Fantastic Bridge Lessons in July
Special Bridge Classes: Learning Games with Kim Gilman and Zach Grossack
A note from Kim: After a successful trial run in June, my online "Learning Games" will be back in July.
In these classes you will play hands in a BBO tournament, but we go over each hand on Zoom after you play, so you learn as you go.
Before the game begins, we'll give you some tips and strategies for success — and you'll practice right away during the game!
To register for either of these series, please e-mail me at email@example.com.
For Advanced Beginners and Up ♦︎
Saturday mornings 9:30-11:30 AM, July 11, 18, 25
It's a Bidder's Game!
These lessons, taught by Kim, will include instruction on what to do when the other side opens: whether to step into the auction, and how to use the "Double" card.
I'll give you the latest rules on Overcalls and Takeout Doubles. Advance registration and payment for the 3-part series is required. Cost will be $45, plus $5 on BBO for each game.
For intermediate and advanced players ♠︎
Tuesday afternoons 3:00-5:00 PM, July 7, 14, 21
Declare These Hands with Zach
Multi-time national champion Zach Grossack is known as one of the best declarers in the bridge world.
Would you like to know how he plans his strategy for making 90% of his contracts…with overtricks?
Before the tournament, you'll hear Zach present useful bridge techniques on Zoom.
The tournament hands will be set up for you to practice the lesson. Between rounds, Zach will comment on how he would play each one.
You'll have a chance to ask questions, and receive his write-ups after the class. Cost will be $45 paid in advance, plus $5 on BBO for each game.
A new beginner game starting up on Wednesday nights with post-game discussion.
Co-hosted by Family Friendly Bridge Club and The DBC of Winchester. Registration opens at 4:45 PM on Wednesdays, early sign up encouraged. Any questions? Contact, Elizabeth < firstname.lastname@example.org>.
