The Just Beyond Beginner Bridge course takes place every Wednesday at 9:00 AM ET, beginning June 15th

The next 6 week series is independent of the two prior ones.  This is a good time to enter.  We will focus on declarer play.  We already worked on several bidding conventions and slam tries   Now you will learn how to play the cards to ensure you make every possible contract.  In  “Just Beyond Beginner Bridge.” Jeff will introduce new topics to bring your game to a higher level, and give you plenty practice of the play of the hand techniques you’ve learned.   You will be the declarer for every hand.  This means instead of taking turns with others, you get the most possible practice in every 2 hour session.

If you never had one of Jeff Badler’s classes, come see why many of his classes have been going continuously for more than a year.

Beyond Beginner Bridge is taught in 6 week increments.  Often a class builds on previous ones.  Don’t worry… if you miss a session, Jeff will provide a good quality recording, the hands and class notes (given in advance) so you will never fall behind. 

This will be billed as a 6 week course. The cost is $270 or $210 if you have the Club’s Easy Pass.   Use this class to really solidify your game and with practice, you will a much better player than when you started.  When the 6 week concludes, Jeff will introduce another group of playing and bidding techniques.  


The Whole Megillah

Whole Megillah comes from a Yiddish expression which means the entirety of something, involving a long, complicated story. You’ll be bidding and playing lots of hands every session. You will get to declare every hand. Then each hand will be explained. The course includes lessons on pre-emptive bids, utilizing 2 over 1, alternate game forcing bids and slam auctions including Key-Card Blackwood. Always something fun and interesting.

This is one of Jeff’s most popular classes. The Whole Megillah class has been running continuously with a loyal following for over 17 months, with no end in sight.  You will learn new techniques to make you a better declarer, and gain the confidence to get you ready for competitive duplicate bridge.  Many students have found their future bridge partners for competitive bridge games.  This class is intended for those who have completed the Beginner series or equivalent experience.

There are two versions of this class taking place.  On Friday mornings, Jeff teaches, “The Whole Megillah…From the Beginning.”  The Monday sessions are more advanced, as most participants have been attending for at least 10 months.
