Critics’ Viewpoint

Matthew Thompson is one of Australia’s best bridge players and teachers. He has the knack of winning a lot of tournaments he plays, with a wide variety of partners. I think one of the keys to his success is his philosophy – start with a simple approach to bidding and play, and the rest will fall into place. A few years ago he wrote up a lot of his teaching notes and favorite treatments in Bid More, Play More, Enjoy More, Win More and now he has updated it to include a few more ideas. He is a big believer that hand shape and honor location are far more important than the basic 4-3-2-1 point count when evaluating your hand. He explains why you should stretch to respond with weak hands, and discusses strategies for competitive bidding. There are tips on how to take more tricks as declarer and how to improve your defense. The new edition also includes a section on 2/1 as an effective system, and Matthew’s pet convention, Aspro Twos.
