Learn to play bridge via Live Zoom Lessons from one of Australia's most popular and respected bridge teachers. 

Starting: Wednesday, 4 Aug

Lesson Time: 10 am - 11 am AEST

Lesson 1 - 4 Aug
What do we need to preempt at the two-level or higher?
Deciding to open at a high level requires less than an opening one bid, but what else do you need to consider?

Lesson 2 - 11 Aug
Vulnerability and position at the table when deciding to preempt  
The old rule of 2, 3, and 4 is examined in this lesson. Do you know what this is?

Lesson 3 - 18 Aug
How to respond to partner’s preempt?
Sometimes you have a good hand, sometimes less so, but it’s all about the fit when partner has opened with a preempt.

Lesson 4 - 25 Aug
How to manage when they preempt against us
The idea of prempting is to interfere with our bidding space, so new guidelines are needed to make sure we reach the best contract.
