We had our seventh lesson where we talked about preempts and 2C openings. Remember that preempts are intended to make bidding hard for the opponents by taking up lots of space; however, 2C is not a preempt! It is a conventional bid used to show extremely strong hands (22+ HCP or 9+ tricks).
Below is a recording of the lecture. Here is the link to this week's auto-graded review exercises.
