Summer 2017 Classes

Advanced Beginner Supervised Play & Review

Wednesdays, 10:30 am-1 pm
July 19, July 26, August 2, August 9, August 16

This is a review class, employing a mix of prepared lesson hands taken primarily from the Beginning Bridge, Declarer Play, and Deadly Defense series, new hands of the same level of difficulty, and some randomly-dealt hands. Each hand will be bid and played by the students, after which there will be a discussion of the decisions each player needed to make.  A short mini-lesson will be given.

Intermediate Supervised Play & Review

Wednesdays, 6:30-9 pm
July 26, August 2, August 9, August 16

This is a review class, employing a mix of prepared lesson hands (NOT random hands) taken primarily from the Beginning Bridge, Declarer Play, Deadly Defense, Polishing Your Basics, and Commonly Used Conventions series. Each hand will be bid and played by the students, after which there will be a discussion of the decisions each player needed to make.  A short mini-lesson will be given.

 

Supervised Play

Wednesdays, 2-4:30 pm
July 19, July 26, August 2, August 9, August 16

This is unstructured play, with advice and review offered based on whatever problems arise from the randomly dealt hands. While aimed at intermediate players who are trying or considering trying Duplicate Bridge, these sessions can be useful for anyone who has completed Beginning Bridge, for advanced beginners, and for intermediate players. Each week’s class stands on its own; it isn’t necessary to take the full series.

Duplicate Bridge

Once a month – see dates below
$3, reservations strongly requested

A non-sanctioned, fun Duplicate game is held twice per month – one day game and one evening game. Summer Duplicate is limited to a maximum of nine tables. No Master-Points are awarded in this non-sanctioned game. The game is open to anyone, whether or not taking lessons at the SJCC. The cost is $3 per person, and reservations are requested.
