Defensive Trump Tricks 2: Promotions and Uppercuts
Taught by:  Cornelia Yoder

Description:  An uppercut is when a defender ruffs with a high trump to force declarer or dummy to ruff higher than s/he would like, and thereby promote a smaller trump in partner's hand. Trump promotions force declarer to ruff high or be overruffed, promoting a smaller trump to a winner. This segment of Defensive Trump Tricks will focus on recognizing uppercut and promotion opportunities and how to execute them for extra defensive trump tricks.

Defensive Trump Tricks 3: The Forcing Defense
Taught by:  Cornelia Yoder

Description:  When you have length in trumps, you can sometimes force declarer to ruff enough times that you end up with more trumps than the declarer has left. This causes declarer to lose control of the hand and allows you to ruff in and cash tricks in your own suits. This segment of Defensive Trump Tricks will focus on when and how to play a forcing defense and create havoc for the poor helpless declarer. This class will be repeated at 7:00 pm (New York time) each Tuesday. [Mouse over for more information]
