092) Developing Your Defense Skills
 

D-E-F-E-N-S-E: In a bridge bidding auction, you and your partner win the contract, or you lose the contract. Losing the contract might be disappointing, but it does not mean game over. With the opening lead, the battle for masterpoints has just begun. Every bridge player knows the thrill of defeating a contract is sweet. Up your defense skills in a new online, seven-week defense practice course. The course will be laser-focused on defensive playing. Each week we briefly review a defensive topic, such as opening lead, signaling, second hand low, and third hand high, and then players will assemble at the virtual tables to bid, defend, and discuss hands. Each sessions includes topic-based instruction and then it is off to the tables where everyone gets to play bridge using the topic of the day.
