Modern Contract Bridge
In this course a preliminary lesson is provided for those new to the game, starting with whist, the bidding
process, and the 1NT opening bid.
The main body of the course consists of 12 lessons. We review practical hand evaluation, the stayman
convention and forcing and non forcing responses to one notrump opening bids. We define narrow point ranges for minimum, medium and
maximum one level bids, how we use these to accurately describe the strength of our hands. We learn how to reach the optimum contract,
and advance to 'taking a preference', reverses, bidding strong hands, the overcall and responses, and the takeout double and responses.
Review lessons are included.
The course consists of 13 lessons, held at our playing site, and are 2 1/2 to 3 hours long,
with a coffee break. Coffee and cookies are complimentary.
Cost is $100. Instructor: John Godfrey
