I am excited to continue with online bridge classes this spring! All my lessons
are more than just lectures. I give an engaging explanation of the day's topic;
then you play deals to practice what you're learning in my awesome Shark Bridge
classroom. Afterwards, you see all four hands as I review the best techniques.
