Starting: Monday, December 6th

December 6th: Lesson 1 - Cue / Control Bidding

The best way to proceed towards slam is to discuss with partner WHICH first and/or second round controls you hold, so that partner can assess how it works for them. Cue bidding will help you with this. 

December 13th: Lesson 2 - Key Card Blackwood
Discovering which of the five key cards, which includes the trump King, (and the trump Queen) gives you more accuracy for bidding the best slams. Key Card Blackwood will help you with this.

December 20th: Lesson 3 - Splinter Bids

Showing shortages and great trump fits is where splinter bids come into their own. Learn all about them.
