This tennis star uses bridge games as opportunities for relaxation. When she travels, she likes to find nearby bridge clubs and join in. She once said, 'No matter where I go, I can always make new friends at the bridge table'

She wrote the introduction to Audrey Grant's 'The club series, Introduction to Bridge!' She's also teamed up with another famous player in an email course designed to help teach bridge to newcomers (bonus point for this player too)

The Laws of Bridge

Players have an obligation to abide by the Laws of Bridge, so whilst you do not need to be able to give a ruling and even if you can you should NOT and MUST CALL THE DIRECTOR ( Law 81C : The director (not the players) has the responsibility for rectifying irregularities and redressing damage. )

Perhaps the most important Law of bridge in a club is Law 74 : Conduct and Etiquette

74A Proper Attitude ...1.  A player should maintain a courteous attitude at all times,.

There was a great deal of variation on this bid 

4 looking for game in either minor


3NT because of the vulnerability prefer to play than defend

4 Pushing for a minor slam if partner bids 4♠ a 5♣ bid suggests extra strength than a jump straight to 5♣ 

one to discuss with your partner.

Declarer Play

contract 4 West leads 4 

If the spade finesse loses a club return puts the contract at great risk. Can you set up dummy's spades without losing the lead to East ?  Yes, win the lead in dummy and play a diamond to the 9 allowing West to win. If W returns a trump again win in dummy, diamond to the ace, J♠ winning with the A♠ in dummy throwing last spade on K  now you have a ruffing finesse. Even if W wins the contract is secure.
