Suit Contracts-Draw Trump?


quiz-pic

In a suit contract, declarer must always decide if his first move is to draw trump, or something else. The "something else" usually involves something like:

1) Needing trumps to ruff losers in the short hand
2) Needing to first set up (or take) a discard of a loser
3) Entry issues (needing trump to get back and forth)
