THE COUNT RETURNS

 
  This time it is to duel in a suit contract. Unlike playing in
No Trump, where you count Winners, in a suit contract
you count Losers. It is a different gestalt; the other side
of the coin; yin/yang; positive/negative; male/female; etc.
        Always assume that the finesses are not going to work;
suits will break poorly; and you can not trump a loser from 
your hand in Dummy. Do assume that you can always trump 
a Loser from dummy in your hand.
