BRIDGE: The Wonderful World of “2 OVER 1”

Date: Friday, February 8, 2019 Time: 2:00 pm-4:00 pm Location: Equinox Village  { MAP } Fee: $75 in advance



Elizabeth von Riesenfelder

“2 OVER 1” is a modification on the Standard American bidding system that allows for the easier bidding sequences to reach game contracts or search for a slam. It is not a universal solution to all of our bidding problems; you still need to know Standard Bidding for situations where 2/1 is not applicable. We will cover how 2/1 changes basic Standard and facilitates easier communication. “1 NoTrump Forcing” and “Inverted Minors” conventions are essential additional tools for our transition to a new approach. If this sounds Chinese to you, then you’re the right candidate for the course! For intermediate players only.

Class will meet on Fridays, February 8, 15, 22 and March 1.
