About the Book
Join master bridge teachers Barbara Seagram and David Bird as they first show you the basic building blocks: finesses, hold-up plays, establishing a suit, making extra tricks with ruffs, and setting up discards. Then move on to learning how to make a plan at the start of each hand, how to count the opponents' hands and then use that information, and how to keep a dangerous opponent from getting the lead. Finally you'll be ready for more advanced techniques that you may think are beyond you: safety plays, dummy reversals, eliminations and throw-ins.
Loaded with good, easy-to-understand advice, along with chapter-end quizzes, key-point summaries and a glossary of technical bridge terms, this book is sure to help you become a better declarer, and a popular partner.
