New bridge movies in bbo store. http://www.bridgebase.com/store/ Based ion threads posted here by me years ago.




Part A http://www.bridgebas...iewer.php?id=62 descriptions, examples, the of simple squeezes

Part B http://www.bridgebas...wer.php?id=1818 Quit hands 1- 5

Part C http://www.bridgebas...wer.php?id=1816 Quiz hares 6 - 10


Lessons 2, 3 4 are ready, but I need to split them into smaller chunks. If there is enough interest, I will go ahead and post them. But I will need to do the part A, B, C thin, because or criticism of the length of my endplay movie. . If anyone works through the the parts of" Lessor 1" let me know if the length of the three segments are too long or not.

On lesson C quiz 7. It says you test the diamonds to see if they break 5-0. You are missing 6 of them. It also means you can't truly answer how many top tricks you have yet, though you could make a very educated guess at it.

Lesson 1A, ID = 62, text says, "On the ♠A, West was to discard one of his Hearts or his ♣A, after which one of the N/S menaces would become a winner.

For the "B" requirement to be fulfilled, one defender must be BUSY guarding against BOTH menaces (in this case, West). After examining this hand, you should note that that if one opponent had the ♥KQ and the other had the ♠A that you would have to lose a trick."

I think the second paragraph should say club A.


Also, I didn't see where you defined the "upper hand". It's useful to keep that the N hand in the diagrams... but please tell people early on that "upper" is a convention for "the hand opposite the squeeze card", and could be declarer's hand as well as North or Dummy.

Ugh -- I thought that 'id=62" might be related to slide number. But it's not. One suggestion on the movie SW is to enable putting some sort of slide number or page nunber on each of the pages to effect more coherent discussion about the movies.
