A class for those who know the rudiments of the game but are either rusty or looking to improve. We will begin the study of basic conventions (coded bids): Stayman, Transfers, Blackwood, etc. How do we handle contested auctions where the other side is bidding? When do we preempt or not? We will also look at additional topics in defense and declarer play.

Thursdays 10/20-12/1 2:30-3:30 COURSE #8300
A class for those who have played in sanctioned games for at least six months (or equivalent) and who are familiar with the basic conventions. We will focus on 2 over 1, and look at somewhat more advanced topics in play and defense, explore team of 4 play and its need for safety plays and active or passive defense. Topics suggested by the class will be considered.
