The purpose of these pages is
to demonstrate one fact:
The four hands of a
bridge deal are structurally interdependent.
Defenders can employ signals
that describe these relationships. The suggested methods are not tested and
may be no better than any others that might be concocted.
Playability and practicality
are not discussed; nor is the integration of prism signals with other basic signals.
Cost/benefit of the
signals is not measured in terms of IMP's, match points or mental acuity. This is your
brain...This is your brain on prism signals...Poached.
Terms such as proxy suit and
individual suit are loosely defined and are the subject matter for meticulous partnership
When is a card played as a
signal? When is a played card forced and not a signal? Undiscussed.
Perhaps defenders should play
prism signals routinely. Perhaps, only when a player preempts and subsequently defends
with lots of long suit spots. Perhaps...I don't want to think about it.
