Please join us for a pleasant afternoon/evening of competitive party bridge.
I'm combining this Meetup with a general games potluck at my home in central Arlington.
Please sign up by Saturday afternoon, the day before the game. However, the event will not be canceled if four have not signed up.
You must know Contract Bridge rules and basic bidding to play. No formal training will be offered, but this is a social, casual event, and bidding advice and meanings will be openly discussed at any player's request.
ACBL Yellow Card (http://lexikos.com/yellowcard.htm) is our group-standard bidding system; a novice should please take time to study all basic openings and responses shown above, plus standard Jacoby Transfer (http://www.bridgebum.com/jacoby_transfers.php) and Stayman (http://www.bridgebum.com/stayman.php) responses to NT openings. We will expect a verbal alert on deviations an expert may make to these most-common conventions.
