Lesson One: MiniBridge and introduction to cards.

MiniBridge is a simplified form of the complex card game Contract Bridge designed to expose newcomers to declarer and defensive playing techniques without the burden of learning a detailed bridge bidding system.

Throughout all our lesson you will be learning MiniBridge.

Bridge uses one standard card deck of 52 card. No jokers.

Deck has 4 suits: Spades, Clubs (black color), Diamonds, Hearts (red color). For now ALL suits are equal (later will be explained which and why suits are not equal).

Each suit has 13 cards: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2. There is no 1.

In each suit: Ace is the highest, King is the second highest, Queen is the third highest, after that Jack, 10, 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2.
