Structured Classes on Defense Techniques with Mick Riccio

A series endorsed by Eddie Cantor who suggested Mick put it in a book.

Making the best possible lead. Should it be active or passive, how do you know. Rating the table. How experts know what is in each hand.
Signalling.  Why it is so important and how to do it brilliantly. The obvious switch, what it is and when to use it. First discard.  The magic of discarding and how to read it. Continuation of defense when you gain or regain the lead. How to tell your partner what you want.

Each class fee is $20.00.
