What a pleasure to have Yaniv Vax join us for a video lesson on the steps we can use to help us playing suit contracts.

  1. Count your trumps: find out how many your opponents have and then count backwards to get rid of them.
  2. Count losers : remember the long side of the trump suit is your base.
  3. Find ways to reduce your losers : trumping in short hand, discard them or use techniques like finesse.
  4. Communication: make sure to keep access (usually to the dummy) so you won’t end up with tricks you cannot win.

Thank you, Yaniv, for presenting this free bridge lesson for us!
