HBC PRESENTS: LEARN THESE CONVENTIONS WITH ME - ONLINE 

 

Back by popular demand, and as a follow up to her recent online courses on declarer and defensive play, HBC instructor and game director Laurie Robbins will present a new six week course, Learn These Conventions With Me, on Wednesday evenings. Lessons will be held online using Shark Bridge.
 
Dates: Wednesday, August 24 through September 28
 
Time: 7 pm to 9 pm
 
Target audience: Advanced Beginner to Intermediate (Less than 750 MPs)
 
Course details:
The program will focus on learning and applying some of the most popular and frequently used bridge bidding conventions. There will be examples and exercises designed to enable course participants to develop and apply this knowledge in challenging settings. At the end of the program, participants will be able to confidently use these conventions in competitive play and recognize them when used by their opponents.
 
Topics include the following:
 
August 24:  Jordan 2NT (with a refresher on Jacoby 2NT)
 
August 31:  Drury
 
September 7:  New Minor Forcing
 
September 14:  Fourth Suit Forcing
 
September 21:  Stayman Variations- Garbage, Crawling, Smolen
 
September 28:  Puppet Stayman
 
 
Participant Cost: $15 per session, or $80 for all six sessions
 
Laurie will present the sessions using Shark Bridge - a globally recognized online teaching platform, featured in the ACBL Bulletin and used by experts such as the Grossacks and Adam Parrish. Using Shark Bridge, ALL participants will play the same hands and benefit from the learning experience.
 
During each lesson, you will practice bidding with a partner - we will assign you a partner if you do not have one. However, each student will have the opportunity to play every hand, against robot defenders.
 
For those unfamiliar with Shark Bridge, we will hold a FREE warm up session (date and time to be announced). For those who attended Laurie's courses on declarer or defensive play, you may not need to attend this session. However, you will be required to make bids as part of this class, so if you are unsure about how to do that, Laurie will explain it to you at the practice session.
