DVD 8-The Losing Trick Count (LTC)
The Losing Trick Count (LTC)

This is a very useful “tool” to help find low point games once a fit has been identified. The first session goes through the basics of the LTC showing how to calculate your losers and assumes no previous knowledge.

 

The second part then expands this knowledge by introducing “correcting” factors that allow the count to be more accurate and ends with a table of the adjustments (good and bad).

 

There is no doubt that the LTC is very good for distributional hands. This DVD is not for the faint-hearted. The basic first part needs to be fully understood before attempting the more advanced second part - the beauty of being on DVD is, of course, you can go back and pause the play as often as necessary to ensure understanding before progressing.

 

It will however justify the time spent.
