BBO has posted another online lesson present by a world class player. This time Larry Cohen. You can find it announced in the "news" when you log in to play on BBO, or you can just click the following link to listen to Larry as he walks you through the two hands he has to show (from the title you can guess they are related).

Larry Cohen's Deja vu artilcle

I enjoyed this article, and think almost all forum members would find it useful. I guess it is inappropriate to for novice/beginners/and 65% of intermediates. The intermediate working hard to become advanced and advanced players will benefit from it. My guess is that Experts will probably find it interesting as well (you guys can let me know after you view it)...

LOL, I couldn't believe Cohen said "LOL" in his lesson. Aren't these his main customers?
But probably he was sure that any LOL that would have started listening to his lesson, would have stopped some time in the middle of the 2nd hand by the latest...
Obviously we have a recall bias in favour of the assholes. -helene_t

If you have any feedback on these lessons, please send your comments to jacki at bridgebase dot com (be sure to format the email address correctly) I think she will see your comments here, but emailing her is the sure way to get your views to the correct person. In your case, you would want to include the comment about wanting an archive of lessons (my understanding is if they go forward with these, there will be a library of these lessons -- some free, some not so free). One can only hope is that all the future ones are of as high a quality of the first two.

FWIW, I thought that Cohen did a really good job...

I have to make far too many expository videos at work.
Written a good script and making a quality narration is far more work than one might think.

This format fits my learning style which means I learn and retain more per unit of time invested.

Fred's lesson felt more like I was inside his head listening to his thoughts unfold in real time as they would at the table. I like this approach and I think it has a lot of potential for helping improving intermediates ingrain a solid routine.

I am not an educator or a psychologist but it strikes me that this format goes further than typical book and software formats in the way it engages the audience's attention. Obviously, this depends a lot on individual learning styles. I noticed something similar when my wife and I sat in on an Eric K & Co. live vugraph session a few years back. My wife, who has never played bridge, thoroughly enjoyed the smart commentary and witty exchanges and was able to discuss some of the problems afterward.

I plan to work on my game (intermediate) in earnest after getting a few things squared away on the work and home fronts later this year. When I do, I will definitely consider investing in high quality educational materials in this format.

I liked Larry's lesson, too. While Fred's hand may have been more complicated, and it was interesting hearing his through processes, Larry's speaking style was much better. Of course, Larry has much more experience as a bridge author and teacher, so I was expecting this.

I enjoyed and benefited from both the lessons.Most of Larry's lesson would be easily understood by most intermediates.The false carding motif in the second deal would be appreciated by 'advanced ' intermediates and above.
Fred's lesson dealt with a more complex hand .I liked the interactive component of Fred's lesson where he gave the listener/viewer an opportunity to test himself.
I eagerly look forward to the next installment.

This topic has been posted long before the polls were started. I have changed the title and added the poll.
