Basic Splinters in a Day is a four hour workshop to learn the Splinter Bid convention used after an opening bid of 1 heart or 1 spade. It will give players a thorough grounding in when to make a Splinter Bid. More importantly students will learn how to evaluate their hand after a Splinter Bid has been made. The workshop covers: When to make a Splinter Bid; What a Splinter Bid promises; How Opener re-evaluates their hand based on the Splinter Bid; Opener and Responder rebids. Basic Splinter Bids in a Day is the SECOND in the new line of Bridge In A Day modular workshops released by Patty Tucker. The workshops, built on bridge logic as well as the rules, are designed by 1/2 day workshops but can be easily broken into 2-hour lessons if preferred. Designed by corporate training expert, Blakely Meyers, the materials have a professional new look that students love. "Patty Tucker's work is learning-focused and is carefully planned and crafted, so that transfer is taught directly, with Basics, Teacher Notes, Example Questions, Lots and lots of Hands-On Practice Opportunities, Reproducible Reference Charts and Worksheets, with outstanding graphics that will appeal to the visual learners, as well as the auditory ones. I especially like Patty's materials because they are centralized around student involvement, sufficient repetition, outstanding and appealing diagrams, graphs, and consistent reviews. Having her materials will be a bridge teacher's delight and a student's answer to learning bridge in a way that will endure over time and transfer to games and tournaments, instead of being forgotten as one walks out the door of the class. I highly recommend her work for both bridge teachers and learners of our most beloved game." -Brenda Manning
