The endplay is an aspect of declarer play at bridge that many players think is beyond them. Yet while endplays can be extremely complex, the basic principles are not. Five years ago, David Bird wrote Bridge Squeezes for Everyone, a book about an even more complex topic that has become a modern classic. Using the same straightforward, conversational style and helpful recaps and quizzes that characterized the earlier book, this new book will take endplays from intimidating to understandable for many readers who have been afraid to attempt to learn them.
David Bird (Southampton, UK) is the world's most prolific bridge writer, with 150 bridge books to his name. Known for the clarity of his writing and explanations, he has won the American Bridge Teachers' Association Book of the Year Award a record nine times. His celebrated humorous fiction series, featuring the cantankerous Abbot, has run for over 45 years.
"Endplays are common. If you are not making them on a regular basis, this book will make you aware of the possibilities and improve your bridge. David Bird is a very experienced writer. He writes with clarity and chooses his examples and quizzes well."
— South Wales Evening Post
"Loaded with examples and a chatty style to make details quick and easy to absorb. Bridge players will relish the concrete step-by-step illustrated tips throughout."
— Mid-West Book Review
"This (and the earlier book on squeezes) should be required reading. It is easy to read for the first time, and a repeat will leave you wondering why you ever thought that this kind of cardplay was beyond you. I loved this book, and if you are a good card player then I think you will too"
