Join American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) accredited bridge teacher Dr. Susan J. Fishbein in this new, eight-week course. Bridge Basics 2: the Play of the Hand focuses on the strategies required for successful declarer play at bridge. The course builds on participants' knowledge of fundamental bidding practices and applies that knowledge to the winning of contracts through the application of specific playing techniques. The goal of Bridge Basics 2: the Play of the Hand is to provide students with a well-rounded and complete foundation for enjoying the game independently and confidently and for continued learning in the game of bridge, a game for a lifetime!
Bridge Basics 2: the Play of the Hand is a great follow-up for students who have taken Bridge Basics 1 — or have familiarity with basic bidding procedures and some play of the hand, but are looking to learn and practice strategies required for successful declarer play.
