"Beyond Intermediate Bridge" (WKS 653) covers in detail many modern conventions such as Key Card, Blackwood, Negative Doubles, Ogust and Drury with emphasis on declarer play and defensive signals. Duplicate bridge tactics are also discussed. Classes meet Thursday, June 23 through August 25, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Cost for registration is $140.
