Please recommend check-lists for partnerships to check that they are on the same page in different bidding contexts. For example:

My favorite partner and I travel on a semi-regular basis to play in a few regional tournaments with friends. We both play with a number of partners locally and are located some distance apart so we don't play on a regular basis.

When we travel together to these tournaments, we go over about 5-6 pages of notes covering all our bidding and carding agreements. We call these notes "car questions". It's extremely beneficial in helping us get attuned to playing together again and doing well.

The big advantage of a long time partnership is all those understandings. You know what your partner will do or is likely to do in any situation even if no detailed understanding is in place.

So partnership checklists do make a difference.

I've missed the exit on the highway when talking about system while trying to drive. Multitasking is hard. :)

Multi-tasking is even worse driving home and carrying-out the post-mortem! :)

I see the one I would have recommended is currently out of print.

Not that hard. Heck, we've had more trouble when not discussing our system.

Once each going to and coming from Gatlinburg, we missed exits. Once was heading down to Gatlinburg. Taking I-74 East from Indianapolis, we took I-275 to bypass Cincinnati and catch I-75 South in Kentucky. It was a rainy night and we missed the exit from I-275 to I-75 South in Kentucky. We figured out that we had made a mistake when we recrossed the Ohio River back into Ohio. The other time was coming back from Gatlinburg. Heading North on I-75, we were on the section of I-75 that it shares with I-64 (thus I-75/I-64). We realized something was wrong when we started seeing signs for Frankfort, KY which we knew wasn't passed through by I-75. :o

Good second-hand copies are available through AbeBooks for about £6, including postage.

When you are preparing for your first international representative event, much of which will be shown on BBO vugraph, the key is simple bridge and avoiding silly mistakes.

So I suggest you discuss 1-(Pass)-4 and go from there. You will be well ahead of some Scottish bridge legends.

On a more practical note, John Matheson has more testing questions than you will ever have time for, if you care to ask him.
