Bridge Lessons - Learn to Defend

  • Ted Adcock Center 535 Kelly Avenue Half Moon Bay, CA, 94019 United States (map)

Bridge players spend 25% of their time as declarer, 25% of their time as "dummy," and 50% of their time as a defender. Because we spend twice as much time defending as we do playing a hand, strong defensive skills are essential to success.

 Cheryl Haines and Maria Grigorieff will teach a series of nine lessons using the ACBL (American Contract Bridge League) book, "Defense in the 21st Century," second edition. Nine topics will be covered in in nine weekly lessons. Topics include:

  • o           Opening leads against notrump contracts

  • o          Opening leads against suit contracts

  • o          Third hand play

  • o          Second hand play

  • o          Defensive signals

  • o          Developing defensive tricks

  • o          Interfering with declarer

  • o          Making a plan

  • o          Preemptive bidding and responses
