Robert Teaches Balancing Seat Bidding
$75.00 For Series
Webinars are 1hr in duration with possible 30 min Q&A. All times are 2PM Eastern.
JAN 30 (Monday) - Hand Re-Evaluation in the Balancing Seat - When we are considering making a bid in the balancing seat we must determine if we should bid and if we do, how well our hand is likely to play. We evaluate our hand differently in this balancing seat because we often know where most of the opponent’s values are located. Here we discuss how to decide when to bid in these balancing situations! Recorded Webinar
FEB 5 (Sunday) - Balancing NT and Follow-up Bids - In the balancing seat we usually “borrow a king” from our partner. Since NT bids are precisely defined this point change to our hand dramatically affects our bidding. Here we look at our balancing NT bids and the follow-up bidding that partner makes. Recorded Webinar
FEB 13 (Monday) - Balancing Overcalls and Doubles - When we come back into the bidding, in the balancing seat, our most common actions are an overcall or takeout double. Here we look at how to use these bidding tools and most importantly, how these change in the balancing seat.
FEB 19 (Sunday) - Balancing with 2-Suited Hands - When we have a 2-suited hand we have a variety of tools for describing our hand in the direct seat. Here we look at how these change in the balancing seat. This is a very important set of agreements.
Feb 27 (Monday) - Balancing Seat Jump-Overcalls and Follow-ups - In the balancing seat we do not make weak bids — if we have a weak hand we just pass the hand out. Given this, we can use jump overcalls differently in the balancing seat. Here we look at how we vary our bidding in the balancing seat. We also take a look at how Advancer uses their follow-up bidding tools.
