Bridge 3 Class with Hank
  • When: Eight Tuesdays beginning Oct 6 from 9:30 to 11:30
  • What: The emphasis of Bridge 3 is on beginning play of the hand. Count winners or losers. Can you afford to pull trump first?
  • We also review Bridge 1 and 2 bidding. Std. American is ok too.
  • In addition, some new topics are covered: Leads, reverses, finesses, cue bid limit raises, plus some ideas on defense.
  • Each class consists of a lesson on Zoom and the play of six hands.
  • Cost: $40:   About half goes to Bridge Brigade, half to BBO (or) Shark. It looks like Shark Bridge at this time.
  • All payments would be to Bridge Brigade.
