Do experts use Losing Trick Count ?

How many top players use LTC (ala Klinger, for example)?


I did not intend LTC to mean figuring out based on the two hand patterns and knowledge of partners approximate strength, how many losers we probably have. That is just standard good bidding. By LTC I mean going through the math of LT in my hand, LT in pards hand, total LT and subtract from 24 to get the contract level.  It just impressed me as a mechanical substitute for thought.  Then again, I am not an expert level player.
