Bridge for True Beginners 301

Bridge for True Beginners




9/19/2022 to 11/21/2022

Meeting Times

  • Monday 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM


Bridge is to card games what chess is to board games, as challenging as it is rewarding. If you’ve ever wanted to learn, now is the time and this is the class. We’ll start with the basics: what it means to follow suit, to take a trick, and to play trump. Then we’ll move on to the objectives, including actual scoring based on bidding and making contracts. Lessons will cover fundamental bidding (to reach the best contract) and Play of the Hand (to be able to fulfill that contract).
