Week 1: Taking more tricks as declarer
When declaring a hand we always want to look to take more tricks than we deserve.
After the opening lead, declarer should always try to make a plan for the hand.
Making a plan involves many steps and it takes time and practice to improve in this area. The great thing about improving your declarer play is that it is something that can be improved at home as an individual.
There are various books and computer programs that can help. My recommendations are Planning the play of a bridge hand by Barbara Seagram and David Bird (available as a book or computer program) and the BridgeMaster2000 Audrey Grant edition computer program.
