About the Book

Why listen to advice from someone you've never heard of? The simple answer is, because Dan Romm is a winner. While others have made their names winning championships, he has spent over forty years playing bridge for money, in games that included some of the world's best players. And he has been a consistent winner. Now he tells you how he did it. He describes the factors that will make you a winning player: judgment, adaptability, planning, psychology, and lastly, technique. He talks about how to recognize when to ignore the rules, which overall strategies work and which don't, and how to get the best out of your partners. Finally, while promoting a bidding style that is largely natural, he discusses a number of popular conventions, explaining their drawbacks and recommending a (very) few as being worth playing. This is a unique book that can help turn you, too, into a winner.
