Ken is offering two bidding classes designed for players who want to progress to a more advanced bidding system. We will focus on a complete treatment of the 2/1 bidding system. The classes meet twice a week. Monday’s class is lecture oriented while Wednesday’s class is an interactive bidding session using the material from the lecture session. Both sessions are video-recorded and stored on-line for remote viewing and playback. The courses have received excellent feedback with many returning students.

Advanced Bidding Part 1: This course starts Monday, March 5, 2018 and will last 10 - 12 weeks. We’ll cover 2/1 core systems in detail. These conventions will improve one’s competitiveness with well-established systems commonly used by 2/1 players. The class meets on M/W at 10:30 to 11:30 AM and costs $100.

Advanced Bidding Part 2: This course starts in the Fall 2018 and will last 10 - 12 weeks. This course will focus on more core 2/1 systems along with modern conventions that have proven effectiveness. The class will meet on M/W at 10:30 to 11:30 AM and cost $100.
