Holy Maloly - it's FARGO!

I was watching the new season of Fargo on FX last night and guess what - the program featured a duplicate bridge tournament - the Wildcat Regional. The starring couple, a girl on  probation and her probation officer, finished as "the third runner-up" and were complimenting each other on their table play and intimidation factor. She was very happy over her 10   hand, although astute duplicate players would realize that all east/west players would have the same hand. Still it was pretty cool seeing the bridge action on national TV and watching their banter over the joy of finishing near the top. If you missed it, you can watch the episode by clicking here.

And the second week, the name of the episode was "The Principle of Restricted Choice". I haven't ever heard that mentioned outside of bridge, but not too much was mentioned in this one other than about going to a tournament.

A HELPFUL HINT

     

HOW  DO  YOU  HOLD YOUR  CARDS?

The problem:

  1. I have heard that some teachers advocate putting your cards in suits, but not in sequence within the suits, that is, instead of holding these 3 spades as 5-8-Q, hold them as 8-Q-5 so that when you extract a card from your hand, an astute opponent will not know if this is your last, your highest or your lowest card in the suit. Some teachers even tell you to not arrange them in suits. After all we don't want to give the opponents any help! 
  2. I have also seen players inch their hand towards the center of the table as they tire later in the day, giving the opponents a pretty nice peek at their cards. Most opponents don't want to see your cards, but one accidental peek will sometimes allow a contract to be made when it cannot be made otherwise.
  3. As our eyes get older and are strained more into a session, we sometimes hold the cards farther away so that we can focus on them. Then # 2 (above) becomes relevant!

The solution:

Hold your cards below the table level. Nobody can see where the cards are being extracted and nobody can peek at your cards. Try it - once you get used to it, it will be second nature!

You can thank me later.
