Online Learning Opportunites

While our facilities are temporarily closed due to COVID-19, we continue to offer online individual, partnership and group coaching using BBO and Zoom platforms.  This is an ideal time to try one of our offerings from the comfort of your home.

Play and review (Individuals)

Play an ACBL tourney with one of our experienced teachers followed by a review session.  You may split the two sessions.  As always, our cous will be the “thought process”.  What should you be thinking about to arrive at the optimal decision throught the hand?  This is the best option for individuals yearning for improvement but do not have a serious partner to work with.  Your progress is bound to solve the problem of hortage of serious partners.

Play and review (Pairs)

Play and ACBL tourney or on online club game with your partner followed by a review session with one of our experienced teachers.  It takes approximately an hour to play and up to an hour and a half for the review session.  You may split the two sessions.  We will review the played hands with you and set up a Teaching Table for your partnership to replay these hands with an “over the shoulder” analysis focusing on the “thought process”.  This is the best option for committed partnerships wanting to take their game to the next level.  This option is also available for a group of four.
