M C & G  Bridge Studio   9-Sep-2018

Tip of the Week: At trick one, take your time to make your plan! Regardless of if you are a defender or the declarer, take a few extra seconds at trick one to figure out how many tricks you can take easily, what your plan is to take more tricks, and what could go wrong. This will guide you through the play later on, and you will certainly be glad you took the extra few seconds to plan out the hand. And if you're the dummy - don't play to trick one until declarer calls a card, even if it's a singleton!

Kudos & Congratulations: Congratulations to Candace Flemming and Roddy Mackenzie for their 70.42% game on Thursday afternoon! Additionally, kudos to everyone who's been helping out with the reno & redocorations at the Bridge Studio - every little bit helps!
