'Seven days without Bridge makes one weak!'
The real test of a bridge player isn't in keeping out of trouble, but in escaping once in.
One advantage with bad bidding is that you get practice at playing bad contracts.
It is not the handling of difficult hands that makes the winning player. There aren't enough of them. It is the ability to avoid messing up the easy ones.
