Test your card reading! This book is designed to accompany Reading the Cards, Book 10 in the Bridge Technique series.
It sometimes seems that expert players are able to see through the backs of the cards! Their finesses win more often, and they choose unerringly between alternative lines of play. There is a simple reason for this: they are adept at drawing the correct inferences about their opponents' hands, from the auction and the cards their opponents play to each trick. You can learn to do the same thing, if you are prepared to work a little.
The basic principles of card-reading are straightforward, but applying them is not always so easy. Rest assured that some serious challenges await you in these pages!
