      @graeme I cant see this video either. Again, I clearly need it as I played the hand badly.

    That was a fun hand to play!
    After 3 – 6 – J – Q, it felt safe enough to play 5 to 9 which held.
    (East would have played T not J at trick 1 if he held that card.)
    Now, it was time to run the diamond suit and lead 3 to my A.
    This came down to :-
    . . . . . K
    . . . . . A7
    . . . . . . . . . . . JT
    K . . . . . . . . .
    K8 . . . . . .. .Q
    . . . . .K6
    . . . . .J
    On the lead of K, West was fixed. He had to drop 8 to keep A. K was dropped from the North hand and the clubs were now high for 13 tricks. It would not have helped for West to keep the spades and East the clubs.

    Great video to watch, and really clever thinking from Graeme around the hearts and then clubs.
    My problem was that (playing weak NT), West bid s, East therefore led him one and West took it with the Ace. So no need for clever thinking as to how to make 13 tricks, just pure fun-filled joy at making the other 12.

    @graeme …there is obviously a glitch in the system….I too am missing the link to the videos.
    I was pretty pleased to take 11 tricks….until I saw many others take more.

    @Graeme .. really like these videos that you are doing after we have played the hand … visualizing my errors is easier than trying to remember them! Thx

    @graeme great video. I spent the hand fretting about what I should discard on the diamonds instead of watching what the opposition discarded A real game changer lesson for me. Thanks

    A wonderful teaching tool @graeme – you always wonder how the top players make their contracts, and I can’t, even if I see all the cards! But both lessons show how to think “bridge” at a deeper level and I feel a regular pattern of that teaching aid would be most welcome for an average player like myself. I hope to see more of those type of videos. Thanks again – a great idea.

    Greatj lesson, @Graeme. Thanks so much. I played the hand three times before watching it. I kept wondering how to make 12 and 13 and now I know. Thanks.
