comment Have recent changes in bidding priorities changed the value of finesses?
@northernman: Aryabhata has a particular view of what kinds of questions are appropriate for the site. I don't agree with it, but he's entitled to his opinion. He and I have been through this before.

Not a bad question for a beginner. I hope that the answers and comments helped you to learn more about the game.

I have replaced the opinion based portions with more objective language.

@Aryabhata: If a finesse is is 50-50, are you more likely to play one when you have 22 points and an (otherwise) 40% chance of making your contract, or when you have 26 points and a 70% chance of making your contract? So if competitive bidding systems put you in more 22 point contracts than before, wouldn't you use the finesse more?
