JOSEE HAMMILL'S ONLINE BRIDGE LESSONS

Check in with Josée on www.bridgebase.com

  • Tuesday evenings from 7-9 pm

FORMAT:

  • 4 players play 2 hands, with Josée advising on the proper bidding once you have finished bidding. Then you play the hand.
  • After two boards, 4 new players join.
For those not actually playing a hand that round, you can watch and listen to the bidding and playing commentary. There may be opportunities to ask questions after each hand.

Be sure to get an account with www.bridgebase.com

  • Log in to BBO at www.bridgebase.com. This will take you to the lobby. If you have not joined BBO yet, you will need to register with a user name and a password. Registration is free.
  • Once you log on to BBO, the first screen you will see has a menu that includes Play or Watch Bridge.
  • In order to find where I am teaching you will need to add me as a friend . My user name on BBO is JoseeTeach. To add me as a friend, look to the right of your screen, and you will see a tab that says People. Click on this and at the bottom of that screen, where it says Add Friend, add my user name JoseeTeach. Once it shows me online, you can click on my ID and my profile will appear.
  • Go to the top of the profile and click on the blue "Join" button. That will take you to the teaching table.

This part is definitely new for all of you and is very important.

This will be an BBO audio (voice) lesson. When you get to the table you will see a yellow button that says Voice. Click on that button. If you have trouble hearing, make sure that you have your volume turned up. If you don't see the yellow button, you may need to log off and change browsers. Chrome and Firefox seem to work well.

If you are using a tablet to access BBO you can't take advantage of the voice feature from the app. Best to open your browser on our tablet and go to www.bridgebase.com/v3/. Then you will be using the site as if you are on a laptop. I highly recommend you do it this way so you can listen to my wonderful bridge tips :)

Doug Cowan will be joining me to help out. His user ID is wdoug1 so you can always ask him questions privately. Add him as a friend also. If you require more help over the phone ask either one of us.

Let's have fun playing some bridge and connecting again! We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday evenings!

Check out Josee's website www.bridgewebs.com/josees or email Josee at mjhammill@rogers.com or call 416-300-9140.

SUPERVISED DUPLICATE GAMES

Our Tuesday evening Newcomer Games have been cancelled until further notice due to COVID-19 concerns.
Tuesday morning games are now over.

We realize that the word Duplicate can be pretty scary sounding for many of you. Often newer players unfamiliar with the term think it means a whole different kind of bridge. We also recognize that it can be pretty intimidating to walk into a bridge club where everyone else seems to know what they are doing, and it feels like you are the only one who doesn't! The Barbara Seagram School of Bridge at Armour Heights Presbyterian Church, 105 Wilson Avenue, is pleased to introduce some opportunities for you to come and play duplicate in a super relaxed environment. If you are already an experienced Duplicate Player, please tell your friends who are only playing social/kitchen/party bridge. Do tell them what a wonderful chance they have to learn. Unlimited help available!
