DARIEN, Conn. -- The Darien Community Association will present a Bridge Master Class with Augie Boehm Friday, April 1.

Defense – active or passive? It’s a truism of bridge that you defend twice as often as you declare (unless you are a miraculous card holder). There are two modes of defense, active and passive.

This class will explain how to recognize each type; the main clue is the appearance of the dummy. You will play eight deals to illustrate the main ideas.

Boehm has taught bridge in and around the New York City area for four decades. He is the author of eight books, a regular columnist for the American Contract Bridge League monthly magazine and conducts bridge seminars worldwide.

A top professional player and winner of countless tournaments, he also is an accomplished pianist who performs annually at Carnegie Hall.

This bridge master class will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon. It is $55 per person or $50 for association members.

Prepayment is required by Wednesday, March 30, and can be made either online or directly to the association through or (203) 655-9050.

The Darien Community Association is at 274 Middlesex Road, Darien.
