Play of the Hand

Join Mojo for four Thursday evenings at the beautiful Oneonta Congregational Church in South Pasadena for four classes focused on improving your play of the hand as declarer. Learn and practice techniques used by expert players to plan the play and win more tricks when declaring.

Topics include:

  • Planning the play, counting winners and losers
  • Eliminating losers in trump contracts, sluffing and ruffing
  • Finesses of all sorts
  • Preserving entries, ducking and hold-up plays
  • Identifying and defending against the dangerous opponent

Class will meet on July 12, 19, 26, and August 2 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Defense

August Thursday evenings will be dedicated to defender play.  Learn ways to work with your partner to take all your tricks, without being able to see each other's hands.

Topics include:

  • Opening leads against trump and notrump contracts
  • Second hand and third hand play
  • Defensive signals: attitude, count, and suit preference
  • Interfering with declarer's plans
