Graeme Plays Bridge

The Highs and Lows of Bridge
Sometimes bridge drives me crazy.
Long term winning ways
Better to find strategies that will work long term rather than stress too much about the result of one particular hand.
Jump Shifts
What does a jump shift show in bridge or, for that matter, what does a jump shift mean?
Opening bids and overcalls
An overcall is not an opening bid so responding to an overcall is nott the same as responding to an opening bid.
Nothing Fancy
Phew! Just easy bidding and play, straight down the middle.
Attempting to go quietly
When the urge to bid whispers in your ear it is hard to pass.
Grabbing the Notrumps
Who should bid notrumps first?
Watching Bridge
Watching bridge is so much easier than playing!
Giving and Receiving
Sometimes you have to give something away, like a trick, in order to get something back, like two tricks.
Seeing the Cards
Bridge is a lot easier when you can see the cards.
Rollercoaster 10 Hands
Some good scores and some bad ones. What a ride!
Right and Wrong

No Big Deal
How well can we do playing as simply as possible?
So Simple
In this livestream I tried to play as simply as possible.
