C & G Bridge Studio 21-Dec-2014
Tip of the Week:
This is the C in the ABCs of basic declarer
play. More contracts have failed because the declarer did not Consider
the Order. Be sure to know which suit to attack first! Often
you will have some sure tricks, even a running suit. But before you run
that suit - consider
whether or not you need to establish another suit or trick first. Before
pulling trump consider
whether or not you might want some of
the trumps left in dummy to ruff your losers. Always work through the
order of play in your head - before you play to trick
