This class is for people who have a working knowledge of basic bridge. We learn Standard American style of bridge, learning techniques of playing a hand and bidding to communicate with our partners. We concentrate on some of the basic conventions of bridge, such as: Transfers, Stayman, Weak Twos, and Takeout Doubles. We start with about 45 minutes of a lesson, and then we do assisted playing and bidding of hands. Four times a year we have a practice duplicate game to learn the procedures for playing duplicate.
