Playing a No Trump Contract


  • Find fit in a long suit to use like trump, pull first regardless of strength.
  • Identify stoppers (A, K, Q)
  • Don’t necessarily play A, K, Q first, otherwise lower cards will be winners and you will loose transport options.
  • Identify transport needs and solutions.
  • Consider getting your losers out of the way first.
    • Keep in mind the number of tricks you can lose use before affecting your contract.
  • Look at numbers of cards in each suit, can loosers be discarded on other tricks?
