M C & G Bridge Studio 24-Jun-2018
Tip of the Week:
Especially at Matchpoints, don’t be afraid to make penalty doubles! Far too often, your opponents will waltz in to your auction and try and steal it from you – so be sure to punish them if they overstep their boundary! When considering making a penalty double, look at your quick tricks – Aces and Kings -, your trumps, and what you partner has shown. If you think there’s a good chance you will set your opponents, double them! A good rule of thumb is, if you’re opponents aren’t making some doubled contracts (about 10-15%), you aren’t doubling enough!
