About the Book

Beginners rely heavily on bridge maxims. Are they accurate? What is the mathematics behind them? Useful Probability for Bridge Players examines these questions. The emphasis here is on ‘useful’. This is not an academic tome, but a discussion of the aspects of probability that every bridge player needs to know and understand. Topics include suit splits, suit combinations, percentage plays, the Principle of Restricted Choice, and even the application of probability to bidding decisions.
