Martin Powell Lessons:  Beyond Bridge Basics 2.0 Classes

Popular instructor Martin Powell returns to the Eastern Shore Duplicate Bridge Club with a series of six bridge classes designed to hone beginning bridge skills and to introduce more advanced play and new conventions.  Classes will be held at the Nix Center in Fairhope on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month starting in January 2020.  Sessions will run from 10 a.m. until noon and will include a brief review, introduction of new material and approximately one hour of play that employs the lesson's topic.  There is no cost for Nix Center members (and memberships are available for only $25 per year). The preliminary course outline (which may change based upon class needs) is as follows:

Jan 10: introduce: New minor Forcing, January 24: Fourth Suit Forcing, February 14: Limit raise cue bid, support double, responsive double, February 28: reverses, March 13: Drury, March 27: Bergen raises.  The first class on January 10 will review Gerber, Blackwood, RKC1430, Quantative NT, vs RKC.  Subsequent reviews will be on the previous session's lesson.   Preregistration is not required; however, please call 251-928-2835 or sign-up at the Nix Center in advance to ensure plenty of materials are available.
