This course reviews and expands upon topics from Intermediate Bridge I and adds topics covering what to do when the opponents get into the auction (and they will more often in this course).
This course is designed for bridge players who have a minimum of one year of experience playing duplicate bridge.
Using materials from many sources (primarily Richard Pavlicek) you will learn concepts, do exercises in class (homework outside of class) and finish the evening by playing hands relating to the topic. Snacks are also provided. You will be amazed at what you'll learn, even if you've played for years and years!
The in-class exercises are available in electronic format so students can play the hands at home and receive commentary on their bidding and play (requires Bridge Baron software).
Our course lecturer is the very popular Frank Smoot who has taught bridge to beginners and beyond in Palo Alto for 15+ years. Frank and our wonderful volunteers give students individual attention which helps our students learn in a fun environment.
