Sorry, this user has no cards yet.

Lynn, I don’t think it’s difficult to teach how to play the cards. To answer your question, very simply when dummy comes down count your winners, then your losers. If short of winners, find extra ways and there are only so many ways to do this - finesses, endplays ...

Aha, misunderstood you all those years ago. Fascinating. So you don’t ‘see’ end positions? Rather you get the logic of them?

Bingo. No world class players need to write down. Hence the search for more techniques as I think this is something that can be learned with a lot of practice also.

Interesting. I am not that extreme but I read a book: “Anna opens the fridge”... I would never imagine what colour hair Anna has or what’s in the fridge unless the author described it, which most people do. Similar in bridge... I can’t really visualise. I can count ...

Memory/Visualisation
Get you play so much you just feel it. But once discussed this with a top top player and he actually visualises a grid in the form a 4 way newspaper hand diagram and crosses off each card it is played, so very visual like reading a map.
Memory/Visualisation
I think I do the same, which isn’t really visualising at all but remembering via logic right? So do you see this more like an essay than a diagram or picture at all? Think it’s quite unusual, interested to know.
