A class for those who know the rudiments of the game but are either rusty or looking to improve. We will begin the study of basic conventions (coded bids): Stayman, Transfers, Blackwood, etc. How do we handle contested auctions where the other side is bidding? When do we preempt or not? We will also look at additional topics in defense and declarer play.

A class for those who have played in sanctioned games  for at least six months (or equivalent) and who are  familiar with the basic conventions. We will focus on 2 over 1, and look at somewhat more advanced topics in play and defense, explore team of 4 play and its need for safety plays and active or passive defense. Topics suggested by the class will be considered.
