Defense -- Second Hand Play


quiz-pic

You've heard many times, cover an honor (10, J, Q, or K) with an honor. But have you heard, if dummy has 2 honors, cover the second one played? However, if dummy has 2 honors and you also have 2 honors, cover the first one. If covering can't possibly promote anything, don't cover. 

You might also consider getting Larry's book on Defense HERE or try Larry's Defense Webinar series which you can find HERE
