Link to this BBO Movie: Card play quiz
General Type: Defensive play single dummy
Voice Track: Yes/mixed (sometime off)
Quizes: Yes
Time to complete: about 5 minutes


Another short quiz. Don't let the title trick you, this is about defensive card play. The summary says reading declarer's intention, and that is probably a suitable subtitle for this movie. The hand is a straight forward one with some card counting required.. the counting declarer's tricks seems to go by the wayside in the discussion (it is implied, but not spelled out for the target audience of beginners/low intermediates). Trick one goes wayyyyyy to fast to know what is going on. Then trick two is slow, some more discussion there as to why the assumption about jack-fourth with partner is assumed would be useful Then four or five tricks are played at once, a key point easily being missed as the cards fly fastt an furious. I think, especially for beginners, this needs to slow down. Playing one trick per frame.
