Interference After an Opening 1NT

What Do You Do When your Opponent Opens 1NT?

What Do You Do When Your Opponent Interferes After Your Side’s 1NT Opening?

Classes are at Holy Spirit Catholic Church
1800 SW State Route 150
Lee’s Summit, MO
Wednesdays, 1 to 3 p.m.

Cost $17 per class
These are advanced beginning courses concentrating on the bidding after an opening 1NT bid, but some defensive and declarer play instruction and practice is included.
Textbook will be available for sale, not included in the course cost.
Just call (816-237-0519) or e-mail  to sign up.  Do so at least 2 weeks in advance and let me know if you want the book for $6.  If you sign up later than that 2 weeks, I cannot guarantee I’ll have the book.

Sept. 18:   This class was changed from its original Sept. 12.  It will now be Sept. 18 in my home from 9:15-11:15.  You must sign up to attend!  How to interfere after opponent’s opening 1NT response. We’ll start off by using the DONT (Disturbing Opponents NoTrump) convention.

Sept. 26:  TIME CHANGE!  WILL BE 3 to 5 p.m. for this class only!  Now we’ll introduce some possible bids by responder after opponent interferes after partner’s opening bid.  That means more practice of the DONT convention with these new techniques to overcome that interference.  A Handout on how to start overcoming that interference will be provided as part of the course fee.

Oct. 31:  I hope you’ve practiced what you learned in September, because now that I’m back from my cruise, we’ll review it all again and get some more practice in!

Kids Bridge

Oh, the people you’ll meet!

What is Kids Bridge?

I give the younger students a place to play bridge with others who are just starting out as well.  All the players have completed at least a beginning set of  lessons.  The purpose is to give them the opportunity to practice and to speed up their play.  It is free!  You just need to sign up ahead of time.  Parents are welcome to stay and watch!

After building up speed, for those who are comfortable with the idea, we plan to go play at some of the Duplicate Bridge Clubs in the area.

Fall 2018:

Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018 2:00 – 4:00 and Saturday, Dec. 15 2:00-4:00

  Call 816-237-0519 or e-mail to sign up and get directions.
