NOVICES TIP 760         

  The reason 3rd person (the defender) plays high is to make declarer work hard for the current trick- don't be a  cheap skate and just play a low one

 

      

 

 

         INTERMEDIATES TIP 760

         Playing with a weak NT partner 12-14 With 4333 and 11 points Pass when partner opens 1NT as with balanced hands its hard to eke out a 9th trick with such a balanced hand even though you might have 25 points between you.

       Playing with a strong NT partner 15-17 With 4333 and 9 points Pass when partner opens 1NT as with balanced hands it's hard to eke out a 9th trick with such a balanced hand even though you might have 25 points between you..

 

 

 

        ADVANCED TIP 760

        If you fancy your chances of a slam, make a cue bid or splinter on the way to 4 or 4 –  it's a no cost bid as you have not gone past 4 or 4 if partner has not added to the conversation and you wll still be able to stop at one of those contracts..
