When the opponents open the bidding with 1NT, it is more difficult to enter the bidding. DON’T(disturbing opponent’s NT) is an effective tool. We’ll learn how and when to use this tool.

This class is for the moderately experienced social bridge player who wants to get to the next level of playing. We will move deeper into the complexities of bidding, bidding conventions, play, revaluing your hand, keeping score, defending, and opening lead philosophy.

Some classes will meet in our Computer Center for online bridge.
