Fight Fire with Fire: Combatting Their Preempts
July 11 9:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Are you tired of the opponents pushing you around? It’s time to fight back! Preempts by an opponent are one of the most annoying parts of the game, but they may give you the opportunity to make a bid that you couldn’t otherwise. Learn:
• The Rule of 7
• Lebensohl versus weak 2 bids
• Leaping Michaels
• The Suit Quality and Losing Count Test for Overcalls
• What a jump overcall means (you may be surprised!)
• When to double, and whether the double is penalty or takeout
• And perhaps most importantly, when to pass!
Practice what you’ve learned by bidding several hands. Notes are included.
$30 per person, payable at the door.
