October 6th: Lesson 1 - The Support Double
Knowing whether opener has three or four cards of responder’s suit (or fewer than three) is important, and the support doubles and redouble is the answer.

October 13th: Lesson 2 - The Negative Double
When you, the responder, hold points but not a fit for partner, and the opponent’s overcall, the negative double is a fantastic way to describe certain hands. 

October 20th: Lesson 3 - The Redouble
One of the least understood bids in bridge is the redouble. It’s a great weapon to have, to show the balance of power. 

October 27th: Lesson 4 - The Reopening Double
Letting the opponents play at a low level is usually not best. Use double to really urge partner to bid.
