    $170 if registered and paid by December 8th. $190 after December 8th. Prices include taxes and textbook. This course is hands on.

    Do you love playing bridge? Have you taken either the Basic or Intermediate I course and looking to do more this Winter? Have you noticed that you are defending at bridge 50% of the time? That is right! Did you know that being on Defence is the most fun you can ever have at the bridge table even when you do not have any points in your hand? Let Lorraine show you how!

  • MIX AND MATCH SINGLE INTERMEDIATE SESSIONS with Josée Hammill

    Pick one, two, three or all of the following!
    Dates: Wednesdays – January 8, 15, 22 and 29 – 9:30 to 11:45 am

    $30 for single sessions at the door.

    Prices include Taxes and Handouts.

    • January 8 - Bidding practice: No Trump Auctions
      During this class we will bid on paper many No Trump auctions, where you will be able to reinforce your understanding of Stayman, Jacoby Transfers, Texas Transfers, Slam bidding and much more.
    • January 15 – Let’s take more tricks in No Trump Contracts
      Learn to count winners, make a plan, know how long to hold up and when to take a trick. Identify the safe hand and the dangerous opponent. Get clues from the bidding.
    • January 22 – Bidding Practice: Opener’s and Responder’s Rebids
      During this class you and your partner will bid several auctions where you must decide whether a bid is forcing and the level of your rebid based on your point count. Usually we have no problem knowing how to open the bidding and how to respond after the opening. Where things get tricky are the next bids. This will expose you to many situations which come up regularly during the bidding.
    • January 29 – Let’s take more tricks in Suit Contracts
      This time we are counting our losers. Are dummy’s trumps helpful in giving me a ruff? Do I have extra winners in the dummy that might help me rid of losers in my hand? What about a long suit in dummy? Can I establish it to make the little cards in that suit good? When and how to take a finesse!
