Playing bridge

November 16, 2008

A few things I learnt about myself while playing bridge:

  1. Strategy works better when you play with someone who is also a strategist. It is very frustrating playing with people who have no idea what is going on. Worse when their move forces you into a sub-optimal outcome.
  2. I am extremely impatient. This is my downfall. I’m too quick to force an end game scenario. I’d be better off learning to be patient and waiting things out.
  3. I don’t always play to win. A well played game is more important to me.
  4. Always always know who is your partner. Who is “us” and who is “them”. A move that is detrimental to me but which benefits us is still a good move.

Interesting.
