A deeply rooted conviction that imagination is not necessary to play bridge lingers among some bridge players. Imagination is something beautiful but totally useless. Literature, poetry, art - these are the regions where imagination reigns. I definitely do not agree with such an approach. Imagination is full of colours, fragrances and soft lines. Imagination is like a woman. Conquered by force, she is initially submissive and obedient but, sooner or later, her charm and ability to develop vanish if she is not taken care of. If we define imagination as active ability to project different shapes of bridge problems then without this creative ability we cannot become outstanding players. Imagination allows us to construct more or less possible solutions in our minds.
