C & G Bridge Studio 8-Jun-2014
Tip of the Week:
Play bridge like a Pro even if you are not one! Getting ready for the Can-At.
-- Each deal is a new ball game. Let us say you start off with TWO top
boards, you are on a roll and even if one hand goes bad later on you feel you
can recoup. If you started of with TWO bad boards, do not lose site of
your goal. Keep playing with your partner and even if you cannot
come first, you may well be in the placings. Too many games are lost by
simply dwelling on the bad start and bad boards. Experts will leave the
disasters in the vault, and go for the good boards. If you do not forget
your disasters you will then lose your confidence and not be able to focus on
the future boards.
best partners will never harp on the error, but will tell partner
to forget about it. There is always time after the game to discuss
the issue and how you BOTH could have prevented the error. If it is
your error, say you are sorry and get on with the game.
Congratulations & Kudos Congratulation to Jim

double and bid spades, but its less descriptive. Better
