Playing: Interesting hands

These hands have caught my imagination. They are a challenge and may not acually make but provide an insight into unusual hands

Example Hands

Don't forget all the other techniques as they may apply as well.

  • Remember to count your top tricks.
  • Identify any potential blockage.
  • Identify any entries needed to maintain communication.
  • Look for a long suit that will yield extra tricks.
  • Be prepared to lose a trick to gain more
  • Try to establish your tricks early, whilst you are still in control
  • Identify honour's which need to be established
  • Count you cards on the initial lead and decide if you need to hold up
  • Have you got any ruffing value from a shortage in a suit
When you are ready click the 'start play' button.
Click the card you want to play when the arrow is showing.
