In this lesson:

"Winging it" is NOT the key to success.

Instead, the correct approach is for declarer to first formulate a plan, and then to execute it. However, in addition to deciding "what" to do, he must also determine "when" to do it. And that's what good timing is all about.

For each of the 15 deals in the lesson, Marty will explain exactly how and what you MUST think about in order to time the hand correctly.

In this lesson, Marty will discuss:

-  How to give yourself an extra chance to make the hand
-  How to avoid losing finesses
-  How to make the most of your long suits
-  How to overcome bad splits
-  How to judge when it's right to take a safety play
-  How to KNOW when it's right to go for an endplay AND how to set it up
-  When should you play differently at matchpoints

Here is an example of what Marty will discuss in the lesson:
