Yes, there can be a bit of confusion! You need to act in many roles around the bridge table. Different bidding guidelines apply when you’re the Opener, Overcaller, Responder, Advancer, or a most important Balancer. Minimum strength requirements also depend on whether you open 1st and 2nd, 3rd or 4th seats. This course will help you find the right contract at the right level and compete sensibly for good duplicate results. Learn to constantly reevaluate your hand depending on your partner’s and the oppositions’ bids! For players familiar with basic bidding conventions and good playing skills.

Class will meet on Fridays, May 31, June 7, 14, 21.
