Declarer Play Series 1: Five Tips to Simplify Entries – Recognizing the Importance of the Link Card

Improve your declarer play. Make the most of the entries between declarer and the dummy, even some hiding in full view!

An entry is usually considered a high card to give declarer the chance to get to the dummy or to declarer's hand. Yet an entry from one hand to the other has two parts. There is the winner in the hand you are trying to reach. Equally important is the lower-ranking Link Card that provides the transportation to the entry. Think of Entry as L'Entry as a reminder of the importance of the link card.

The Five Tips to Simplify Entries is an intriguing, simple, and practical book. You'll be in charge of knowing how to improve your declarer play.
