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)

Prefer a ruffing finesse to a standard finesse.

For example, with AQJ… opposite a singleton

it is usually better to cash the Ace and run the Queen, discarding a loser, than to finesse the Queen.

Declarer Play

Contract 3NT, West leads 7♠. Can you make against best defence? 

South was a brilliant young American, Mike Lawrence, one of the Dallas Aces who recovered the world title for the USA in 1970. In 1966, when this hand was played at the Summerton Club in San Francisco, he was less well known. Winning the first trick with 10♠, he immediately returned a Spade. West ducked, perforce, as otherwise, declarer has nine tricks. Now came the second key play, a DIAMOND from dummy. Three hearts, three clubs, two spades and the diamond Lawrence eventually established were enough tricks to fulfil the contract. Clearly, if declarer had tried to establish the clubs the defence would have had five tricks, one spade, one club and three diamonds.
