🧠In Milan Macura’s mind:

How did you get into bridge?

Everything started when I was 10. My grandfather took me to a bridge course. At that time, handball was my favourite sport, but everything changed when I was 15. I began playing seriously with my grandfather. I found a junior partner and in 2011, I participated in my first championship (Junior pairs) in Poland. 

What is your best memory form a tournament?

The nicest moment of my bridge career was playing against the top Dutch team in the semifinals of the 1st World Youth Congress. We were down by 30 IMPs after the first segment and we had only 16 boards to win against multiple European and World Champions.

Extra tip from the Expert:

The most important is to be rested. Good sleep and drinking enough water is essential to focus on 100%.
