I am excited to offer a full schedule of online bridge classes for Fall 2020. My classes are not lectures. I give an engaging explanation of the day's topic via Zoom, but then you will play hands in the amazing Shark Bridge classroom to practice what you're learning. Afterwards, you see all four hands as I replay each deal to demonstrate the correct techniques.
