$75.00 For Series
Webinars are 1hr in duration with possible 30m Q&A. All times are 2PM Eastern.
Sep 12 - Concealing Cards from the Opponents - Play & Defense. When we follow to a trick with an honor card, either as a Declarer or Defender, we communicate information to the opponents. This information is not only in the card we played, but we also give them information about cards we have not played -- both explicitly and implicitly. Here we look at which cards we should play in a variety of different situations and how we can draw information from partner’s cards and the opponent's cards. Recorded Webinar
Sep 19 - Interpreting Opening Leads -- Why Lead What. When the opponent's lead a suit you know a good amount about their holding in that particular suit. You can infer things about their length based on the spot card they lead as well as their honor holds. But you can infer a lot of information about their hand from what they don't lead. Like why didn't they lead the suit they bid? Why didn't they lead their partner's suit? Here we look at how to make use of all of this information. Recorded Webinar
Sep 26 - No webinar.
Oct 3 - Ruffing Losers -- Dummy, Hand, Crossruff, etc. In a trump contract, ruffing your losers is one of the most powerful declarer play tools available. Here we look at times when we ruff in partner's hand -- normally the short trump side. We also look at other times when we may choose to ruff in our hand, setting up the dummy. Finally, we look at the all-out ruffing effort of the crossruff! Recorded Webinar
Oct 10 - Blocking their Suits and Unblocking Ours. Getting stuck in one hand when you have winners in your partner's hand is extremely frustrating. Whether we are the Declarer or a Defender learning to unblock a suit is an important skill. But when it comes to blocking and unblocking a suit there is also a skill/art form to getting the opponents to block the suit. Here we look at how to work on both of these situations.
Oct 17 - Judgment in Card Play. We make a lot of decisions on every bridge hand. Judgment is most often talked about in the bidding, but you also need to judge wisely how to proceed in the card play -- both as a Declarer or as a Defender. Here we look at how to use your experience and judgment to make better choices about which suit and/or card to play.
