In Bridge, bidding is a language between you and your partner. One must use two words to describe your hand, suit and the number of tricks that your team might make. Conventions are the means to expand your bidding vocabulary. This course will study the most common conventions plus playing time to use these conventions. The text that we will use is 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know by Barbara Seagram and Marc Smith.
* This class continues from an earlier semester and is partially preregistered with previous students. Classroom
