Advanced Lesson 15: Rebids, Splinters, Jacoby 2 Notrump – Slow Shows, Fast Denies

In this 192 minute mega-episode we explore Splinter Bids, Jacoby 2 Notrump, cuebids, interference bids, defensive strategies and more.  BridgeHands provides commentary and illustrative Bridge hands to bid and play in response to our survey questions 12 through 21 with over 2 dozen hands regarding opener and responder rebids.  If you are looking to make more slams, especially when you and partner only have 25 or so High Card Points, you’ve come to the right place!

This lesson goes deep, very deep with a comprehensive discussion on how “Slow Shows – Fast Denies” bidding is both important for you and your partner to accurately bid your game and slam hands, as well as utilize obstructive tactics to minimize interference from the opponents.  Of course in some circumstances frisky opponents have a mind of their own.  But worry not Bridge friends, we will encounter some of these “messy” bidding scenarios in our lesson and provide you additional tactics to succinctly and elegantly counteract their obstructive bids.

As always, you can count on us to offer rich commentary on behalf of all players around the table along with animated card play.  So rather than having to “go it alone” and only seeing your own 13 cards and the dummy, as always you will be treated to see what is going on for all players from the moment the hands are dealt.  This format provide a rich, story-telling environment to provide a more lively and often dramatic journey with card by card narration.  Better yet, as each player’s turn we delve into the mind of that player, considering bids, agreements, leads, signals and inferences gained from each player’s perspective.

So with over three hours of instructional video materials in our 6+2 part lesson, you won’t want to miss this lesson.  And as always, we have a plethora of  additional Bridge hands here at BridgeHands – we welcome you to view our online archive with hundreds of hours of Bridge videos are always available here:
