XYZ Convention - Thursday, June 14.
XYZ is an advanced version of two-way new minor forcing. It allows repsonder to show many different hand types and strengths at lower levels than standard new minor forcing. You will be able to bid more accurately to your part-score, game and slam contracts.


The Overall Bridge Player Series - Practice Hands to Improve Your All Around Game- Thursday, June 21 and Thursday, June 28.

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.
