About the Book

Test your defensive play! This book is designed to accompany Planning in Defense, Book 11 in the Bridge Technique series.

Why should you want to polish your defensive technique? There are two very good reasons. The first is that it is the hardest aspect of the game. Even expert defenders have to work on every deal. The more practice you have, the better you will get. The second reason is that in every bridge session you play, you will be a defender roughly twice as often as you will be declarer. So the rewards to be gained are considerable.

The basic principles of defensive play are straightforward, but applying them is not always so easy. Rest assured that some serious challenges await you in these pages!
