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.

Learn how to read the auction more clearly in (4) sessions!  This class is for any player who is miffed by questions like...what does that mean?,  Am I supposed to go to game?, What does my partner want me to do?...  Most of us make mistakes in bidding because we were taught what to bid, but never taught how to read bidding.  When your bidding is misunderstood you make costly mistakes that keep you out of the correct contract or takes you and partner on an adventure ride into impossible contracts that can't make.  OY!  This class is packed with exercises that are set up to challenge how well you understand bidding.  It is not like any class you have taken before as we reverse the way we explain bidding.  Our goal...If the way you learned it originally isn't working, maybe this will help bring it all together for you.

Points Explained

Learn to evaluate and re-evaluate your playing strength correctly! 

Points!  Urgghh.  Add them here, count them there, delete them here...

it is so confusing!  Aren't you ready to clean up this messy misunderstanding of how to properly evaluate your hand?  From our perspective, TOO MANY of players were not taught proper hand evaluation or worse, you were taught a basic method that doesn't work well.   It is way more than "Aces are worth 4 points" and "Doubletons are worth 1 point".  Come let us explain it in a way that will make sense logically!  Understanding this proper hand evaluation is critical to getting to the right contract and avoiding the wrong ones.  Class notes & worksheets will be emailed to each student for extra support.

Learn reach the 6 and 7-level more efficiently in (4) sessions! 

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.   We meet online for an hourly instructional session and practice with supportive hands for an hour, twice a week.  Class notes & worksheets will be emailed to each student for extra support.
