Slam Class #4(continued from last fall) - Randy Bennett

Slam Class #4(cont'd. from last fall) with Randy BennettTuesday, July 23rd (9:30 am to 11:30 am).
Lesson fee:  $10.  Registration is available online.

Already covered in slam classes 1, 2 and 3 were bidding slams in: NT auctions, Major Suit auctions and Minor Suit auctions.  Slam Class #4 covers slams in mixed auctions, where the suit (or NT) are not immediately established or apparent.  This class considers important topics such as responding to: reverses, 4th suit forcing, jump shifts, noname (that's right, no name), and my favorite which is a Marty Bergen invention, 5N pick a slam.  All in all, this class is fun, because we all want to get to our makeable slams!!
