Looking for a Better approach to teaching declarer play?

A presentation-ready Teacher’s Manual for the second half of the ABTA award-winning book, Planning the Play of a Bridge Hand, by Barbara Seagram and David Bird. This completes the conversion into classroom format begun in Jonathan Shute’s Planning the Play of a Bridge Hand, Teacher’s Manual for Part I.

Six two-hour lesson plans are laid out with a word-by-word script, a review handout to give to the class and hand records for the set up of full hands. The course is aimed at players with some experience, up to and including intermediates who want to solidify their basic declarer play and add to their thinking and technique repertoire—in other words, the vast majority of bridge players. 

This course will help your students learn and practice the concepts surrounding more advanced finesses (such as two way and ruffing finesses), entry management, trump management, keeping the danger hand off lead, hold up plays, combining chances in a hand, and counting the defenders’ hands in order to place crucial cards.
