    The Sneak Attack. It seems to happen quite often. The opposition bid 3NT, not with a balanced 17 count opposite a balanced 12 count with holds in every suit but “just in case it makes”! Or, alternatively, because they were asked by... read more here

    Opposite Approaches. Game values? If you have them, and you have a 4-4 major fit, then it seems a good idea to play in 4 of that major. Normally. With less than game values, it can also be correct to seek out a major fit, too. One hand below took... read more here

    Proving North Wrong. One mark of a good partnership is that when one player takes a rather unusual action which backfires, that their partner is, at least outwardly, very understanding. The “sinner” feels bad enough in recording a... read more here

    The Easy Way, The Obscure Way or One Down. I have mentioned more than once that even playing Pairs, there is a lot of good sense in taking a line to ensure your contract and worry about possible overtricks later. They are certainly worth having,... read more here

    Creating an Illusion. When you are playing Teams, you do want to beat any contract of the opponents. You do not want them scoring an overtrick or three either if they are at a sensible level. A couple of imps in the out column would be annoying... read more here
