Surely a player of your bridge skills is familiar with most or all of the following tips you are about to read. But is your partner?
Fact #27 on Defense
When returning the suit partner has led, with two cards remaining return the higher; with three cards remaining, return the lowest. Say partner leads low and dummy has low cards. If you have A-10-5, play the ace and return the 10. If you have A-10-6-5, play the ace and return the 5.
Fact #28 on Defense
When partner leads low from length and dummy comes down with an honor and you have a higher and a lower honor, insert the lower honor if dummy plays low.
Say dummy has the Q-5-4 or the J-5-4 and you have K-10-6(x). If dummy plays low, play the 10. Say dummy has the K-7-6 or the Q-7-6 and you have A-J-3(2). If dummy plays low, play the jack.
