People play bridge for one reason: because it’s fun! This course will help beginners and social bridge players understand the basics of duplicate bridge. You might want to enjoy playing with friends or you might want to get involved at a bridge club, either way these classes will help you get started. It’s also a good refresher for people who used to play but have forgotten a few things. We will cover the basics of bidding and playing the hand, what makes duplicate different (and so fascinating!), defensive strategy, and common bidding conversations (aka “conventions”). At least half of every class will be spent playing bridge.
Required Supplies: Bidding in the 21st Century, Audrey Grant and Betty Starzec -- copies furnished by ACBL
