You are the player and he is your guide to making the crucial decisions at each stage of bidding and play. Rigal grades your performance and that of your partner and offers his unique analysis. The hands are instructive but practical. A great way to hone bidding

BID - PLAY - DEFEND: a 3-Part Series with the Bridge Professors

BID: When is it right to bid over the opponents' game contract even when you think you won't make your contract? That is the topic of sacrifices.

PLAY: Always pull trump first, right? Well. not always. There are important exceptions to pulling trump first. Learn how to judge when it's right not to pull trump first.

DEFEND: There's active defense -- taking your tricks right away -- and there's passive defense -- waiting for your tricks to come to you. When one is right, the other is wrong...but how can you tell? Find out what to look for to know which defense is called for.

Each lesson will consist of an interactive lecture with demo hands and a session on Shark Bridge during which you get to practice what you're learned and get further instruction! You'll also receive class notes before and after the sessions, and access to a recording of the lectures for your review. Taught by Play Bridge At Home's core teachers -- Giorgia Botta, John Ramos, and Christopher Rivera.
