Intermediate Bridge Topics

By Ralph Welton

Advancing from beginner status to intermediate is ill defined.

If you find that most of the Bridge Bears website is too easy for you, you may be an intermediate.

On the other hand, beginners (like the rest of us) have a tendency to think they know more than they do. So you may still be a beginner and think you are an intermediate.

Let me ask the Bridge Bears...

They say you can call yourself whatever level you want. It's a sticky issue, like honey. And it's all good.

Here are my first two intermediate topics:

Simple Squeezes
Lebensohl Practice

Ralph Welton with BuffyBridge Bears is run by a retired teacher and ACBL life master who has 35 years teaching experience and who's been playing bridge for over 50 years. I don't claim to be one of the top players, but I do understand how slowly beginners need to go when they are trying to learn how to play bridge.
