Terms 2

When we do webinars, we often get asked about certain terms that we use frequently. Bridge has it's own language and sometimes it's easy to forget that not everyone has heard all of the lingo. Learning some of these terms will help you follow along with lessons and articles. Some of them are just for fun, though, so don't worry too much if you don't get the last few. The first part of this quiz is here.
