If you ever visit a bridge club, where you don’t know any of the players, how would you know the skill level of your opponent? The answer is simple: the expert Declarer takes the longest time to play the first card. The expert invests more time in planning, and thereby ensures best results and faster play of the hand.
The lower level bridge player feels ‘guilty’ of taking up the time in planning, and therefore, plays the first card following the lead almost instantly. As a result, the Declarer gets in trouble. The end result is that the Declarer takes up more time to play the hand and does not win the maximum number of tricks.
This 6-week course will train you to take the time to plan the play of the hand, and will highlight what is involved in the Declarer’s plan. Since there are some different considerations in the plan of a suit contract versus a No Trump contract, the first series will concentrate on a suit contract. A second course on No Trump will follow.
If you miss a lesson, no worries… you will be provided with the recording and the hands that we practice in class.
