Designed for players who are familiar with standard bidding, this book covers all aspects of switching over to a 2/1 Game-forcing approach. Itís a comprehensive eight-lesson course, and includes dozens of full-deal examples that can be used to practice bidding and cardplay.
Bill Treble (Winnipeg, Canada) is an expert bridge player and former bronze medalist in the Canadian Teams Championship. He is a two-time winner of the Canadian Open Pairs Championship, in 200 and 2002. His wife Sue, a bridge teacher, wishes Bill would listen to the advice in this book.
†"Two-over-one: A First Course" might be called two-over-one light. It presumes that players who are used to playing Standard American are ready for the change to two-over-one and provides them with a basic framework in the very first chapter. After that, Treble examines the forcing notrump structure, two-over-one auctions themselves, whether to reach for game or slam in a major, dealing with the minor suits, and incorporating Roman Key-Card Blackwood into your bidding arsenal. Throughout there are many practice hands to help reinforce the principles established. The book ends with three chapters of practice hands which make for interesting bedside reading.
