Evergreen Squeezes with Cedar
« on: May 18, 2020, 10:47:51 AM »
Hello members! Please welcome new IAC teacher that joins us from ACOL club where he successfully runs mentoring sessions, Alan Jones, bbo name CEDAR.

This coming Thursday, May 21st, Cedar will start (long) series of lessons on Squeezes, he has prepared many many examples! The first lesson, which is really important not to miss, covers the terminology that we need, the principles behind squeeze play and (especially) the five-point plan that we will be following to establish whether a squeeze exists on any given hand, and if so how to implement it.

Lesson will use bbo_voice, so please come in V3 bbo version and click on casual to be able reach iac room and hear the teacher. Hope see many of you on Thursday, May 21st at 1400 utc, 10am New York, 3pm London.  :)

Please see later posts for lessons, I'll add file with examples after each session.

The links to the articles are visible but there is NO ability to click on them and start a download. Life shouldn't be this hard. :)

This is a shortened response to Pat's problem.

I am using Chrome, I right click my mouse on the link, I choose "open in a new window". It comes up.
If, instead, I left click it does not open.
This might or might not work for others.

I see Pat now has the files.

Thanks Ken. I managed to download the file from your post but despite what Sanya said about it not being the difficult some of us are not new to computers and it was not possible to download the file from her post. All is good now though.:)

I enjoyed very much the first Alan lesson was ready to assist to the whole next lesson today (28May) but unfortunately after the first round, the speaker's voice (as well as any voice) went off, so unfortunately I had to leave the lesson, because without voice these lessons are not so great.
I am using the updated version of BBO and clicked properly on the yellow "Voice" rectangle, so please try to do something about this issue or let us know if there is something else to do from our side…
Thank you.

There is no more advice we can give, but what we always say.
Stop the voice, then restart it again.
Log off and Log in again.
Change browser if above does not work.
