Problem – Most traditional Bridge instruction is based on static text and diagrams or well intended but incomplete dialog.

Solution – Our BridgeHands multimedia videos are designed to provide everyday and advancing Bridge players fun, easy to understand commentary that is enlightening, entertaining, as well as educational.  Imagine how quickly you will learn Bridge when choosing your topic of interest among hundreds of hours of video footage.  Yes, you can view high resolution HD videos immediately upon signing up.  And of course you can use the video playhead to “Scrub” the videos forward and backward, providing you complete control to enhance your learning experience.  Gone are the days missing an important point or having to wade through uninteresting explanations. 

And best yet, during the play of the hand you will be watching an animated screen sequence with all 52 cards clearly visible!  Our members find its both easier to learn, understand and retain new concepts when the student has the luxury to view EVERYONE’S cards, not just their own hand and wonder what happened after the dust clears.

Beginning in November 2010, in our Bridge blog we began producing our “Polling You” lessons with online videos beginning in mid-December 2010.  As of January, 2013, we have added the “Social” and “Advanced” video series:

1. Polling You – detailed 1-2 hour video lessons with numerous hands, comprehensive discussions, typically including downloadable materials.  We strive to ensure each of our lessons offer useful instruction for Bridge players of all levels.
2. Social – For our emerging novice-to-intermediate Bridge players, we offer comprehensive multi-segmented video lessons, complete with animated card play and comprehensive narration of what’s going on inside the mind of each player.
3. Advanced – For our higher-level and Duplicate Bridge players, we offer comprehensive multi-segmented minute video lessons, complete with animated card play and comprehensive narration of what’s going on inside the mind of each player.

    Dear Michael,
    Your new video index is a big improvement in making your unique videos lessons more accessible.
    It now makes it a lot easier to refer fellow Bridge players to your site.
    Hopefully you will get a boost in new members to make the effort worth while.
    Thanks and keep up the great work.
    Dave Maitland

      Hello Dave,
      .
      Many thanks for your feedback including your prior recommendation to make it easier to locate our video segments within each episode. While we are continuing to make additional navigational changes, you’ll notice that the “Polling You Index” has now been replaced by the term “Index to Videos.” So in addition to including our new Social and Advanced videos, within the Index you’ll find quick links to each video segment. No longer will our BridgeHands members need “drill down” to an episode and then scroll through pages of text. Additionally, within each of our prior Polling You episodes we’ve also included links to videos for general audiences, those with Free, Premium and ULTRA membership. Here’s the link for the new Index of Videos:

      In order to reduce the navigational steps, shortly we will provide a simpler, easy to remember link:
      .
      bridgehands.com/video or bridgehands.com/videos

      Warm Regards,
      .
