(271) Smother Plays

Hi All -

This month we take a look at some Declarer play topics. Most of these topics are focused around NT contracts, but many of them apply similarly in suit contracts. Our discussions this month include:

(271) Smother Plays
(272) Threat Cards
(273) Squeezes - The Basics
(274) End Plays in NT Contracts

This week we are focused on the Smother Play. The smother play is a Declarer play technique for producing additional tricks when taking a normal finesse or playing our honors from the top seem unlikely to be successful.

Take a look at this and see if it is something you can add to your Declarer play arsenal.
