When asked what is the single most important topic for declarer, I always answer: "Managing entries".
On many hands, the unsuccessful declarer's downfall was a result of his not being as efficient as he could have been with his entries.
Here are a few tips that are worth keeping in mind:
- When you have a choice of where to win a trick, ask yourself, "Where will I need to be later?"
- Don't be a grabber. A good declarer loses tricks early in the play.
- Learn to appreciate intermediate cards. Their importance cannot be overstated.
For each deal in the lesson, Marty will explain exactly how and what you should think about to maximize your entries. This includes:
- How to give yourself an extra chance to make the hand
- How to make the most of your long suits
- How to make the most of your intermediates
- When it is wrong to use up the honor from the short side first
- When should you take a safety play
- When you should "lose your losers early"
- When is it more helpful to count winners in a suit contract
- When should you play differently at matchpoints
