Free Lessons: The Magic or 2NT & Lebensohl with Adam Parrish
We love playing 1NT and 3NT, but 2NT is up there with 4 of a minor as one of the least desirable contracts. While it’s not a great contract, 2NT is a fantastic bid. Since we so often don’t want to use it naturally, 2NT can take on all sorts of cool conventional meanings. The possibilities really are endless. This course explores all the common uses of the magical 2NT.

Adam’s Teaching Philosophy:
“Bridge is a game, and above all is meant to be fun. This approach is the backbone of my teaching philosophy. It’s very hard to learn when you’re down on yourself, so I strive to keep things enjoyable and positive create an environment that fosters learning.
My focus is on logic and thought-process. Learning new conventions is fun, and there is plenty of value there. But knowing the system you already play and understanding the fundamentals of bidding and cardplay are significantly more important. So my teaching focuses more on declarer play, defense, and bidding fundamentals and less on exotic conventions. I want to be sure you not only know what the correct bid or play is, but why it is the correct thing to do.”

The key to being a good declarer is your thought process at trick one — before you play from the dummy. This is one of Adam’s specialties: he literally wrote the book on the subject! Twice!
Adam focuses on how to make a plan as declarer, noting the difference between suit contracts and notrump.
