Daily Bridge Tip 50

  • The right bid with one partner may be the wrong bid with another.
  • More points are lost through cowardice than recklessness. It’s a bidder’s game.
  • If you agree a convention, be prepared for interference and decide how to handle it.
  • System cannot replacement judgement. Nothing can.
  • Don’t be afraid to bid against experts. They don’t like coping with preempts any more than you do.
  • One great secret of winning bridge is knowing when to pass.
  • Don’t expect to defeat every contract you double. If you do, you are not doubling enough.
  • If partner makes a mistake, don’t assume they are crazy. Assume they had a reason for the action they took.
  • If partner makes a mistake, consider whether YOU might have have done something differently.
  • REMEMBER IT’S ONLY A GAME. ENJOY IT AND HAVE FUN!
