Memory/Visualisation
I don't think there is a single good answer to this question. People think very differently ... some like words, some like diagrams and pictures, some prefer to read, some prefer to hear, and some do everything by trial and error. Thus each person has to develop a way to ...

Throw Anything
I also did this once, a very long time ago in a local club game. The declarer said, "play anything", so I immediately said, play the diamond ace. Declarer objected, director made him play the diamond ace, and I made a permanent enemy of the declarer and his partner. It ...
Online Bridge Ruling, Psychic or Fail to Alert
It depends on your method of hand evaluation for opening bids. I count LTC of 7, and that is supposed to be an opening hand. So if you play LTC as your guide to opening, that's a 1 opening bid.
