In this lesson:

Clearly, the solution for an iffy suit is: "Last is best." When a defender leads a suit, your side plays last. What could be better?

You don't need to go up with an honor and hold your breath waiting to see if it is covered or captured. Instead, you can sit back and wait to see what they play before you have to commit yourself.

If you want to force a defender to make a helpful lead, you must have a throw-in card. This is an inevitable loser that you can afford to lose. But, before throwing a defender in, you must be sure that your problem will be solved regardless of which suit he leads.

In this lesson, Marty will discuss:

- Why endplays are infinitely better than finesses
- How to know if an endplay is possible
- What must be present to achieve an endplay in a suit contract
- When it is possible to have an endplay in notrump.
- When it will matter which defender is thrown in
- What must be done to set up the endplay
- The great importance of managing your entries
- The right thinking when you do your stripping
- The correct mindset when given a ruff-sluff

Here is an example of what Marty will discuss:
