Bridge Basics II

Tuesday mornings, 9:45-11:45, Jan 8 - Mar 19.

This is a second course for players who have taken the bridge for beginners’ class based on the Audrey Grant Bridge Basics 1 textbook or who have equivalent basic bridge knowledge. We will continue using Audrey Grant’s excellent text, Bridge Basics 2 – Competitive Bidding. In this class, we will be learning overcalls, advancing overcalls, doubles, preemptive bids, and how to handle interference. The approach is visual and hands-on. We will be playing many hands throughout the course.
