REDUCE YOUR LEARNING CURVE! - For the advancing player

Join Mark Bumgardner who is teaching the following lessons:

Help Suit and Short Suit Game Tries - Thursday, July 13.
Help suit and short suit game tries are designed to help you identify when you have well fitting hands and can bid game on less than normal game values. Learn how to use both methods to bid more games and stay out of game when you have poor fitting hands.


The Overall Bridge Player Series - Practice Hands to Improve Your All Around Game- Thursday, July 20 and Thursday, July 27.

This will be an ongoing class on a variety of topics.

  • PLAY: Play topics will include Identifying Winners & Losers, Developing Long Suits, Trumping Losers, Avoiding Dangerous Opponents, Hold Up Plays, Simple Endplays, Counting and much more.
  • DEFENSE: Defensive techniques will include Suit Preference, Counting and Attitude Signals and Basic Uppercut Techniques.
  • BIDDING: You will obtain expert tips on bidding to include hand evaluation, cuebidding, game tries, control showing bids, stopper bids and much more.

Specific hands will be provided to illustrate the above points. After each hand, the bidding and pertinent play aspects will be discussed and you will be provided a printout of the hands and analysis. This is a great way to improve all aspects of your game and take it to the next level.
