The experiment involved staging three very different matches. A strong club team (the Weasels) played first against an average club team (the rabbits), then against a team of players who have all represented their country (the Wolves), and finally against a top international team (the Tigers), which included the redoubtable partnership of Zia Mahmood and Andrew Robson.
Every bid made and every card played was recorded and analysed. There was evidence of good bidding judgement – and some awful decisions. There was accurate defence – and errors which gave away contracts. In the play, there were both brilliances and blunders.
But overall, why did the better teams win? The analysis at the end of each match and the summing up at the end of each experiment, points to an explanation. The answer is… inside.
