We have moved Modern Conventions classes to Wednesday at 5:30 PM. This class series is designed for beginners & novice players who have a basic understanding of bridge. We will go through primary bridge conventions in detail and afterward will play simulated hands that correspond to the subject of the day. Each class is a stand-alone, so you may attend specific classes that interest you. Following is the new Schedule:
April 10 – Minor Suit Opening
April 17 – Major Suit Opening
April 24 – One No Trump Opening
May 01 – Pre-empts
May 08 – Strong Bids
May 15 – Doubles
May 22 – Recap and Graduation

March attendance prize winner was Jeanne Reddington! She won the book, 25 Steps to learning 2/1, by Paul Thurston.
You may be asking yourself ” How can I win some of these fabulous prizes?” The simple answer is that it is not hard at all! When you attend a game or a class at J’s Bridge Pad, just put your name on the piece of paper that is provided and put it in the “April Shower” Purple Pumpkin and you are entered. It’s that easy! There is no limit as to how many times you can enter. The more you play and learn, the greater your chances of getting your hands on some wonderful prizes throughout 2019. Good luck and happy playing!
April’s attendance prize is an officially licensed copy of Bridge Baron 27, in my opinion, the best bridge learning and playing software tool around.

My good friend Phyllis has just completed 3 classes in Feb. Please watch this space for the announcements of future classes. Hope you all enjoyed the classes.
I’m Jay, the owner of J’s Bridge Pad. You may be asking what J’s Bridge Pad is, and that would be a good question. We do a lot, so what we do is hard to define. Our motto at J’s Bridge Pad is “All Things Bridge!” We have been open for over two years; it has been quite a wild ride. Some say that J’s Bridge Pad is the premier destination to play bridge in St. Louis. OK, it’s mostly me saying this. But if you stop by, I think you will agree that this is not too much of an exaggeration. In addition to playing duplicate sanctioned bridge, hosting social and private bridge groups, we also have mentor games, lessons, and group classes with experienced bridge teachers.
We are also part of the common games system, which allows you to compare your game performance with over 300 clubs worldwide. At J’s Bridge Pad we pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge of bridge technology. Our color touch screen scoring system, using Kindle tablets, has been an overwhelming success. They are very easy to use, if you don’t believe me, just ask someone! We have provided computer program Bridge Baron to 100+ players in St. Louis metro area at a 40% discount. This software is one of the best bridge learning tools I have found.
We are located in the heart of West County at Clarkson and Manchester Road, just a hop, skip and a throw from Highway 40. (Check under directions on the website, btw there are stairs, as well as an elevator to access our space). So come by and check out the vibrant, yet cozy confines of J’s Bridge Pad. It appears that this blog post has morphed into a commercial for J’s Bridge Pad, sorry about that. I’ll try to make sure that it does not happen again. Actually, if you have any ideas for our next blog post, please send them to me. Happy bridge playing!
