Description

We’ll use Standard American bidding based on five-card majors and will cover important basic bidding conventions, like Blackwood, Stayman, and transfers. Then we'll build upon that knowledge and learn more about competitive conventions, like Michaels, Splinters, Jacoby 2NT, and Negative Doubles. We’ll also cover advances in defensive play: what to discard, giving count, and how to use suit preference signals. Comprised of short  Powerpoint lectures followed by the bidding and play of real bridge hands employing Bridgebase Online software, this class is for players who are ready for more complex play. Recommended texts: Bridge for Everyone, D. W. Crisfield, and 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know, Seagram and Smith, available on Amazon.Since this session will be online, Mike will use Zoom for Powerpoint presentations supplemented by the latest Bridgebase Online software developed by the American Contract Bridge League for students at all levels.
