Here are some facts:
Once dummy is tabled, and before you play a card, after counting your winners (or losers), you must STOP, THINK, and make a plan. There are many areas you must address. Here are several of the most important ones:
A. How do you plan to reduce your number of losers (or increase your number of winners)?
B. Identify the key suit to work on.
In a notrump contract, it is NOT always your longest combined suit. Frequently, it is a suit where you are missing the ace.
In a suit contract, if declarer's hand includes 4+ cards in a side suit, that is often the suit you must address.
C. What technique should you use in this key suit?
There are many possibilities, such as taking a finesse or losing a loser early.
C. Trump.
How many trump do the opponents have? Should you draw trump ASAP? (More often than not, the correct answer is NO.)
In this lesson, Marty will show you how to:

  • Give yourself an extra chance to make the hand.
  • Be more knowledgeable in deciding whether to draw trump.
  • Overcome bad splits.
