Partnership Guidance Counselling

 

♠ ♠ ♠ 

  ♥    Thank you Bill for an entertaining and informative lesson on the above subject      

Here is a snippet of the information Bill covered during his lesson

 

Successful Partnerships

1.  Have a good rapport at the table

2.  Agree on important sets of bidding principles

2.  Play a compatible level of system complexity

4.  Have an effective way of post-morteming (within 24 hours)

 

Bill suggested to keep your partnership fresh you can add a few gadgets, change your system, commit to the Keller convention, or take a break from the partnership (trial separation)

Systems were discussed, it doesn't matter how simple or complex yours is as long as you both understand and follow it.

A new KLTC Basic System Card was introduced and discussed, and will be made available to all members so they can start thinking and planning their personal systems/cards with their partners

 

"Of all the strategies available to keep a partnership strong and maximise your score, one stands out as by far the most valuable..."

It is...

DO NOT CONDUCT POST-MORTEMS AT THE TABLE
