The second in a new series of classes developed by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) designed to introduce a new player to the game of duplicate bridge. This second course - PLAY OF THE HAND IN THE 21ST CENTURY focuses on the play of the hand. This class is a stand alone class and the first course in the series is not a prerequisite for this class; however, students should be familiar with bidding concepts introduced in the first class. The focus of the class will be on declarer play. While designed for players interested in duplicate bridge, the class is also beneficial to players interested in playing social bridge.

The third in a series of courses for beginning and advancing players offered by the American Contract Bridge League and KSU. In this course, we look at techniques for defeating contracts that declarer would make if we do not defend carefully. We start by looking at the guidelines for handling specific situations on defense: opening leads, third-hand play, second-hand play and signals. We move on to look at how the defenders establish winners and take their sure tricks. Then we see how the defenders can interfere with declarer's plan to make the contract. Finally, we take a look at how the defenders formulate their plan and put it into action. This course does not require completion of the first two courses in the series, but it is recommended that the student consider taking those classes prior to taking this class.
