Learn to play Duplicate Bridge! This course is for the bridge player who wants to compete on a level playing field. In duplicate, everyone plays the same hands, so the luck of the deal is eliminated. Win playing defense! You will learn how to handle the cards at the table, score on wireless equipment, fill out convention cards and learn basic laws of the American Contract Bridge League. Also taught will be movement to the different tables and several common duplicate competitive bids. Play as you learn. Lists of local open duplicate games will be included.

Instructor: Gretchen Blakey is a life long bridge player with ten years of duplicate play at the local, state and national level. She is a Bronze Life Member with 640 masterpoints and attends many tournaments each year. As an American Contract Bridge League director, she runs the local Monday afternoon game.
