Bridge takes months to learn initially and a lifetime to master. 

Your learning should never stop, as the potential of your game depends on your investment in learning it well.  The side effects are good for your game, but excellent for your brain health, immunity and longevity.  We are committed to keeping our classes simple, fun and effective for you and we are invested in your learning and will support you outside of the classroom as well.

Wham-Bam-Bid-To-Slam:

The complete path to 6 & 7!

Bid slams more efficiently! 

The bonuses for bidding slams is too great not to understand when to get there, how to get there and when to avoid slam.  It is way more than blackwood and asking for Aces or Keycards.  Knowing when to avoid such conventions, which method of investigation to use, what to do with the information we get, etc., is so much more important.  If you have settled for the occasional 6-level bid and crossed your fingers hoping it all works out, you need this class.
