TIP OF THE WEEK:
the dummy is faced and the Declarer is making their plan - as defender it
is time for you to make your plan as well. Can you see where declarer will
take their tricks? Do you see a source of tricks for your side? Will
declarer be taking a finesse decide now whether you should duck or play
high, and be ready for the play. How many points does your partner likely have?
EVERYONE should be forming a plan when the dummy comes down not just

Solution to Last Week's Quiz:
have the following:
H A K
D A Q J 9 7 6 3
C A 10 5
open 1D and partner responds with 1H. What is your rebid?
Answer: You want to force another bid from
partner. Bidding 3D can be passed, you only have 2 hearts, and you cant
risk notrump with no Spade control. Time to be creative. Bid 3C
this is a jump shift and is game forcing. Partner must
make another call. If partner has a spade control they will likely
bid 3NT; if partner has 6 hearts for a 3H rebid, you can bid 4H. If
partner bids clubs, go back to diamonds. This bid is a bit of a lie (a fake
jump shift) and if you want to make a small lie it is best to make it in a minor
suit not a major suit.
