Do you like bridge and want to improve your game? Have you ever bid to the contract of "Four Spades" and fulfilled it? This class is for you. Each class consists of a short lecture followed by the bidding and play of real bridge hands. This class is for bridge players who know the basics—following suit, taking tricks, trumping, as well as fundamental bidding and play. You will build a firm foundation of your bidding, declarer play and defensive play. Standard American bidding based on five card majors will be used. Bidding conventions such as Blackwood, Stayman, and Transfers will be covered. Required text: “Bridge for Everyone” by D. W. Crisfield.
