    Partner leads ♣ 3 (third and low) and declarer wins your ♣ J with ♣ A.. Declarer ruffs ♣ 9 and you give standard present count with ♣ Declarer leads ♦ 5 to her ♦ J and partner's ♦ K, as you show an even number. Partner continues ♦ 4 (original fourth best) which you win with ♦ T. Looking at. When the auction has ended, the player to declarer's left plays a card, and that's that; unlike declarer play or defense, the opening lead involves only one trick (the first). Actually, opening leads are frequently the cause of victory or defeat on an entire hand and are treated with respect even by experts, who know well how challenging they can be.

There is a number of signals types in defense, and you must choose the type which fits you and use it. Find the best bridge books for advanced players that can teach you how to play bridge.

    A partner worried about a convention inevitably makes more errors in the bidding, play, and defense, not to mention screwing up the convention if it comes up. Pick up the slack for a weaker player The better player in a partnership should make the weaker player feel at ease. These terms are used in contract bridge, using duplicate or rubber scoring. Some of them are also used in whist, bid whist, the obsolete game auction bridge, and other trick-taking glossary supplements the Glossary of card game terms..

We look at when to return partner's lead and when to shift to another suit. Defense is the hardest part of playing bridge, but that doesn't mean that it's impossible to learn.
