$75.00 For Series
Webinars are 1hr in duration with possible 30 min Q&A. All times are 2PM Eastern.
JUL 3 (Monday) - Difficult Takeout Double Decisions - A takeout double is one of the ways that we can compete in the bidding. But in many situations we have choices — a takeout double or another call. Here we look at these situations and discuss what to think about when making our decisions. (Recorded)
JUL 10 (Monday) - Strange Negative Doubles - Negative Doubles are more complicated than you think. Here we look at some of the more interesting shapes that you can have for making a Negative Double — and the important follow-up bidding that lets us survive the auction. (Recorded)
JUL 24 (Monday) - Advancers Doubles -- Not Enough Space - As the 4th player to bid the auction often gets high before we can get a word in edgewise. Double is going to be the favorite bid in many auctions. We look at how we might need to use a double here in some unusual ways. (Recorded)
JUL 30 (Sunday) - Opener's Doubles - Support, Re-opening, High Level, etc. - Opener does not want to be left out of the double game. We look at times when the Opener should make a double and some modern agreements about what these doubles show.
AUG 6 (Sunday) - Difficult Later Doubles - Balancing, Scrambling - The further the auction progresses the less clear we are about what a double means. Here we look at doubles later in the bidding and make sure we know if they are takeout, penalty, card showing, or something else. (Recorded)
