Bridge tip from ACBL magazine
"Pick up the Pace: Slow play is exhausting to everyone at the table. If you haven't decided on the 'right' bid after 15 seconds, more time is unlikely to bring divine inspiration. Stop agonizing, relieve partner of the suspense and bid something." Jan. 2017 p.58


Happy Bridging,
Anna Janssen
