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 the 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 the 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.
