How Does this Work?

We are not using BBO for our Play of the Hand (POH) workshops.

We are using a newer Bridge software package called Shark Bridge.

Advantages:

   * You don't need a partner.

   * You may be able to play hands based

       on your speed of play.

Format:  90-Minute Class

Approximately ½ lecture and ½ playing application of lecture concepts

We will first meet in a Zoom room for a lecture.

The lecture will last about 40 minutes.

After our lecture, we will enter our Shark Bridge software while continuing to listen and talk through Zoom.   In Shark Bridge you will be seated at a table to play/practice hands based on the lecture.

Each week you will receive a pre-class PDF lesson with content and exercises.

The weekly lectures will be taped, but there is no way to replicate the playing scenario if you cannot attend the Shark session.

Players will receive their Zoom link and

Lecture PDF by 6:00pm on Monday 

each week.
