Every Bridge player aspires to become an expert or at least one of top notch players who can command some respect from his opponents. But Bridge is game where expertise can only come with talent and real hard work. Working hard at Bridge means being able to read the opponents' cards.

For it is only when you are alert enough to count the hand as the tricks expose themselves on the Bridge table, that you will be having a high success rate at Bridge. The Bridge player's greatest satisfaction comes when he is able to read the opponents original distribution and then successfully locate the lie of the honours that matter in the making of the contract.
February 26, the cut off date for verification of SIMs has past and my cellphone is still working. However, it is not the end of anxiety. I and millions of senior citizens whose finger prints have faded to almost nil failed the biometric verification and live in tension wondering when our SIMs will be cancelled.
