I guess the same thing could be true of bridge. A good player is declarer and thinks: "I've seen this hand before. I know what to do." In the process, he or she overlooks a better way.


I think it can be true of almost any field, Dave. The veteran can think that he knows what to do, because he's thinks he's seen the same thing before. But - because of that, he misses something that is new.

Yep - in bridge, too - and I think that many of us who've been playing a long time have had it happen when we fall back on "auto-pilot." I know that I have, to my regret!
