      Course Overview

       

      You are on defense half of the time in bridge.  Because of this, high scores can be achieved in bridge by simply taking the tricks to which you are entitled on defense.  Most players fail to get all of their tricks because they simply look, sometimes in vain, to find a way to win the immediate trick.  They do not have a concept of declarer’s game plan and how to thwart it.  As a result, they do not have an overall defensive strategy.  In this course, we will look at the five main defensive strategies in bridge, how to recognize which one to use on which hand, and how to execute each one.  The course will be held on the five Fridays in August and will cover the fopics listed above.
