                                Kathie's Tip Of The Week

It is a fact that most newer players are not comfortable defending, and think they will score better by declaring - hence they often OVERBID. For up and coming players - after a game go back and check some of your poor scores and see if you should have defending rather than declaring.  Experienced players will often bid one more hoping you will bid one too high. Learn to defend and don't get pushed around.
