Advanced Card Play
Advanced Card Play

This is a ten week course designed for players with some experience, or having taken our Bridge 1 and 2 courses.

This course focusses on both declarer and defence card play. Some knowledge of duplicate bridge and some experience of bridge card play will be helpful, but complex bidding expertise is not needed.

The course should help declarers to find the best strategy for their cards, and to look for the key clues from the defence play to make extra tricks.

Conversely, defenders should improve their ability to communicate with each other through the card play and to keep declarer to the minimum number of tricks.

Players can sign up for the whole course, or take individual lessons as suits them. The sessions on Attitude and Count and Suit Preference Signals do go well together.

Defence is about team work. Regular partnerships could well get the best out of the defence sessions by attending together.
