Learn how to win tricks at bridge whether you play contract bridge, party bridge, or duplicate bridge. You can win tricks by playing high cards (master cards), with established cards or established suits, or by trumping. You can learn to play bridge only if you learn the three ways to win .   Terence Reese, a prolific author of bridge books, points out that there are only four ways of taking a trick, and two of these are very easy playing a high card that no one else can beat; trumping an opponent's high card; establishing long cards (the last cards in a suit will take tricks if the opponents don't have the suit and are unable to trump).

Bridge - Bridge - How to play contract bridge: The standard card deck is used.

Inveterate whist players, unwilling to forgo their game merely because there were only three available players, played a game called “dummy” (with one hand exposed) long before any bridge game was known or willingly played. The origin of bridge whist is not definitely known, but a similar. making your contract. If you’re playing a notrump contract, this means counting how many tricks you can win right away. In theory, you could also count winners when playing a suit contract, but it is usually easier to count your losers instead, since you will be able to trump the opponents’ winners in a suit once you run out of that suit.
