We have a new session of classes with Mark Raggio starting this week on Thursday, June 27 at 5:30. This 8-session course is all about the play of the hand. The dates, topics and costs can be found at the bottom of this email. If you are working to improve your game, this course will benefit you even if you have taken it before. Often when players are learning, so much effort goes into learning bidding that learning the skills needed to play a hand are pushed back to “later” Well, “later” is now, so plan to come and improve your playing skills this Thursday.
$90 including Book
$70 if you already have the book
$50 if you already took class and this is a refresher course
