Level one complete!

We dug out our old copy of BridgeMaster 2000 the other day. Once again, I went through the first 36 deals on level 1 fairly quickly. A couple of the hands near the end tripped me up momentarily. I need to remember to count points and remember the bidding on a hand to gain clues as to the holdings of the opponents.

It felt good to see the check-marks beside all of the hands on Level 1 when I was finished. It makes me feel as though I am making progress in my quest to learn the game properly. But I wonder, how does one get into the habit of using all of the information available to them in order to figure out the deal? I was so busy in counting my tricks and losers and figuring out where I can find that extra source of tricks that I didn’t notice how many high-card points the no-trump bidder showed up with, or how many points the passed hand revealed. I suppose a lot of that comes with time and practice.

I’m looking forward to the challenges that Level 2 will bring.

The analogy I used to use when I was teaching bridge was that it’s rather like learning to drive. At the beginning you’re still having to think consciously about where the brake is, or how to signal a turn, or look in your mirrors — there’s really no time to worry about other traffic, let alone where you’re going! But eventually all that stuff becomes subconscious, and you can think about higher level stuff. The same thing happens with bridge — the basics become automatic, and you can spend your time thinking about the important stuff.

Grats on finishing Level 1 — but be warned, they get a lot harder. I remember Fred telling me that Eric Rodwell had trouble with a couple of the deals in Level 5!
