Bridge Lessons: Two Over One in a Nutshell starts September 15, 2021

“Two Over One in a Nutshell,” a series of lessons for Bridge players, starts on Wednesday evening, September 15, 2021, and meets weekly through November 3, 2021. This will be a guided discussion of selected topics from “Two Over One in a Nutshell” by Dee Berry. This series is appropriate for players with a reasonably solid understanding of the basics of the game of Bridge.

Space is limited to 20 students.

What’s all this?

We’re announcing a series of lessons for beginning Bridge players: “Ten Weeks to Basic Bridge” beginning September 15, 2021. Your instructor is David Dailey, who has been playing Bridge since 2012 and teaching the game since 2017.

The full syllabus for this lesson series can be found at this link.

When you complete this series, you understand the fundamentals of the Two-Over-One Game Forcing bidding system. Two-Over-One is virtually a requirement for playing with more advanced partners.

You can take the lessons by yourself or with a partner.

How much?

Lesson fees are collected on a pay-as-you-go basis. You can stop or return at any time.
– $10 per person per week (includes each week’s materials)

– $Free for ages 18 & under


Classes are held at Seattle Bridge Center, 1539 NE 145th Street, Seattle WA 98125. We are a half-mile east of Interstate 5 at Exit 175 for NE 145th Street. We share a parking lot with the QFC supermarket and Dollar Tree store on the southeast corner of 15th Ave NE and NE 145th St. If you are facing the entrance to the Dollar Tree store, turn to your right and you will be facing our front door.

We have plenty of free parking. The intersection of 15th Ave NE and NE 145th St is served throughout the evening by Metro routes 65, 73, 347, and 348, and by other routes (64, 308, and 373) in the early evening.


This series begins on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, and meets weekly on Wednesday evenings through November 3. I have scheduled two optional followup classes for November 10 and 17.

Each class begins at 7pm and runs until 9:30pm. We start right at 7pm to make the best use of your time. Our doors are usually open by 6:45pm at the latest. Light snacks are provided; food is also available nearby at the Burger King restaurant or the QFC deli counter.
