About the AuthorABOUT THE AUTHOR         Critics’ ViewpointCRITICS’ VIEWPOINT

For most bridge players, defence is the hardest part of the game. In this book, acclaimed British author Danny Roth takes his readers through the most common causes of errors on defence: taking tricks too early, not cashing out when necessary, not using all the information available from the bidding and play, not making the most of the defensive trump holdings, careless discarding, and many more. He explains how to recognize the dangers, and how to handle each of them correctly. The situations he describes are encountered every day; careful study of the examples in this book will make the reader a better card player, and improved scores will certainly follow.
