation Center, 1471 W. Clemmonsville Road in Winston-Salem
1:00 pm TO 3:00 pm, but I will stay until 4:00 pm for anyone who would like to just play some hands following the lesson.
I highly recommend staying to play to make sure you get lots of practice bidding and playing
SCHEDULE AND DESCRIPTIONS
Wednesday, January 11 - Review of Opening One of a Suit or 1 Notrump
How the partnership decides whether they will play the hand in a game or a part-score in either a suit or notrump contract
Wednesday, January 18 - Overcalls. This is a bid made by one of the opponents of the opening bidder.
I will discuss the requirements to make an overcall at the "one" level, as well as at higher levels over the opponents" bids in a suit or notrump opening bid. I will discuss the suit quality you should have, as well as how many cards you promise in the suit you bid. I will also discuss how you should respond to your partner's overcalls.
Wednesday, January 25 - Takeout Doubles
This is a double made by an over-caller asking their partner to bid and it shows a specific hand shape and point count. I will discuss hands where you may or may not make a takeout double. I will also explain how to respond to your partner when they make a takeout double.
Wednesday, February 1 - Negative Doubles
This is a double made by the responder to the Opener when their right-hand-opponent has made a bid. This is how our partner knows whether we have five or more cards in the suite that we bid, or if we only have four cards in the unbid suits. This is one of the most important conventions that a beginning bridge player must learn
