Inescapable FACTS:
1. Every player (and partnership) would like to do better than they presently do.
2. Unless you and your partner declare and defend far better than "the field," the only possible way to significantly improve your results is to try to win the board in the auction. (Which could also be thought of as causing the opponents to lose the board in the auction.)
How can you win the board in the auction? By being super-aggressive competitively! If you can allow yourself to do this:
a. Your opponents will often NOT get to their correct contract. Of course you must also strive to not allow them to play in part-scores at a low level.
b. Your aggressive bid (or frisky lead-directing double) will enable your partner to make the best opening lead for your side. In addition, by immediately telling partner what you have, that definitely will improve his bidding.
If instead, you compete only with obvious hands, your matchpoint score will be dependent on your pair's ability in card play. But since very few players consistently take more tricks than other players do, the result of that approach is likely to produce average results. And at the end of the game, once again you end up with a mediocre score.
In this lesson, Marty will show you how to:

  • Avoid playing "scared bridge"
  • Cause your partner to bid more accurately than he ever has
  • KNOW what is the #1 key to better competitive bidding
  • Ensure that partner makes the best lead for your side
  • KNOW which overcalls are the most effective
  • Make aggressive bids that are virtually risk-free
  • KNOW which bids are guaranteed to help your partner the most
  • Give your opponents an unsolvable problem
  • KNOW when being vulnerable can work to your advantage
  • Resolve whether "to bid or not to bid" with non-obvious hands
  • KNOW the right approach to handle very distributional hands
  • Become more knowledgeable about sacrifice do's and dont's
  • Compete with hands where other players will settle for an unhelpful pass
  • Push your opponents around, and cause them to be eager to leave your table!
