|The IAC welcomes Chick (Cornelia Yoder) for a season of excellent weekly bridge instruction. Chick is an expert player and teacher, as well as an artist, cartographer, and glider pilot. Her focus in this series of lessons will be “Visualizing the Cards Around the Table: What is the bidding saying or not saying?” And who doesn’t want to know what their opponents and partner hold before starting play?|
Chick will be starting her sessions on September 11 and continuing every Tuesday from 5:30 to 6:30 PM ET. Audio (necessary) can be accessed on the following link: http://corneliayoder.radiostream123.com/ (Cornelia does NOT use BBO voice). Please check out Cornelia’s website

|With mixed feedback on Monday's Practice of Angel Blue's lessons, and in support of loyal members and Arik's students, we introduce another slot -- Fridays, 1700UTC, 1pm edt, 7pm Paris. Results say we all ought practice more! Pls plan to join both Monday & Friday :) |
These trnys award Monster points, but not for overall score. Only 4 boards declared by your side matter, if you made them all - u get 5MPs. If u made 3 of them you get 3 MPs; and if u made just 2, you'll get 1MP. For those that failed 3 or 4... come practice again! : )
