Counting Tricks and Tricks for Counting


The task of keeping track of the cards played can be a daunting one. Yet it is a crucially important skill and there is really no substitute for it. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be as hard as you might think. As Graeme explains in this video, you can count a suit by simply keeping track of how many tricks your opponents follow to. If an opponent shows out of a suit, you will know exactly how many his partner has.
