TIP OF THE DAY

Managing Entries

As declarer, we often need entries in order to play a suit from a particular hand.

At the start of a hand, it isn't always possible to identify the entries required in which case we should aim to keep entries in each hand.

Suppose that the opening lead is in the following suit:

A Q T

K J 9

We will win three tricks in this suit, but we can vary our play according to where we want to win the first trick and where we expect to need entries later in the hand.

a) Suppose that we want to win the lead in North. If we want to retain entries to the South hand, we should win with A and follow suit with 9. We now have two entries to the South hand, but if necessary we could replace one of these by an entry to the North hand.

b) If we wanted instead to retain entries to the North hand, we should win the trick with North's 10. We now have two entries to the North hand, but if necessary we could replace one of these by an entry to the South hand.

An incorrect way to play this suit is to win the first trick with A and follow suit with J. We now have one entry to each hand, but no possibility of a second entry in either hand.
