Bridge, for all the magic some try to impart to the game, is only a contest of experience. Those who know and remember hands they have played generally are able to win when their less retentive friends are wallowing in indecision. Here are some problems which, once you have solved them, should provide excellent guides to games you will play in the future. Do not be discouraged if you do not score 90. The best of players have their troubles with these hands. A score of 82 to 90 is master, 72 to 81 top rate, 54-71 good, 36-53 average.
