INTERMEDIATES - "Common Conventions" (Thursdays 3:00-5:00 Sep 9 to Oct 28)
In this Series, you will learn about various Common Conventions.  Often players know the first bids of a Convention, but using Conventions effectively requires that one knows the follow up bids, as well as when to use or not to use the bid.
