There are many such general guidelines for bridge players - some of them valuable, some not. But these are the Bridge Myths, not the Bridge Rules - because they all have exceptions and none should be followed blindly. In reading this book you will get to see what it is about each guideline that makes it so useful; more importantly, you will also learn to recognize the times when you should ignore it.

Draw trumps straight away Third hand high
Hold up an ace Return partner's suit
Win as cheaply as possible Cover an honor with an honor
Play low in second seat Second hand low
Eight ever, nine never Capture an honor with an honor
Ruff losers in the dummy Lead through strength
Finesse whenever you can Discard from your weakest suit
Play on your longest suit first Score a ruff when you can
Lead towards high cards Never give a ruff-and-sluff
Ruff the defenders' winners Split your honors
Lead low to a trick Follow low when a trick is lost
Run your longest suit Don't ruff partner's winner
Leave the big decision until last
