Here are some facts:
Almost 42% of deals are played in part-scores, so there is no question that they are very important. When playing matchpoints, the difference between making a part-score and going down one will have the same impact as if you were playing a game or slam.
Why aren't part-score deals featured more often in lessons, books, and newspaper columns? The answer is that they are frequently far more difficult to declare than a game or slam. Since part-scores require fewer tricks than other contracts, you would think that they are easier to make.
But that is NOT true. Instead, the reality is that since declarer has limited assets, and may even be forced to play in a 7-card trump fit, it is usually more difficult to make a part-score than a game or slam! When you are declarer on a deal where your side lacks the values for game, selecting the best line of play is often very difficult.
