CHRISTMAS TIP

When Playing as Declarer ( particularly in NT Contracts) :

1. Count SURE Winners between your Hand and Dummy's.

2. Identify SUIT where you wish to develop  Tricks and as soon as possible Play that SUIT to force out missing Winners.

3. NEVER exhaust your SUITs with the SURE Tricks before you have  set up your extra winners where possible.
