Bridge Tips From Eddie Kantar
  If partner makes a nice play, a kind word or two at the end of the hand goes a long way.
  The speed of the play, may be a clue to declarer's problem. When playing a 4-3 trump fit, play usually slows to a crawl.
  When two possible defenses present themselves to defeat a contract, both equally likely, select the simpler.  (Unless you are looking to make an appearance in a newspaper column.) 
  If you can see the winning defense, take charge.  Don't put additional pressure on partner if you don't have to.
  Keep partner's skill level in mind.  Lead a weaker player by the hand.
  Watch partner's spot card signals.  The stronger your partner, the more meaningful they are.
  Keep your singletons and doubletons in the middle of your hand.  Some players watch where your cards come from.
  Try not to guard against non-existent or highly unlikely dangers; guard only against those that are consistent with the bidding and play.
  As declarer, being able to take a trick with one of two equal cards, take the trick with the higher equal.  The exception is at notrump when you have an AK stopper. If you plan to take the trick, take it with the king.  Taking the first trick with the ace is very suspicious. If that were your only stopper, why didn't you hold up?
