Description: Once your opponents join the auction the tools to find your bonus scores in game and slam change.  Learn several standard techniques to leverage your opponent’s bid when they interfere. Some topics include cue-bid limit raises, law of total tricks, two suited bids, and doubles. Some of the questions we will explore are: When should you overcall? Advance? Preempt? What can you do when your opponents preempt? When can you make a sacrifice bid? When is a double for penalty? Which bids are forcing?

Participants in this class should already have a good understanding of Opening Bids, Stayman, and Transfers.
