- The October class will teach you the fundamental nature of the game, play of the hand, bidding, and basic scoring. At its conclusion, you will be able to play the game od bridge! (You will be encouraged to play 5 or 6 times, 50-60 hands) before taking the next class.
- The November lesson will consist of a rigorous presentation of the opening bid without a 5-card suit, along with the responses and opener re-bids, further exploration of the “Point Count” theory, and “Declarer Play” - both planning the play and strategies for winning additional tricks.
- The December lesson introduces the concept of “Bidding Conventions” with first-level explanations and examples of several current and commonly used conventions. Play of the hand topic will include opening leads against suit and no-trump contracts.
- The January class will be a summary and review of the previous practices with plenty of time devoted to guided play.
