Fall Classes

My new fall class schedule is up. There will be four classes at Temple Sinai and one class at the Atlanta Duplicate Bridge Center. I will be teaching a 2/1 Class at Temple Sinai in addition to a new beginner class. If you have friends that are interested in learning the game please let them know about my new beginner class.

 

I am also interested in doing a one or two day bridge seminar in Atlanta. If anyone knows of a local country club that might be interested in hosting a seminar please give me a call at 770-354-6033.

Atlanta Regional

There will be no classes this week as I will be playing the Atlanta Labor Day Regional which is held at the Holiday Inn Ravinia across from Perimeter Mall. Several students have asked about playing at the tournament and what events to play in.

 

If you are new to tournament play I would suggest playing in events specifically designed for newcomers. These are usually listed by masterpoint reuqirements and will show up as 5/20/50 or even 0-5 events. The link to the schedule is here

So lets look at Wednesday for example. Good events for newcomers would include the 0-5 Trophy Pairs which take place at 1:30 and 7:30 pm. Note that this is two separate events, you can enter either or both.

On Friday there is a 5/20/50 event that is also held at 1:30 and 7:30, again you can enter either or both events.

 

If anyone has any questions please give me a call and I hope to see you at the tournament, I can usually be found in the prize room handing out goodies.

New Class Schedule

My August/September class schedule is now out. You can see it by clicking here

I am teaaching at Temple Sinai and the Atlanta Duplicate Bridge Center. I will continue to look for additional locations for classes.  Unfortuantely for now there will be no newcomer duplicate game.

Atlanta Sectional

Happy 4th of July. We just finished another very successful Sectional in Atlanta. There were just shy of 1000 tables in play over the course of 5 days. I played with my regular partner Mike Kovacich and we had a good time with one win and several seconds.

One very interesting hand was dealt on Saturday night in the knockouts.

I had

Spade 10

Heart Q9

Diamond K1094

Club KQ10965

My left hand opponent opened with a preempt of 3Club. I was rooting for partner to make a takeout double, which I would pass for penalties. Unfortuantely my partner bid 4Club which showed the majors. I bid 4Heart and it went pass, pass and then my right hand opponent doubled. I was not too happy awaiting the sight of dummy.

Spade Q97643

Heart AK108643

Partner was 6-7 in the majors!!!!

I ruffed the DiamondQ lead and led a spade to the Spade J and my Spade 10. The opponents shifted to a trump but I was able to win it, trump a spade, draw trumps and give up two spades to make   4Heart doubled.

 

About the possibility of a new club, I hope to have an annoucement in the next two weeks.
