In August of 1985, I played on a team with the "HOG", Eddie Wold and two clients. While playing with Wold,

I got sloppy when I made two hearts instead of three in a K/O. Eddie gave me one of the best tips I have

ever received: always play your best and never practice playing bad bridge.

Board#28 from the second Q session of the  Mixed is a good example.

My partner, "Cookie" Hoberman led the Spade King and declarer won the Ace and led a heart

to the King and Ace. She cashed the Spade Queen and led another Spade. Declarer the led a

Diamond to the Ace and led toward the Heart Jack. My partner played the Nine and declarer

ducked. She now cashed the Heart Queen and led the last Spade. Declarer had to win in

hand and then led a  Club toward dummy to draw the last trump.

My partner did not give up on the hand even if it looked hopeless to score another trick.

Declarer, on the other hand , committed slippage.
